About the course

Do you ever wish you could write your comments faster? If you’re like most editors, then the answer is probably, “Yes!” Commenting is one of the most time-consuming aspects of editing. With autocorrect comments, you can leave helpful and articulate comments with only a few keystrokes. During this workshop, Scribbr senior editors Neshika and Nina show you how.

We'll also share innovative ways you can use autocorrect comments to create bookmarks, track your editing speed, keep yourself motivated, and more!

Here's what you can expect:

1. Learn about autocorrect and the different ways you can use them while editing.

2. Watch the workshop and follow along using the demo document.

3. Join the discussion! Share your ideas and chat with us in #tech-tools-tips.

Have questions as you complete the course?

Feel free to slack the instructors @neshika and @nina directly or post in #tech-tools-tips.

Scribbr automation series

With our automation series, our goal is to help editors build a strong foundation for understanding automation and its applications for editing. Once you've mastered the basic tools, we'll show you how to layer on new skills step by step. Before you know it, you'll be a calling yourself an automation maven!

Our love for automation runs deep. We've spent years exploring these tools and their power to change the way we edit. By sharing what we've learned – and helping you avoid some of the pitfalls we've encountered ourselves – we hope to strip away the intimidation surrounding the topic of automation and help you not only develop new skills, but also wield them confidently.
