Hi Samantha,

Many thanks for your thorough and helpful comments.

Not much to report in terms of matters arising, other than to point out that I've included a note in the "Deleting a template" section. This clarifies that moving or deleting a template does not adversely affect a document that uses that template. The document will retain the styles that it originally inherited from that template. One slight quirk that I've mentioned is that the File > Properties > General page can indicate the name of a template that no longer exists.

The updated document is in the Draft folder, with all changes accepted, awaiting second review.

Regards,

Steve

Hello Team,

I've uploaded Chapter 4 to the Feedback folder (noted changes on the Status spreadsheet). Steve, I think many of your changes are cohesive and really enhanced the document's readability/directionality.

Cheers,
Sam.

Hello Steve,

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Regarding the bugs, I did a few actions to try to resolve it without
success, as I didn't want to delay the review even more, I decided to put the warning in the comments. For now, I'm gonna look a little deeper in those issues, and confirming that it's not some configuration issue I will
definitely report a bug.

About the text in the Data labels dialog, I can see now how it is important to alert the user. In this case, may I suggest inserting the text that you
wrote? It would be something like:
"If you selected a data series, Calc displays data labels for that data series using default settings (and it will remain displayed even if you
press Cancel on the dialog)..."

As for the commas, that was something I didn't know about. I will keep that
in mind in the next Calcs reviews, thanks for the heads up!

Best regards,
Felipe Viggiano
