Thanks for this report. It usually takes a few days before the "online" help gets updated from the master.

At some point, you should be able to see the new pages (which are aligned with the LO 7.1 interface) for:

Grid and Helplines:  https://help.libreoffice.org/7.1/en-US/text/shared/01/grid_and_helplines.html

Snap guides: https://help.libreoffice.org/7.1/en-US/text/shared/01/guides.html  

I will leave this bug open for now (until there is a chance to check some of the changes, which were done "blind").

Everything looks right now (use links in comment 5).  Closing as FIXED.
