Exercise 3.19
Replace ${\rm Hom}(\Spec(R), \mathbb P^n_R)$ by ${\rm Hom}_{R}(\Spec(R), \mathbb P^n_R)$ to make explicit that we only consider $R$-morphisms here. A. Graf 1 2

Exercise 3.26(a)
The statement is true for $V = X$, but not in general. (E.g., take $Y= \mathbb A^1_k$, $U=\mathbb A^1_k\setminus \{0\}$, $I=\{1, 2\}$, $i=1$, $V=U_2\subseteq X$.) Paulo Lima-Filho 1 2

Proof of Corollary 7.19 (4)
Maybe replace the final sentence by the following, to make this clearer: These isomorphisms show that the presheaf $\mathscr H$ on the basis of the topology given by the $D(f)$ is actually a sheaf, and therefore yield the desired isomorphism (7.10.3). Caiyong Qiu 1 2

Prop. 14.67
The lower right triangle of the diagram constructed at the end of the proof is not commutative in general, therefore the proof is not valid as given here. Furthermore, in Step (i) of the proof of Theorem 14.66 (ed. 1) / Theorem 14.68 (ed. 2), a morphism $f': T'\rightarrow S'$ is considered where $T'$ is a finite disjoint union of affine open subschemes of $S'$ covering $S'$. If $S'$ is not quasi-separated, then it is not possible to find a quasi-compact such $f'$. Therefore, it seems better to handle individually the two cases of this proposition that are needed in the proof of the theorem: The case where $T'$ is a finite disjoint union of open subschemes of $S'$, and the case where $f' : T'=S \rightarrow S'$ is a section of $p: S' \rightarrow S$. Both cases are easy to deal with (the first one because it is clear that morphisms of this kind satisfy descent). A posteriori, the theorem implies that the proposition is actually true in the form stated. M. Bruneaux, P. Godfard 1 2
