Thanks for the suggestion! Emailing Org mailing list is the right way to
submit errata and other suggestions/questions.

You were clearly confused by the manual text, so you may certainly be
improved. However, I do not see any error in the text you pointed to.

To make use of org-cdlatex-math-modify (bound to "'") you generally do
the following:

1. Type a math symbol
2. Type ' followed by another character
3. org-cdlatex modifies the symbol from (1) according to the character
   you typed in (2).


1. \alpha
2. ' -
3. \bar{\alpha}

So, as the footnote suggests, you type the single-quote ' followed by
another character - to modify the symbol \alpha before quote.

"Modify PREVIOUS char/group/macro with math accent/style." does not
contradict the above.

If you have a suggestion how to improve the present text in the manual,
feel free to share it.
