Default DFRPG spell range - regular spells?

Hi,
as far as I remember from earlier days with the classic GURPS spell magic there was a range penalty for regular spells, something like -1 per yard.

Is it right that this is no longer true for the DFRPG?

For instance, if I cast a regular spell like 'sound', it does not matter if the target hex for my sound is 1 yard or 10 yards away as long as I can see it, right? Thanks!

Or does ranger matter in any way? The only mentioning of range I noticed, yet, was regarding long range information spells...

See Spells p12 (regular spells) and 13 (area spells). It's the same -1 per yard as it always was.

Ok, thanks, after reading that page, I realized I overlooked that one sentence (even though, having played with the classic GURPS magic before, I knew that there probably 'should' be something like spell range...)

But I have to say, the way it is placed there, that sentence is quite inconsiderable, not well suited for beginners. It really takes precise reading to take the information out of that second half the sentence.
IMHO for better access there should have been a fat printed "Range:" or something like that at the beginning of the sentence. And there is also not a single reference to the word 'range' or 'distance' in the index (searched for it). Maybe for an updated version... ;)
