Formatting Manuscripts

Most formatting is discarded from Word during our automatic layout process, with the following exceptions:

  • Italics are retained.
  • Bolding is retained.
  • Underlining is retained.

Highlighting, line spacing, Word styles, font type and colour are all discarded on layout. Hard paragraph returns (¶) and extra white spaces (spacebar spaces) do come through.

Marginal comments inserted using Word’s comments function are discarded on layout.
