Why don't official SolidWorks work? Loft & Flex

Still fairly new to SolidWorks so thought I would follow a tutorial on something I've not used.

 

Started with the "Loft" one.

 

It's fine, for the first few steps, then you get to creating the Flex feature.

 

Dialogue box names are not correctly named, so how are users supposed to follow?

 

Right Mouse Button options that are supposed to show (Align to) just isn't there. Called my support agents in UK to get them to show me where I'm being stupid. Nope, they can't follow the basic tutorial either. There are workarounds, but that's not really the point of a basic tutorial is it?

 

Does anyone else think Dassault / SolidWorks has a responsibility to ensure the basic tutorials are followable with their software? Or is it just me?
