I don't have a ppro manual here.

Furthermore, this is precisely the kind of thing I want you to explain.
You already know the issues, I don't.  I could get a manual, read it
and I might understand all the issues, then again I might not.  Why
take the chance when you already know what issue we're trying to
solve?
