PDF documentation source was converted to LaTeX for the 8.8.0 release. Tremendous effort was made to ensure the transition was as complete as possible, but with such a huge conversion, some visual issues and content issues were encountered. The documentation on this page is updated periodically as issues are fixed, so before reporting any issues, please download the latest documentation here and check to see if it has already been fixed. For documentation issues such as aligned table columns or wrapping equations, the development team is making a dedicated pass through the documentation to clean them up, so no need to report them. For other documentation issues, such as invalid content, please file an issue on Github.
