Hello, I am new to this forum and can't seem to find a post related to the purpose of the numeric markings on the plunger part (not the cylinder) of the AeroPress. My set of instructions says to pour water to the mark "on the cylinder"! What am I missing? There are o marks on my cylinder.

Forget markings on the cylinder, it's best to buy some 1K/0.1g cheap digital scales and use these to weigh mass of water and grinds (though the Aeropres scoop is nominally 14g of grinds).
If brewing as per the box instructions, pre heat a jug and weigh out your brew water on the scales, then add to the Aeropress. If brewing inverted, place the Aeropress on the scales, tare the scales & add the water.
Obviously, if brewing with Aeropress & cup on the scales, remove from the scales before plunging.
