Making the Most of Macrex
with Do Mi Stauber
Have you been using Macrex for a little while? Have you mastered the basics? You are creating main- and subentries smoothly, navigating the index with simple searches, and using your first set of style preferences.
But did you know that Macrex enables you to:
- never type the same thing twice?
- automate your repeated actions?
- meet even the strangest and most complicated of client output requests?
- set client preferences once and never look at them again?
- manipulate the index using group mode with powerful boolean operators for easy searching, entry comparisons, and cross-checking?
- load a previous edition index or an authority file into your current index?
It’s time to go deeper and learn some of the many powerful functions of Macrex, functions that will enable you to work faster, increase your accuracy and the quality of your indexing, and produce any output that your clients prefer.
With software demonstrated live and a chat line open for participant questions, this webinar will introduce you to such Macrex capabilities as:
- Yank, underline, and other ways of duplicating entries or parts of entries
- Table of authorities/autocomplete
- Grouping and searching
- Customizing output and meeting client needs
- Tech support resources
You will also receive tips for adding new software functions to your working repertoire.
You will learn at least one thing that will pay for the webinar in saved keystrokes and time!
