Have you been using PerfectIt, but not explored all the features? If so, this course is for you. Learn what the advanced features are and how to use them to speed up the editing process, improve the quality of your documents and create client-specific style sheets. We will also look at a text expander (PhraseExpress), another useful tool for editors.

Topics covered

  • Overview of what's new in PerfectIt 3
  • Built-in style sheets
  • Creating a style sheet
  • Fine tuning
  • Notes and exceptions
  • Getting the most from PerfectIt
  • Demonstration of PhraseExpress
  • Testing of PhraseExpress
     

Delivery method

The course is run via a webinar, and comprises a mix of demonstration and hands-on exercises. Experience with PerfectIt is required, but experience with PhraseExpress or webinars is not.

Who should attend?

This is an advanced course; it is aimed at those who are familiar with PerfectIt and use it in their work, but want to learn more about what it can do. The course demonstrates features in the latest version, so those running PerfectIt 3 will get the most out of it. It is not suitable for beginner users.
