DMG installation on Mac OS Mojave

The Guide shows the default, Icon view of items in the macOS Finder. It uses precise language, referring to the Applications folder on the computer [emphasis added], not a Dock icon or alias. This follows standard terminology used by Apple.

Nevertheless, the Guide will be modified as you suggest. The update may take up to 24 hours to appear online.

Clarity at last!
Thanks guys - we got there in the end.
