Macros can often be an editor’s best secret weapon by increasing your editing speed and consistency, but not everyone is familiar with how to install and use them. This introductory webinar aims to make macros accessible to anyone and everyone by showing you how to install and start using macros right away. You’ll learn how to analyse documents to reveal inconsistencies, how to use macros to speed up the editing process, and how to make global changes to documents before you start editing.
This webinar picks up where Paul Beverley’s previous webinar "Macros for Editors: Beginners' Basics" left off. Now that you've learned to install macros and use them to analyse documents to find inconsistencies, you’ll learn how to put that information to good use to make global changes to a document before you start reading. Cleaning up a document beforehand will improve your editing speed and allow you to focus more on the meaning and flow of sentences, resulting in a better edit.
In “Book Formatting Using Word Styles” you’ll learn how to create a fully customizable print book layout using Microsoft Word.

This webinar will also teach you how to correct word spacing, adjust for orphans and widows, and save your document as a print-ready PDF.
As a result of attending this session, attendees will be able to (1) use standard word-processing functions in Google Docs, including how to make comments and suggest changes, and (2) weigh the benefits and shortcomings of Google Docs in the editorial workflow.
