Type: potential to mislead
On page 30 there is this margin note:
If you start typing a location, Nautilus will change the navigation buttons into a text field labeled Location.
This is true for locations beginning with a forward slash, but how many new users know the root location is / and not "C:\" or whatever?
Presented with the default home directory contents, and wanting to go to, say, the Music directory, typing "mus" will not alter the location bar. Helpfully, it will select the Music directory ready for a quick press of ENTER to open, but it will not do what (I suspect most) new users will expect, based on that margin note.
