Are you comfortable copy editing text but aren’t as confident when it comes to visual elements? Then this webinar is for you.

The visual elements of a document matter as much as the text. If visual elements lack consistency with one another or with the surrounding text, it frustrates readers and hampers comprehension. In this webinar, participants will learn how to put Standard D12 of the Professional Editorial Standards (“Ensure all tables, visual elements, and multimedia are consistent with surrounding text and are consistently presented”) into practice.
