third paragraph of the Power User's Clinic box at the bottom

This one is cute! The reference is to page 482, the page we are currently reading. I am not sure what page needs to be referenced instead, but it is probably not page 482 unless it is a direct reference to the last paragraph. If that is the case, then perhaps the reference instead of "(page 482)" might be "(please see below)"

Note from the Author or Editor:
please remove the xref "page 482" in the sidebar

Unmatched checks and Unmatched deposits paragraphs

Neither paragraph makes reference to the 'Add Unmatched Transaction' dialog the pops up when the 'Add One to Register' button is selected. This dialog lets the user select how the unmatched transaction is handled. In the case of an unmatched check, the user can choose to add the check directly in the register, use the Write Checks' window to record the check or use the 'Pay Bills' window to record payment of an existing bill. In the case of an unmatched deposit, the user has the option to record the deposit using the register, use the 'Make Deposits' window to record the deposit or use the 'Receive Payments' window to apply a payment against an existing invoice.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The Add Unmatched Transaction dialog box does appear and lets you choose how to handle the unmatched transaction. The 2013 book will remain as it is. The Bank Feeds center in QuickBooks 2014 handles this differently, but I will make sure to cover this in detail in the revised edition.
