Hi Sophi, It's a bit confusing as there are two threads involved here. The first one is http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Use-of-quot-allow-to-quot-in-documentation-td4167829.html but a second thread got started about "cosmetic" changes. Does this help you? Most of my comments really should

Now I've read through the book (not in detail) I think it's great, but as it deals mostly with the principles behind help page design rather than details of style it's not all that relevant to my personal issue. But I do note that you approve of pages where "you" is used. - Peter -- View

Tom (and others), I'm not sure that "allow to" is such an enormous problem with the help files. There are only 8 help files which use "allow to" or "allows to", and only one of them has more than one occurrence, so manual change is easily possible - no automation needed. A far larger problem is
