Better word processing: The Chicago Manual of Style interview

The Chicago Manual of Style “Shop Talk” column recently noted:

“When it comes to word processing, CMOS users probably represent every level of expertise (or nonexpertise), but regardless of skill level, we all experience frustration at times when we don’t know how to accomplish a task on our computers. Often we do something the way we’ve always done it—the slow way—because it just seems too difficult or scary to try to automate it. Is there a cure?”

There is a cure, as I explain in my interview with CMOS “Shop Talk.” I grew up as a book editor by following the Chicago Manual of Style, so it was a real thrill for me to do the interview. I hope you’ll find it interesting and useful.

Best wishes,

Jack Lyon
