We are pleased to announce the publication of
Microsoft Word for Medical and Technical Writers
by Peter G. Aitken, PhD and Maxine M. Okazaki, PhD
As a technical writer, you probably use Microsoft Word to create long, complex documents such as software documentation, engineering specifications, and manuscripts for publication. Most likely, you are also aware that creating such documents in Word can be a major hassle. Formatting problems, automatic numbering that doesn’t work properly, styles that seemingly change on their own, document corruption, tables that won’t do what you want them to – these are just a few of the problems that technical writers often face when using Word. Frustration, wasted time, and unhappy clients are often the results.
The authors are both active technical writers and between them have over 50 years of technical and scientific writing experience. This book is aimed specifically at technical writers who already use Word and now want to learn techniques to maximize productivity and minimize problems.
