🔎 Today’s #proofreading spots are from a fascinating project I’ve been working on: a lateral-thinking puzzle disguised as a furniture catalogue.

Problems like this can occur when you’re typing directly into a design program. Word may have noticed these issues, but when text is added at a later design stage, misspellings can crop up.
I also checked for issues such as:
◾Hyphenation in words such as coordinate/co-ordinate
◾Style of headings e.g. sentence case Vs title case; full stops or no full stops
◾Contents page cross-checking against chapter page ranges
I love fixing fiddly issues such as these. 😁
I have a feeling this book will do very well. Perfect timing.
