Ran First_Layer_Test , now what?

I assembled my two head XL over the weekend and ran a couple of test prints.

Unlike the MK3+ I got a while back, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of instructions for first level verification and/or adjustment.

I found the instructions for the Manual_calibration_grid - so I printed that and adjusted (tool 2 needed a -0.05 adjustment to Y).  I also printed the First_Layer_Test - but I can't seem to find any instructions on analysis and/or adjustment.  The print looks pretty good, so maybe it's just a confirmation print?  IDK.

Did I miss a section on set-up / adjustment?

The XL has a Nextruder which automatically does first layer adjustments, so as long as things are printing fine you should be good to go.

The XL and Mk4 both have "NexTruder" which very lightly touches the bed and measures that pressure with a sensor inside the print head (its SUPER accurate), and uses that to calculate the first layer, the Mk4 does have a layer adjustment but its required, we have an Mk3s, Mk4 and XL (dual tool)

Many Thanks
