I successfully made myself look stupid on the forums recently by being confused by the manual, and it was recommended that I update it.

Chapter 4.1.3 "Playlist Submenu" and chapter 4.4.3 "Adding music to playlists" are nearly identical. Most parts are word for word. I consolidated the information into the 4.4.3 section because I feel that the Playlist Submenu has very little to do the "File Browser" (4.1) and a whole lot to do with "Working with Playlists" (4.4).

I also added to sections that had no information in them (4.4.5). If I was more familiar with the Playlist Catalog I would edit that section as well.

I am new to Rockbox (2 months), LaTeX, and Flyspray so please be gentle. This is also the first time I have ever made a diff and the first time I made one with SVNTortoise.

I would love comments, as I cannot compile this on my end... yet. I have had issues compiling in general recently. I apologize for not testing this on my end in advance.
This task depends upon

Thanks for the patch, I'll try to look into this later today. A small comment from a quick look at the diff:
- don't use numbers in sections, subsections etc. LaTeX handles this automatically so adding this by hand only causes trouble
- try to run dos2unix on diffs before posting
- you might want to have a look at the LatexGuidelines wiki page, it explains some things that need to be adjusted in your patch.
