We sometimes have to mark up PDFs for our clients, and this is a quite different process to working in Word. Ideally, you wouldn't want to do a full copy-edit on a PDF, but it's not unknown. Here are a few tips for working with PDFs.
Andrea at Yours Truleigh Editing I'm an editor based on the south coast of the United Kingdom. I try and use the tools at my disposal to make the process of editing as effiicient and accurate as possible and I'm hoping to share some tips and techniques that I've picked up along the way. I'm an enthusiastic and grateful member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. Editorial freelancers benefit hugely from being part of supportive organisations: for direct support for our work, such as training and providing routes for our clients to find us, but also for community, which is needed now more than ever. Please note: all Word tips are based on Word 365 for PC.
