Hi Deron:
Some more.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*** Paragraph Attributes/Tabs ***
I've been playing with Tabs to try and understand this section, and have
several observations.
- The default tabs don't show in the Tabs dialog box - would be nice.
- The Tabs dialog box is used to enter a tab in a frameless text object.
Then later the text is highlighted and the Tabs dialog box is selected,
the existing tab doesn't show.

*** Paragraph Attributes/Indents/To indent text to the insertion point:
***
I'm completely unable to understand what this paragraph is about. I've
played with Ctrl / and been unable to get it to do anything. "Indent
Here control" I don't know what this is? Farther on it's called Indent
Here command. Oh! I found it, it's in the scripts menu. I've never used
anything from the scripts menu. An Index would sure be nice now. At the
very least there should be a link to where this command is described.

*** Paragraph Attributes/Paragraph Type/To make a hanging indent with a
number: ***
It mentions the "Indent Here command" again, and now I've discovered
that it should be inserted at the beginning of a paragraph.
Following this paragraph is "The Hanging Indent Toolbar Button" with its
icon. I have no idea why it's shown here as it is not
described/mentioned here?

*** Paragraph Attributes/Paragraph Rules ***
I have no idea what a Paragraph Rule is. All my exposure to desktop
publishing has been 15 yrs with PageStream. I looked in the old manuals
and can't find any reference to it, so I tried it, low and behold it
placed a line above the paragraph. If that's what a paragraph rule does,
then maybe it should be mention in brackets in the first paragraph, or
something.

*** Paragraph Attributes/Auto Hyphenation ***
I don't think this section should be called "Auto Hyphenation" I think
it should be just 'Hyphenation'?

*** Paragraph Attributes/Auto Hyphenation/To change hyphenation for
every occurrence of a word: ***
"Choose Hyphenation from the Define submenu of the Edit menu to display
the Edit Hyphenation dialog box." Looking at the image directly above,
this sentence must be talking about the Define Hyphenation dialog box?

*** Paragraph and Character Styles/Introduction/Understanding styles ***
- 5th paragraph -
"Type styles applied to text before being formatted with a style will be
retained."
The words "styles" and "style" are talking about different things in the
same sentence. I suggest different word be selected the replace "styles"
such as 'attributes'.
