[bksvol-discuss] Re: Bolded words in text

Yes, I do scan also and I proof as I scan so I have my proof reading scan turned on and pick up the bolded text, Italic, all caps, etc. It takes longer to proof as I go, but I'm reading the book at the same time so in the long run I figure it's easier to scan, read and proof all at the same time. When I'm done reading the book, I'm ready to submit it also. I try to incorporate everything from the list to make the book pretty much ready for admin approval by the time I submit so for proofers it should be a snap. I'm waiting for some Leigh Greenwood books to arrive and then I'll be scanning again. I've been proofing mostly lately.
