Training Update

  • Print

November sees the last three training events for the year: two PerfectIt courses, one for novices and one for advanced users, with Hilary Cadman, and Lan Wang's From Word to InDesign course.

PerfectIt is an amazingly useful program that picks up countless small errors and inconsistencies. Note that PerfectIt runs on PCs – if you edit on a Mac, you would need to run Windows within the Mac.

Lan's course will show you what happens to your Word document after it goes for typesetting which, as many of us know, may have you tearing your hair out if you get to review the page proofs. To register, just go to the Training page on the IPEd portal.

Thanks to everyone who responded to the training survey: we had a massive 166 responses and will soon be contacting the lucky four winners of the $50 book voucher prizes. We are expecting to have the results written up within a fortnight and to have the survey report available on our website for further feedback. So stay tuned!
