Do your reader a favor and supply context Context relates different pieces of contents. More specifically, it relates what users already know to what they need to learn right now as they read the help.
Note that all the examples are really vague. By the way, Chris pointed to research by Jakob Nielsen who found that location still works on long pages that require vertical scrolling!
Apparently, readers do scroll — and remember the general location of what they read. You might recognize these points about context as two of my Top 10 things that users want to do in a help system. Simultaneity implies causality That means that we often understand two things happening at the same time to be related by cause and effect.
In technical communications, this is most relevant to training videos and user interfaces. For example, two call-outs appearing at once will be assumed to be related somehow.
Be careful to create logical sequences.
Avoid presenting alternatives or unrelated items at the same time — and if you do, ensure to label them clearly which will hopefully clutter up your screen or script enough to convince you to break them apart….
Another example where simultaneity implies causality is people who can turn off streetlights simply by walking past them — which brings us to: Some psychological concepts are generally accepted as facts.

Author's Preface. This book is an attempt to place the relations of Sex in a new and decisive light.
It is an attempt not to collect the greatest possible number of distinguishing characters, or to arrange into a system all the results of scientific measuring and experiment, but to refer to a single principle the whole contrast between man and woman. Architecture comes in many different styles with different characteristics.
This lesson is about the style of modern architecture and how to identify modern buildings.
