Worth Noting: PerfectIt Version 2 Released

In prior posts, I have discussed and extolled the virtues of PerfectIt during the final editing stage (see, e.g., The 3 Stages of Copyediting: III — The Proofing Stage). Now version 2 of PerfectIt has been released.

The major enhancements found in PerfectIt 2 include the following:

  • Quickly scan through errors with a new slider
  • Return to past issues with the new Back button
  • Clearer view of the working document with PerfectIt running to one side
  • Compatibility with 64-bit versions of MS Office
  • Quickly assess a document with consistency reports
  • List revisions with reports on changes made
  • Limit checking to sections of your document
  • Significantly faster document checking

The following video demonstrates some of the enhancements found in PerfectIt 2:
