Chapter 6. Concreteness > Set the context for examples and scenarios

Set the context for examples and scenarios

Writers of technical information need to make explicit what's important about an example or scenario rather than just dropping it in and assuming that users will see in it something in particular. It might be obvious to you why you include an example or scenario or what you expect a user to get from it. However, users might not see what you want them to see in an example or scenario, as in the following passage:

Original

To enter a ringtone in your cell phone by using a keypress sequence, do the following steps:

1.
Select Settings> Ringtone Composer.

2.
Select New Tone.

3.
Type the keypress sequence for the melody that you want. For example:

4 4 4 (1#) 2# 2# 2# (1)

Ignore the display on the screen. It reflects the composer's transposition of what you have typed.

4.
Press OK. Name your melody and save it. The new melody will be listed with your other ringtones.
