Bug Description

*These problems are in sequence from top to bottom along the page.

(1) ORIGINAL:
To start the file manager, open Files in the Activities overview. You can also search for files and folders through the overview in the same way you would search for applications.
ME:
What does the "Activities overview" mean? I don't know whether such terms apply today.

(2) PROBLEM:
"search for applications" raises page not found error:
Page Not Found
The page ‘shell-apps-open’ was not found in the document ‘file:///home/john/ubuntu-docs/ubuntu-help/C’.

(3) ORIGINAL:
When looking through the files in a folder, you can quickly preview each file by pressing the space bar to be sure you have the right file before opening it, copying it, or deleting it.
TODO: Test the preview feature on Raring and above.
ME:
Someone confirm the feature; I'm wrote this report on Precise, and it doesn't work there.

(4) PROBLEM:
I think that's the space bar with the missing picture image. Please see this.

(5) ORIGINAL:
You can quickly access common places from the sidebar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the (down_arrow) button in the toolbar...
SUGGESTION:
By the way, I did (down_arrow) in place of the down arrow image, which exists. The arrow should be a (left_arrow) button.

***Final comments***
I really think that this page can come with one or two good screenshots of Nautilus and label its parts. That would make this page much more readable.

John,
I think the main reason why you found this page confusing is that you viewed it from a GNOME desktop instead of Unity, while it included a couple of Unity/GNOME conditionals. To avoid that kind of confusion, please use Unity to check the desktop guide.

Anyway, I committed a change with a couple of minor fixes including removal of those conditionals.
