Hi Pulkit,

Maybe I used the wrong words... By index I mean "Table of contents" at the beginning of each chaper and book. If you need to update the table of Contents you choose command "Update index".... that is where the confusion came from.

As foe the index, Jean does not think that it is needed in a pdf book. She says it is best not to have an index for now.

    Hello Rob,
    I do not know if it is important to number all the figures in a
    chapter. Anyway Jean does not think so because the chapter was
    reviwed by her. The chapter has been reviewed twice and it was
    decided that we are not to change the screenshots in v6.2. I am
    updating the guide to v6.4. You can take the chapters of v6.4 to
    replace the screenshots. Ubuntu would do. The chapter was
    reviewed by Dan and Jean. So there is very less chance of error.

        I'm a bit worried of the quality of the Base Guide. Due to the
        speed of translating the Base Guide I am afraid that the
        quality of the guide is less than normal.

        For example at the top on page 14 of "Introduction to Base
        (6.2)" chapter it says "The field names forename (first name),
        surname (last name), and birthday are likely to be clear. In
        addition, a field called ID was added. This field will later
        take a value which is unique for each record. A unique key
        field is necessary for the embedded database. Otherwise, no
        records can be entered in the table. This key field is called
        the /primary key/ in databases."

        The sentence "A unique key field is necessary for the embedded
        database" is imho not correct. a table has an unique key
        (primary key), not databases. Also the primary key is used on
        tables in all sorts of databases. It is not only valid for
        Embedded databases.

        I recommend to check the (technical) details in the manual in
        order to provide correct info.

        another thing what we have seen in de manual while translating
        it into the Dutch language is the usage of numbered captions
        for images in the manual.
        In "Introduction to Base (6.2)" chapter and only the first 10
        images are having numbered captions and after that it stops...
        why is this?
        Going thru the text It was sometimes not clear which text is
        related to an image....

        Seen this also in the "Creating a Database" chapter.

        I promissed to redo the screenshots, Is it OK to do them in
        Ubuntu? I hope I can keep up the pace....

        Also the Index of the chapters has to be updated....
