This book is very out of date, except for the first two chapters. Although you are welcome to download and buy it, I recommend Geoff Hart’s new book, Effective onscreen editing, available here.

A quick start guide for editing students, experienced editors making the switch from paper to online, and anyone who needs to write or edit electronically.

How to:

  • Define your role as an electronic editor
  • Work online
  • Work remotely
  • Edit using
        Microsoft Word
        Lotus Word Pro
        Adobe Acrobat
  • Manage e-mail when travelling
  • Back up data and programs

A full contents list is here.

By providing specific tool-use information, this book supplements other texts on editorial topics such as grammar, style and organization.

Available in both downloadable electronic (PDF) and printed forms.
