- Found wrong command line option used
- The capture image in tutorial shows an older version of the software
- I’d like to recommend an alternative method to the one listed on the Reference

                    Hi, thank you for your message.

                    It seems that description in our Guide is correct.
                    The example shows the output when committing after adding the message “add: Register a change in an index”.

                              Hi Nam, to change the format from Backlog to Markdown, please click ‘Project Settings’ (top right area) > General tab > choose Markdown for the Formatting Rules, then hit ‘Submit’

                              For the existing wiki pages, I am afraid that you need to convert the format of contents manually.

                              Thank you.

                            • why should I still select what system I use after I've selected the system which I used?

                              I'm using the Chinese version in China, in the beginner's tutorial, when the website requires me to choose my system(Mac, Windows, or CMD), I chose cmd and clicked "next". The page it comes to is still a system-selection page. I tried other options and got the same result. I tried to access the pages directly from the category at the left, only to result in the same system-selection page. No javascript errors reported. website loading is finished. Orange(桔子浏览器) is my Browser.

                                Hi, thank you for your report. We haven’t tested with the browser ‘Orange’, hence we are unable to support it, sorry.
                                Would you please use other browsers, like IE, Chrome and Safari?

                                      • Please update the upset instructions

                                        Please update your installation instructions, especially about the part about Git Config. The new version of TortiseGit includes the hierarchical git configuration. It is very confusing what 'Local/Global/System' means and which to choose. It will be helpful if you can explain them in simpler terms in your tutorial.

                                          Hi, thank you so much for your feedback.

                                          Ref: https://cacoo.com/diagrams/V40yIgxdyyShctcq

                                          The difference of each level:
                                          Local – the current repository settings stored locally in .git/config
                                          Project – settings for the current repository stored within the repository in /.tgitconfig
                                          Global – settings for the current user
                                          System – settings for all users of the system

                                          Kindly have a look at the below Tortoisegit document page:

                                          Thank you.

                                          Explain why you must delete and create a new tag in order to move a tag.

                                            We can move a tag with ‘-f’ option, like “git tag -f v1”.
                                            We will delete the sentence “If you want to move a certain tag, you will have to delete it and create a new tag with the same name.”.
