Description Rainer Bielefeld 2014-04-11 04:53:23 UTC
We have 2 Kinds of back and forward buttons in wizards:

[<< Back] [Forward >>] in Wizard for 
Presentation, Euro Converter

[< Back] [Forward >] in Wizard for 
Letter, Fax, Agenda, Web Page, Document Converter, Address Data Source, Mail Merge Wizard

I can't see any system in that and also no benefit. I think all should use
[< Back] [Forward >]

(a) Additionally in Help seems to be some confusion, using differen wording for the same function. Example:

(a1) Mail Merge Wizard
View the selections in the dialog made in the previous step. The current settings remain unchanged. This button can only be activated from page two on.
Click the Next button, and the wizard uses the current dialog settings and proceeds to the next step. If you are on the last step, this button becomes Create.

(a2) Presentation Wizard
<< Back
Returns to the previous step without deleting your current settings. You can only select this button after the second editing step.
Next >>
Accepts the new settings and moves to the next page. You will not be able to select this button in the last editing step.
