The autonumbering feature in Word has been the bane of every technical writer who’s been forced to work only in the ubiquitous word processor since the last century. We stumbled across a really useful guide to autonumbering put together by our colleagues at Publishing Smarter, and we felt obligated to pass it along to TechWhirlers. The article provides a cogent, comprehensive look at how to work with the feature to produce documentation that gets read. Take a moment to read through it, and then download the PDF to post on your cubicle wall for easy reference.
Bernard Aschwanden, president of Publishing Smarter, noted that his team worked collaboratively to produce the Top Five article, and plans to provide more reference articles on working more efficiently with spell checking, and using grammar checking in translation projects.
