I would use display and not appears. I can not stand the word "appears" in
technical documentation, gives me the willies.

"Do this and click Save. The system displays the Ultimate Question screen
(Figure 6)."

Greetings, gang.

How do you introduce graphics in your manuals? For example, in
do you write, "[Do this], and then click Save, as shown in the
image"? Do you use the "image" or "graphic" or "illustration"? (I
deal with
screenshots of software programs and Web apps.)

Any thoughts? TIA
