Don't put yourself down like this. The only reason why I caught this was that I have been doing this for almost 20 years. Your adding the step number was something that needed to be done. I have now reviewed three chapters which you reviewed before me. I quickly noticed just how well you can spot things, seeming small things, that others would have passed over. This is the reason why your are a very valuable asset to our group. I am much stronger in doing the writing; you are much stronger in finding the little mistakes that we make.

On question #2: You made a very good point on this: the page number has to be included in the text.

Hi Dan and Team,

Apologies, but I suppose I'm now out of my depths on this one. The references you're discussing were original in the documents when I downloaded them as a draft. I simply added the step number to hopefully highlight further, where to look in the text.

To Leo's point, I can absolutely see how keeping the page number is important for hard copy reading.

    Then "on page x" does serve a purpose, so this should be kept as is.

    The problem part of what you wrote is in where the reader is taken
    you control + click the a link. Both links will take the reader to
    7 not page 8. Furthermore, when right clicking either link and then
    selecting Edit Field from the context menu, a reference number is
    among other things. These two links have the same reference
    number. The
    same thing is true for every sentence containing a link and the
    page it
    is found on. I really do not see a reason for the second link to
    be used
    unless it is changed to the actual location rather than to the
    above the actual location.

    This raises another question. Why was the link to a heading
    instead of
    where the information is located?
