Documentation Bug: Resizing Cell Widths dialogue

Girls and boys and others, did you know that the Resize Selected Columns
dialogue displays default values drawn from the current table's width, the
widths of selected columns, and the width of the current text frame.  This
is terrifically handy because you can copy and paste from one field to
another to resize to precise existing value.

Sadly, Adobe has removed any mention of this useful information from the
current User Guide.  This was present in the Frame Tech format User Guide
for 5.0 as a sidebar but is missing from that for 5.5.  Hinge the following
table of default values in your User Guide under the heading 'Resizing

Value	Description	Default width value
To Width	Absolute value	Leftmost selected column
By Scaling	Percentage increase or decrease	-
To Width of Column Number	Value of specified column	Leftmost
selected column
To Equal Widths Totaling	Absolute value	All selected columns
By Scaling to Widths Totaling	Absolute value	Text margins
To Width of Selected Cells' Contents	Absolute maximum value	-
