New version of QGIS that I downloaded and installed has slightly different toolbar and property options compared to what is mentioned in the practical guide. However, I have managed to work through the guide successfully by adapting to the changes.
Additionally, I adjusted the map scale to 5,500,000, which worked well for both maps. While reviewing page 21, I have a comment regarding the legend for Pf and Pv. I believe it would be beneficial to have different scales for each legend.
