I must admit I had the same issue but I don't see much we can do about it. Maybe some help files.

Thanks Mic for your report. However, until this issue is reported in a way that allows us to improve the current situation (giving suggestions of what we could do), we won't be able to really improve it. Please don't hesitate to add information and we will re-open it.
