Re: [Rd] documentation for argument to screen (PR#9085)

The reason I noticed this is that I do not know how the screens are numbered.

And for future reference, is there a source that documents how to create a patch for documentation or source code? I have never made a patch but I would like to be able to do this in the future.

Thanks,
Doug
