Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

First, thank you for the Text Geometry description language, it is the most convenient way (short of CAD programs) of putting in geometry that I have yet found.
I found this document on this text format, which was useful, but contains some errors: http://geant4.cern.ch/collaboration/working_groups/geometry/docs/textgeom/textgeom.pdf
Is this document current or is it an old version?
On page 14, the description of :VOLU_ASSEMBLY seems to be off in several ways. First, it does not seem that one puts in "Axis of division" "Number of divisions", "Division width" and "Offset"
Second, in :PLACE_ASSEMBLY, the "Copy number" isn't actually put in either.
The examples in the persistency dir do show correct usage: it is just the documentation which is off.
Was this document written in LaTeX? If so, I can probably fix these issues and contribute the fixed version back, if I'm given the document source.
