  1. Desktop Publishing Unlocking the Secrets to Creating Professional Documents Developed by Nettie Briggs with all credit to Robin Williams Klein Instructional Technology Team 10/2000

  2. If the horse you are riding is dead, then it’s time to get off the horse. • Do you use a typewriter in your office? • Do you use a computer? • Typing guidelines broke the rules of print established as far back as Gutenberg • Are you still following typing guidelines?

  3. All letters are monospaced. Notice how all of the letters line up one under the other. You needed two spaces to separate a sentence visually Typewritervs.Word Processor

  4. All letters are proportional Even periods and spaces Only one space after sentence Typewritervs.Word Processor

  5. Straight quotes Straight apostrophes Typewritervs.Word Processor

  6. Use “smart quotes” Use ‘smart apostrophes’ Typewritervs.Word Processor

  7. Hyphens- Double dash - - Typewritervs..Word Processor

  8. Typewritervs..Word Processor • En dash indicates duration or compound adjective • October–December • Houston–Dallas flight • Em dash used as a colon or parenthesis or to indicate a sudden change in thought • A hyphen should not have space on either side of it—neither should an em dash.

  9. Few special keys Typewritervs.Word Processor

  10. Typewritervs.Word Processor • Many special characters

  11. Underlining is for typewriters because there was no other way to emphasize a word or phrase. Avoid underlining if at all possible because it is too heavy, too close to the type, and bumps the descenders. Typewritervs.Word Processor

  12. Typewritervs.Word Processor • Italic is for professional use to emphasize text. • Try bold type or a different type face.

  13. ON A TYPEWRITER THE ONLY WAY TO EMPHASIZE A HEADLINE WAS TO MAKE IT ALL CAPITAL LETTERS OR UNDERLINE IT. ALL CAPITAL TEXT IS DIFFICULT TO READ ACCORDING TO READABILITY STUDIES. ALL WORDS BECOME RECTANGULAR IN THEIR SHAPE AND WE LOSE THE SHAPE RECOGNITION OF WORDS. Typewritervs.Word Processor

  14. One type face Typewritervs.Word Processor

  15. Typewritervs.Word Processor • Variety of type face choices • Mix only one serif with one sans serif type face Serif Sans serif • May mix styles of type face • Serif history • Sans Serif history

  16. On a typewriter five spaces is always the same equal five spaces. Typewritervs.Word Processor

  17. Typewritervs.Word Processor • Spaces are not always the same • Use tabs to align text • First line indent marker

  18. The Four Basic Principles of Design • Proximity • Alignment • Repetition • Contrast

  19. Proximity • Group related items together. • Move them physically close to each other • Separate items or groups of information that are not related to each other Robin Williams
