Help pages incomplete

I presume Scott and Mark are aware of this, but just in case it's been overlooked: Some of the new entries in the Help project have no explanations as yet, just a blank page. ;)

Yeah... it's on the to do list (as are more entries).

Thanks,

there are a few things, mostly to to with text ranges and source code examples

for example :

the source code example at pages 36-37 contain invisible characters that result in script error
and has to have most of its whitespace and soft carriage returns typed anew

the problem occurs both when opening the PDF file in "Preview.app" and also in "Acrobat Pro DC 2015"

this may be a PDF distillation issue
