Ultimaker Original Heated Bed upgrade manual question

A couple comments/constructive criticism about the guide I downloaded, version 1.3

(I'm reading it prior to purchasing the upgrade)

1) I don't know if this is a Europe vs American layout style sort of thing but the directions jump around.

I would expect the directions and pictures to go Left to Right. Not.. Up, Down, Far right up, Far right down, as they seem to be. I find it awkward to follow along. (As an example, I am trying to read along as I would a comic book)

2) There is no mention on how to attach the Z-screw to the new stepper motor. Perhaps easy to sort out once the pieces are in front of you. But going through the steps, it was just magically assembled already :)

3) The first steps of the directions state to remove the top caps (3B) and then shows a photo of the caps, 3A and 3B. The directions should include removing the lower caps (3A) :)

Again, not being picky, just trying to be helpful!

    1. At least in the part of Europe I live we also read first from left to right and then from top to bottom...

    2. Assemble!?! Z screw and motor is one unit....

    3. I actually see not much need to remove the lower caps anyway unless the rods are completely stuck...

    Its all together already? Very good!

    I was a little surprised at the removing of the lower caps too

    If you read the guide, its interesting the layout used.
