Firstly, is this a help page or a guide?
Secondly, is there a picture of the page - if it
is a guide?
"Click the Send button at the bottom left."

Having said that, formulate a generic style
guidance and add it to the style guide, even if
this is the first (and only, for now) formula.
p.s. I am a non-native speaker/writer.
