  • Really really nice edits, u addressed many of the concerns that i had - like

    • window vs dialog
      i.e. didnt want to use window - as it may confuse, but couldnt figure out what else to say
    • I also thought about "using mouse" but couldn't decide for whatever silly reason
    • I also wanted to highlight the control panel thing in "System (control panel)" in M2 > Step 2, but again lol, couldnt figure out how to do that or if it may create confusion

    Kudos
