6 229-30 Text correction: misidentified Floating Curve option
The instructions in the Real World Scenario: "Sometimes the Planner is Right" should be corrected as follows:

In steps 6. and 8., "the Free Curve Fillet (Between Two Entities, Through Point) option" should read:
"the More Floating Curves > Floating Curve (From entity end, through point) option"


Steps following 8. should read as follows:

9. Open the Alignment Grid View tool on the Alignment Layout tools toolbar.
10. In the Alignment Grid View, click the first line constraint entry and select 'Constrained by next (floating)'. Notice that the tangency constraint warning disappears.
11. Use the Delete Sub-Entity tool to delete the small line. Your reverse curve is complete.
