I'm delighted to welcome my colleague Paul Beverley as a regular columnist to The Proofreader's Parlour. Through his series of Macro Chat posts, he aims to share his knowledge and open up a dialogue about the benefits of macros to anyone working with words.
Do feel free to ask questions and comment on Paul's posts. Whether you're a seasoned user or a nervous newbie, please join the discussion. No question is too basic. Paul is keen to use his corner of the Parlour to engage with and help others so that they can use macros to improve their efficiency and productivity during the editing, proofreading or writing process.
He is currently working on what he calls a "spelling toolkit" that should enable you to produce spelling-error-free text more quickly and more easily. It's undergoing trials right now, and as soon as
it's ready for general use, you'll be the first to know.
Visit Paul's business website at Archive Publications, and access his free book at Macros for Writers and Editors.
