No one became a medical writer or editor because they like checking for consistency of hyphenation and capitalization. However, all it takes is one typo for readers to question the accuracy of other content in a regulatory submission or scientific publication. Thousands of medical writers and editors around the world know there’s a faster way to correct mistakes so they can better focus on content and leave consistency and style to PerfectIt. This webinar is for new users of PerfectIt (for either Mac or PC) to learn how to best understand its results. Experienced users can learn tips and tricks that build on their basic PerfectIt skills. Topics include what the software can and cannot find, the checks that it can run, how suggestions vary by location, and how each suggestion should be checked for context. Come with questions!

This webinar is based, in part, on the popular session at the 2019 AMWA Medical Writing & Communication Conference.
