PerfectIt Workshop

Did you become an editor to waste hours checking for hyphenation and capitalization consistency? PerfectIt saves time on small errors, so that you can focus on what matters: your words, their meaning, and producing the best possible documents for your clients. 
PerfectIt is an MS Word add-in that is used by thousands of professional editors around the world. You can use PerfectIt to check consistency of hyphenation, capitalization, abbreviations, heading case, lists, tables and much more. You can also customize PerfectIt to check house styles and enforce style preferences. PerfectIt is easy to install and use, and it finds mistakes that even the most eagle-eyed editor can find difficult to spot.
Whether you’re on a PC or Mac, and whether you’re an advanced user or a novice who has never heard of PerfectIt until now, this workshop will have something for you.
You don't need to have PerfectIt's software for this workshop, but it will be helpful to follow along if you have it installed on your laptop.
