Where is the place that I can propose the editing for manuals ?

For instance, right now, when revising COOR, COOR{2}, COOR{3} GDL commands, there was no mentioning that the these take effect after defining a specific body.

Well you have mentioned it here - someone from GS may pick up on it.

Or you could try the GDLCenter Forum ... http://gdl.graphisoft.com/forums
That is monitored more by the GDL guys from Graphisoft - at least they reply more there than they do here (for GDL problems).

Or send a support ticket to your local Archicad support people.

You can also make your further suggestion in this thread and I will report them to GRAPHISOFT for their consideration.

Yes, I have seen that and I will forward that to GRAPHISOFT.
I was talking about further/additional suggestions beyond the one you already wrote in that post.

Ok, I will take this advantage to write down few things:

Manual:
1. Style: for Variable names, insert "bmat" for building materials (page 494)
2. Connection with Grasshopper, I think it's time that Graphisoft include snippets examples for GDL that is controled by Grasshopper, instead of mentioning it in Grasshopper manual only.
3. Nurbs, the examples that are mentioned in the manual is quiet obscure, better & clearer examples should be set.
4.Radial graphical hotspot, type 7 is not clear where it's place, beside, the example that is drawn should be shown in 3D, and not in 2D only.
5. Object Migration, snippets must not only mention what they do but how, may be as comment in the examples that comes in the manual.
6. GDL debugger, must be included in the manual with careful instructions of how to use it with examples.

@LazloNagy

7. Examples for cutplane{2} is deficient
