|Wizards For Word's MANUSCRIPT REPAIR
WIZARD makes it easy to fix poorly formatted manuscripts.
manuscript a mess? When you print it do the page numbers disappear? Are they
wrong? Do headers/slug lines print properly? When you add text, do your chapter
headings creep? Is the format inconsistent?
Manuscript Repair Wizard can
fix it. The Wizard will search for chapter headings and reformat them, search
for blank lines used to get to the next page and delete them, put a new slug
line in, new title page, and reformat the text to comply with Chicago Manual of
Style and Writer's Market Guidelines.
For example, let's say you created
chapter openings by repeatedly pressing the enter key to space down a third of
the page, and then used the space bar or tab key to get about center. Then you
typed "Chapter" and a number.
Later, you added text prior to this
chapter opening. Now, you find the chapter heading is near the bottom of the
page and up against the right margin. Ugly. Why did that happen? Don't worry,
the Repair Wizard will fix it so your chapter headings will never creep again.
With your mouse, click anywhere within the word "Chapter," click on the
# Chap# Reformat button. Magic. "Chapter" followed by the correct number
appears centered 3 inches down from the top margin. Those superfluous lines,
spaces and tabs are gone. If you add text to the body of the story in the prior
chapter, the chapter openings will move automatically, magically, so they
always begin on a new page 3 inches down from the top margin. No extra lines.
No extra spaces. No creep. If you add new chapters, all subsequent chapters
will renumber automatically. Two clicks-Ready-Set-Done.
You can open
your chapters with text or numbers, Roman or Italic, left justified or
centered. Have it your way. The Wizard will get rid of extra spaces between
sentences and at the end of paragraphs, and much more.
The margins are
set properly, the double space requirement is enforced, indents, font size,
headers, page numbers, and all the other formatting is done for you.
Eliminate extra spaces between sentences, at the end of
paragraphs, and more.
