How to use PerfectIt in your work
- Do you work with clients who have different style requirements? PerfectIt makes it easy to swap between styles.
- Do your clients often want to make last-minute changes to the text, affecting things such as your carefully edited abbreviations? With PerfectIt, you can quickly re-check that terms are given in full at first use and then abbreviated.
- Does your work involve fiddly formatting, such as putting nonbreaking spaces in numbers and units or dates? PerfectIt can do that type of formatting at one fell swoop, leaving you to focus on other aspects of the job.
