You can also define a documentation "filter" in Preferences > Help > Filters. I think the automatic filters have lost its usefulness with the split into documentation modules. But you can eg. create a filter "Qt5" there and tick 5.0.0 in the attributes. Then you can use the "Filtered by:" box in help mode (at the top next to the close button and the current document title) to restrict to that filter.
