Thanks! You're right, I was confused. In the phrase "Pressing the
single-quote FOLLOWED by another character modifies the symbol BEFORE
POINT with an accent or a font.", I got tricked by the "followed". I
thought it meant: "press the single-quote, then the character YOU WANT
TO MODIFY". Of course, re-reading the sentence with your explanation
now makes sense.

I don't remember right now what I understood when I read it the first
time, but possibly I also interpreted the "symbol before point" as
"the symbol before point after you pressed the single-quote", hence my
confusion.

Indeed! that was my point. I got this docstring right, it was the
manual that I misread.

I don't know if it's worth changing it, but I may suggest to change
"modifies the symbol before point with an accent or a font."
with
"modifies the symbol before THE SINGLE-QUOTE with an accent or a font." ?

Thanks,
Alessandro

Hmm. Note that SINGLE-QUOTE is not actually typed, so your version is
also kind of confusing.

I propose an alternative as the attached.

I feel like it's still not completely clear, but I assume it's just a
problem of mine: if I have been the only one having the problem, then
it's on me, I suppose. Anyway, your patch is an improvement, and you
are certainly more expert than me in producing user documentation, so
green light for me!

In fact, thank you for your patience.

Best,
Alessandro

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).

Example:

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.

Best,
Ihor

Hi all,
this is not actually a bug regarding the code, but the documentation. In
the Manual, when talking about CDLaTeX mode (specifically at
https://orgmode.org/manual/CDLaTeX-mode.html), it is said, regarding the
single quote:
> Pressing the single-quote followed by another character modifies the
symbol before point with an accent or a font.

However, in my setup it's the other way around: first you digit a
character, and THEN you press the single quote. This is also reflected, for
what I saw, in the docstring of the function cdlatex-math-modify, which
says "Modify PREVIOUS char/group/macro with math accent/style." (my
emphasis).

I think this is a typo to be corrected in the Manual. Is this the right
place to make such a suggestion?

Thanks in advance to all and I apologize if this is not the right way to
submit an errata.

I post my configuration after my message.
