Be very careful with K1000.  It's developing a n-dash problem, especially with 
correction of end-of-line hyphens turned on.  I've found several problems with 
my current book.  In one instance, I corrected two words which should have had 
dashes and didn't.  When I used Rank Spelling initially, they came up before 
the fix.  After the fix, I used the ctrl-K function.  It found both words and 
when I told it to ignore them, it removed my dashes.  Also with ctrl-K, the 
word wellknown (sic) showed up in my document.  The dictionary didn't find this 
word.  It didn't show up in rank spelling either.  After I added the dash, it 
did show as spelled correctly when looked up.  Ctrl-K did, once again, remove 
the dash when I used it.
I don't know if this is new to v.10 or I just never discovered it before, since 
I'm used to do everything by hand.
Try to speed things up.  Find something new to deal with.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  Hi everyone,
      Just submitted two from my backlog in August. I took the opportunity to 
run them through a Rank spelling since I have Kurzweil now. These were fully 
edited before school started but I'm just now getting around to submitting them.

  Line of Fire HB Casefiles #16
  Nightmare in Angel City HB Casefiles #19

  I will be submitting three books that I've scanned proofread and rank spelled 
since I got home Friday sometime hopefully tomorrow. They will be

  The Ghost at Skeleton Rock HB Mystery Stories #37
  The Mystery at Devil's Paw HB Mystery Stories #38 (original 1959 edition, not 
the revised)
  The Haunted Fort HB Mystery Stories #44.

  Happy validating!
