Hello Ari,

Your patch spans many lines across the document. I have checked the patch and 
found majority of the changes would not be gramatically correct. 

I have therefore decided not to apply this patch. Please revert your working 
copy of quickguide.xml to r625. Then modify the Screenshot section as 
required. You are indeed correct that it is not possible to capture a dialog 
or window, only the entire screen. Please submit a patch containing just the 
changes you require for this section.

Many thanks,
Sean Wheller
