Do you highlight actions correctly in your document?
2/05/2016 6:01 PM by
When highlighting items (file names, user commands etc.) be sure to:
- Distinguish the items from the rest of the surrounding text; and
- Be consistent.
Use the following rules to highlight items in your document.
|Bold text||Menus, commands, dialog box options, file names and paths||To access the application, click Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Defragmenter|
|UPPER CASE||Code keywords and database elements||Use the INNER JOIN clause in SQL Server to join one table to another.|
|Initial Capitals + Bold||File paths and file names|| Now open C:\My Documents\Invoice.doc.|
|Monospace (Courier New font)||Code samples, error messages||You will see the following error: error opening database: database is currently in use.|
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
