From whom does the complaint arise? Do your reviewers perhaps see it as referring to bicycling or motorcycling?

In other documents are you allowed to mention a cursor, or is someone opposed to cursing in technical documentation?

Hello all! This is my first email to the listserv, though I've been reading it for some weeks. I hope somebody here might offer a good suggestion because I am stumped.

In a document I have written:

"The InfoWindow, which opens when a marker or bubble is tapped, has a black background with white text. If multiple markers are close to each other, the InfoWindow includes arrows to let the user cycle through those markers. The report metrics are displayed in the InfoWindow in the order that they are listed on the report."

I am told that "cycle through" isn't appropriate to technical writing, but can't think of a better phrase, though one must exist.

Any ideas?

All the best,
