The video definitely does not apply to 1.4.6 or 1.5.1.  The Help File 
for 1.5.1 says there's automatic bullets, but doesn't bother to tell you 
where to find the settings.

One thing I've noticed about a lot of help files...  To access a 
feature, the file will say "Open X and select Y".  The problem is, they 
don't tell you where X is.  :-(  Extremely frustrating for the new user.

I'll have to find the wiki and see if it's there.

The devs have put things in the Windows menu that I would never look for 
under that menu heading.  Such as Align and Distribute.  You're aligning 
and distributing frames, not windows.

Also discovered that closing the program doesn't close the help window. 
  Bad manners there.

Mac OS X 10.8.5
Firefox 44.0
Thunderbird 38.0.1
