No one is asking for that. But it would be nice if the Help Browser page for the Limit function made it explicit that if a direction is not specified, a default direction is used. Otherwise there will be people who think that omitting the direction indicates that a non-directional limit is being requested. Yes, if one digs into the documentation far enough, the information is there. But this is significant enough to merit mention on the Limit page. > In my opinion, this is a problem for educators and > not for the designers of Mathematica. Making the documentation clear is a problem for the designers of Mathematica.
