Thanks,

I thought I saw a link on it somewhere that allowed a single page printable 
version of the section being viewed. Am I dreaming?

Mayrie, Thanks for your comments.
It's just that since I want to read through Section Four in its entirety to 
make useful comments, I'm finding that I spend more time navigating around than 
I do actually reviewing the material.
I'm very glad that the manual will ultimately be available in more usable 
formats.
Thanks again.
Lori

Hi Lori,

Yes, I agree that this version of the scanning and proofreading manual is more 
cumbersome to navigate.  That said, I did notice that there are "go back" links 
in subsections.  That is helpful for folks only wanting specific information, 
but not so helpful if an entire view of the manual easily is desired.  And, 
also, that said, when the manual is offered as rtf, daisy, etc once it's 
finished, everyone's needs will be better met, I think.

I think that here, patience will serve us very well.

Mayrie

Hi, Everyone,

Am I the only one who finds this online manual that we are reviewing this week 
to be extremely cumbersome to navigate?
I am reviewing Section 4 about Proofreading, and whenever I complete reading 
one small section, I wish there were a link that said "next" so that I could 
just proceed.
Am I missing some simple way to read through this document subsection after 
subsection?
I am not a novice at reading documents with links and other internet materials, 
but this manual prompts me to feel like a total beginner!
Any thoughts appreciated.

Lori C.
