I have made some further corrections in this file.
On page 8 are two cross-references to Figure 6. One was correctly done
(using a field); the other was typed, not a field. I have corrected
the second x-ref.
On page 8 and on page 12, the figures were spaced using Returns.
Instead, use Wrap Off (from the context menu for the image (if no
caption) or the frame (if a caption).
The frame enclosing Figure 8 image and its caption should be anchored
to the paragraph As character. The image for FIgure 8 should be
anchored To Paragraph. Same for all figures enclosed in frames. This
was a new instruction from Olivier after the 6.0 book was compiled,
and I do not think any of the instructions on the wiki have been
updated. (Figures without captions are anchored As Character.)
On page 18 there was no step 3 under Figure 15. This was corrected by
right-clicking on the 4 paragraph and choosing "Bullets & Numbering >
Continue Previous Numbering".
Otherwise, good job! Those are minor problems.
And special thanks to Kees for updating the paragraph styles.

I have made the corrections and fiddled the page breaks a bit, and
returned the file to the Published folder.

I have finished the Final edit of chapter 2 and placed it into the
Published folder.
Please note that all menu paths and button were in Menupath or
LOMenupath. I changed this into StrongEmphatis.

@ Shravani: you have added a new image for Figure 8, but you put the
Caption into a textbox. Therefor the Figure had no number anymore. So I
deleted the textbox and added a caption. Please use Insert caption from
the context menu of a Figure next time.

@ Shravani: Also you use a theme in Windows, making your borders
Yellowish. That way your images in the document also have a yellow title
bar. That is not consistent with the rest of the images. So please use a
standard theme when making images for Guides.

Hi Jean

I clicked the button Reset in de Toolbars tab of the Customize
(Tools > Customize), and indeed now the button Insert Special
has a drop-down palette of Favourites. So this one is the default.
Thanks for the reseach.

My Win10 setup showed the drop-down palette of Favourites from
Special Characters icon, but my Linux setup didn't. So I dug
around a
bit more and I have found the answer to the mystery. Look in the
"Visible buttons" list for the standard toolbar; you should see
icons for Special Character (called Symbols on the list of
buttons), but usually only one will be visible on the toolbar.
goes directly to the dialog; the other drops down the Favorites
palette. I don't know which is the default.

The discussion in the chapter needs to mention this briefly, or
readers will be confused too.

Tomorrow I’ll look on my Windows 10 test machine to see

I am giving chapter 2 of the Writer Guide a second review.
I stumbled into a comment I can not reproduce.

What do I miss?
