My #1 Favourite DIY Editing Tool: Word Proofing Options
A very informative article. Well worth the lcick. (If only there was some way to catch those typos and mistkes. 😉 )
For pointing out gaping plot holes, sagging middles and uneven character development, nothing beats the eagle eyes of a good editor. I wouldn’t publish without one.
But for spell checking, grammar checking and copy editing, I rely on three electronic tools to help me polish my manuscript.
This post takes a closer look at what Word has to offer.
Word Proofing Options
Word has a wide array of proofing options grouped under AutoCorrect, spelling and grammar checking, and writing style options.
You’re familiar with autocorrect on your phone and the inadvertent, and sometimes hilarious, assumptions that apps make. Word does the same. Those funny substitutions don’t mean you turn off Word’s AutoCorrect; it’s far too valuable to ignore.
- seven AutoCorrect options
- ten AutoFormat options
- fourteen AutoFormat As You Type options.
- replace straight quotes with curly quotes
