Hi Deron:
And again.

- - - - - - - - - - -
*** Interrupting Text Flow ***
*** Insert Variable ***

*** Large Document Publishing/Indexing a Document/To edit an index
topic: ***
This whole paragraph is a copy/paste of the above paragraph. As I don't
know what to expect, I tried it. What actually came up was the Insert
Text Mark dialogue box? Oh! When I look back the paragraph above also
produces the Insert Text Mark box?

*** Large Document Publishing/Indexing a Document/To delete an index
mark: ***
- 2nd sentence -
"Choose the index topic the index mark references from the Topics list
box." I find this sentence hard to understand, suggest adding the word
'that' between "topic" & "the".

*** Graphics ***

*** Creating Graphics/Drawing Paths/1. Smooth joins ***
The second drawing is not correct, to have a smooth join between a
straight line and a curve, the curve handle must lineup exactly with the
straight line, anything else is a corner join.

*** Creating Graphics/Drawing Paths/Drawing curve segments/3. Continue
the path. ***
In the illustration, the description of the "option control" doesn't
match the description in the note above, and I believe that the
illustration is wrong.
After some examination I think that the blue line is trying to indicate
a three way OR. I don't think it is very successful.

*** Creating Graphics/Drawing Paths/Ending and closing a path/To close a
path: ***
I repeated the steps shown in the drawing many times, particularly the
one show a close with a tangent. I started out thinking the description
might be incomplete as I expected to have to use the control key, but
everything worked as described. But! What I did discover is that the
join is not made correctly.
My understanding has always been that when the two points are close
enough that the close condition is indicated, if the mouse is clicked
the two points will become one. Well, what actually happens is that the
two points are connected by a straight line. Even if the two ends of the
path are both curves, they are still connected by a line, and that line
can be at any angle relative to the other lines depending on how
accurately the two points were positioned over each other. If they were
accurately positioned it may take a lot of magnification to see the link
line. It appears to work correctly if snap to grid is on while drawing.
I had previously run into this problem when doing drawings and just
fixed up the joint, and lived with it.

*** Using Objects ***

*** Layers/Adjust Stack Order ***
fourth sentence - replace 1st "in" with 'or'.

Yes, they both use the same requester. Creating new/insert new or
existing/editing existing all use the same requester. Not really
surprising. The features are the same! I don't really see a problem here.

OK.

Fixed.

It also needed a comma. Thanks!
