Digital Proofreading Optimized
For those in the business of making writers look and sound as good as possible, the crossover point between editorial and design is typically at the proofreading stage. Making this handoff efficient and productive is in everyone’s best interest, and recent changes in the standard design tools make it worth (re)considering digital proofreading using Adobe Acrobat and how to make it work best for all departments involved.
In this webinar, book designer Paul Nylander will share the pros and cons of digital markup, compare three paths through the digital/PDF jungle, and offer a little peek behind the curtain to see how proofreader markup makes it way onto the typeset page.
Registration closes two hours before the start of this meeting. Nonmembers may attend up to two free Professional Editors Network meetings before becoming a member.
