What Can Macros Do For You?

According to Google, macros are "a series of commands and instructions that you group together as a single command to accomplish a task automatically."

But that's way too narrow a definition. Microsoft Word macros are better described as "apps" and, like phone apps, macros do many different tasks. In this session, we'll look at what macros can do for editors.

  • Starting from an understanding of what we're trying to achieve as editors, we'll look at where and how macros can help to
    • identify inconsistencies early,
    • clear nitty-gritty errors by using automated find and replace, and
    • put markers in the text to point out potential problems to check as we read.
  • We'll look at a typical style sheet and see how macros can help us populate it.
  • We'll see what a macro looks like and how you can load one into your computer.
  • We'll get a feel for the wide range of different macros available for the various parts of an editor's job.

The session will aim to motivate you either to get started using macros or to help you see just what is possible with Microsoft Word macros.



After 20 years of editing, typesetting, proofreading and distributing his own monthly computer magazine, Paul Beverley started freelance proofreading, and then editing. He discovered Visual Basic and realized that even with his limited programming skill he could write computer programs (macros) to speed up the editing task. Ten years later, he has a bank of over 550 macros that he offers free to fellow editors via the internet, and he travels around the world (virtually and actually) offering these powerful tools to others. At age 69, he says, "This is the most satisfying job I've had in my whole career–editing is such an enjoyable process, especially when macros enable a faster and more effective job."

 

 

When to Use Bad English

Is grammatical propriety your highest priority? Do you abhor rude language? Perhaps it's time to think different and ask what you should really give a damn about. Our job as editors is to make sure the text has the best effect on the intended audience. Sometimes that means breaking rules because the rules we're used to aren't the right rules for the game at hand. Let's look at what works when and why.

As a result of attending this session, attendees will have a more fully informed pragmatic understanding of applying and breaking the rules and standards of English for best effect.

Effective Technical Editing
Presenter: Edward Fenner

Time: 12 p.m., EST / 9 a.m., PST
Length: 1.5 hours
Language: English
Level: Introductory
Member price: $59.50

Technical editing is a special skill that requires editors to create documents such as procedures that are short and accurate while ensuring all safety considerations are included in their appropriate places. This is essential for any technical communications. This process will be demonstrated via the review and editing of an existing short YouTube video on how to cook pasta that is both too long and terribly unsafe.

As a result of participating in this webinar, you will learn how to objectively observe and evaluate an existing procedure (document or video) using critical thinking skills. You will then learn how to edit and revise the text to create a new, accurate, and safe instructional procedure. This is particularly useful because it demonstrates how common practices are often extremely dangerous.

This webinar is geared to students or junior editors with basic experience in the topic area.

Edward Fenner is a writer, editor, publisher, and consultant with over 30 years experience in corporate and academic settings.

You may be an editor but you're also a small business owner. If you don't manage your time effectively, your income will suffer (and perhaps your relationships will, as well.) Daphne Gray-Grant, a former senior editor at The Vancouver Sun — back when it was a real newspaper — quit the newspaper business in 1995 and launched her own communications firm.

The most intimidating part of freelance editing is knowing what to charge. Estimate too high, and you won't get any work. Estimate too low, and you can guarantee yourself a life of poverty. This webinar looks at the two major aspects of estimating: knowing how much to charge per hour (or page or word), and understanding how to assess how much work each manuscript will need. It gives examples of estimates for projects that range in scope from a short story to a major government project, and also demonstrates and evaluates some online estimating resources. It gives advice on such useful business techniques as upselling, downselling, and running screaming.

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to confidently provide accurate cost and time estimates for editorial projects of all kinds.

This webinar is geared toward professional freelance editors (as well as in-house editors who have to prepare project budgets) who want to improve their ability to estimate editorial costs and prepare schedules.

The rise of self-publishing has vastly increased the demand for an old editorial skill -- manuscript evaluation (also called critiquing). Often you'll be asked to edit a manuscript that just isn't ready for editing. An evaluation lets you guide the writer through the task of reworking the manuscript. A properly prepared evaluation looks at a wide variety of aspects of the manuscript, pointing out what's working and what isn't. Evaluation is what beta readers think they are doing, but at a much more professional level. This webinar will discuss how to evaluate fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to guide writers through extensive, focussed rewrites of their manuscripts — and will understand their own writing better, too.

This webinar is geared toward editorial professionals who want a better understanding of manuscript evaluation so that they can include it in the editorial services they offer clients.

Ebooks should not be afterthoughts. Digital publishing presents great opportunities for large and small publishers. Ebooks can include more varied and comprehensive content than print. They must be accessible to readers who are closed out of the print format because of various disabilities. Editors can be instrumental in creating robust e-titles by including ebooks as part of planning and production from acquisition, or before.

  • What is an ebook? An under-the-hood look at EPUB creation. Tools, methodologies, workflows.
  • There's no page count! Plan the ebook edition from the start. What can be enhanced in the digital edition? What extra editorial elements can be included? What are the design needs? Plan extended, interactive backmatter, including a linked index.
  • Make every ebook accessible. Plan these elements from acquisition: structure, book section identification, image descriptions, design choices.
  • Talk to your colleagues. What does the designer needs to hear? How can the production department help? What does the ebook developer require?

As a result of attending this webinar, attendees will have a broad exposure to the possibilities and responsibilities of ebook development.

And, they will learn that by working from the earliest planning stages, collaborative ebook development can not only create powerful digital offerings but can enhance the editor's appreciation of the format.

This webinar is geared to editorial and communication professionals who have basic experience.
