Documentation omission

I just discovered another omission from the FileMaker 15 documentation for both the "GetRepetition" function and the "Set Variable" function:

 

How do you get a specific repetition from a repeating variable? GetRepetition doesn't work, and it doesn't explain anywhere within the FileMaker 15 documentation how to pull a repetition from a repeating variable.

 

The answer is that you have to use this syntax:

 

$VariableName[$RepetitionNumber]

 

This is not specified anywhere within the documentation, as far as I can tell.

 

Please update the documentation with this pertinent information, and better yet, please open up the documentation as a community-driven Wiki, so we don't have to wait 1-2 years in between changes being made to the documentation! Thank you!
