Introducing … Edifix 4.0!

Single-source and accessible publishing: Inera & Typefi at #FBM18

To publish complex documents, you need enriched text and XML for single-source publication of multiple formats (PDF, HTML, EPUB, Kindle…). But a state-of-the-art single-source workflow isn’t just about converting Word to XML! In his Frankfurt Book Fair talk, Inera CEO Bruce Rosenblum will address how leading publishers use integrated software solutions to automate editorial and XML operations and create high-quality multi-format publications. Wednesday 10 October, 1:00 pm, Hall 4.2

If you publish content of just about any type, it makes good ethical, legal, and commercial sense to make it accessible to all your potential readers, but producing content in accessible formats can seem like a complex and costly proposition. In his FBF talk, Typefi CEO Chandi Perera will explain what accessible publishing is, why it matters, and how you can get started! Wednesday 10 October, 3:00 pm, Hall 4.2

From the Support team

When you contact Inera’s Support team with a new support query, it’s important that you start a new thread / use a new subject line, rather than reusing a previous thread relating to a different query. While adding your new query to an existing thread may seem like a time-saver, in reality it’s probably slowing the process down.

Why do subject lines matter? The faster Support can identify what your query is about, the faster we can address it—and the faster you’ll get a helpful reply. When you tailor your subject line to the issue at hand, everybody wins!

Working with Word

Word Tip: Find and replace text in Comment balloons

Sometimes you need to work with the contents of the Comment balloons in your Word document—and not with the main text. Of course, you can keep clicking Find Next to skip over the instances you don’t want, but there’s an easier way!

  • Use Ctrl+h to bring up the Find and Replace dialog, then click the Find tab.
  • In the Find What box, type the text you want to find.
  • From the Find In dropdown, choose Comments. NOTE: This drop-down list is available in the Find tab, but not in the Replace tab!
  • Go back to the Replace tab and enter your replacement text in the Replace With box.
  • Now you can replace instances one by one OR replace them all at once with the Replace All button. Because you chose Comments from the Find In dropdown, Word will find and replace only those instances that appear in Comments!

Bonus Word Tip! Keyboard shortcuts for Find and Replace

To get started …

Ctrl-h    Open Find and Replace dialog, Replace tab
Ctrl-g    Open Find and Replace dialog, Go to … tab

Once the dialog is open …

Alt-d Go to Find tab
Alt-p Go to Replace tab
Alt-g Go to Go to… tab
Alt-m Expand More options
Alt-l Collapse More options

Once you’ve started your search …

R Replace current instance
F Find next instance
A Replace all
