Lightroom 3 Help: Missleading Wording regarding Raw+JPEG

I think the following chapter is very missleading in the Lightroom 3 Help:

Chapter 4: Importing photos
Importing photos into a catalog
Set import and file-handling preferences

If you capture raw + JPEG photos on your camera, select Treat JPEG Files Next To Raw Files As Separate Photos to import the JPEG as a standalone photo. Otherwise, Lightroom treats the duplicate JPEG as a sidecar file. When this option is selected, both the raw and the JPEG files are visible and can be edited in Lightroom. When deselected, the raw file appears with the raw file extension and +jpg. Press Ctrl+R (Windows) or Command+R (Mac OS) to also view the JPEG file.

I understand that what it wants to say is show the file in explorer/finder, but I think the term view the file is very missleading and should be changed.

Hi Beat,

I think you're looking at an old version of Lightroom 3 Help. That sentence isn't in the LR3 Help topic Set import and file-handling preferences anymore. I removed it because the keyboard shortcut is incorrect. If you're viewing a PDF of the Help, you can get the latest by clicking the View Help PDF icon in the upper right corner of any LR3 Help page.

Hi Anita,

Thanks for your hint. I orginally found the sentence in the following (AFAIK most up-to-date) help files:
- Adobe Community Help (AIR) out of LR3 in German
- German Help Page
- PDF document linked from above page

I did now notice that the sentence is gone from the English version, so I'm confident that the translations will follow.

Thanks for your info.

Yes, the German (and other language) Help files are not as current as the English Help.
