    Look again, you will find a fourth one.

    The more you do this, the longer it will be before you have to start the second edition.

    I know, I have been there and done that!

    None of these involve the written word yet. All of it is formatting or color correction of some color photos. So, I appear to be doing well after 9 edits. But, I won't give up!

    Printers love to screw up captions and footnotes.

    Microsoft Word loves to switch figures and tables for the fun of it.

    Much to my annoyance...

    Ever try to do an index? Ever try to put a caption next to a figure instead of below it? Etc......

    Word is up to Version 12 already - you'd think they'd have figured all that stuff out by now!

    And considering Microsoft copied Wordperfect 5.1 to make MS Word 1.0, it's even more shameful that they can't get it right!!!

    Well, I don't have Word 12 yet Kirk. My version was bought with the computer when I started the book, as my old computer was dying. So my word is only 11.823 whatever that means. The print shop converted the book to a PDF file for their work, and I had just downloaded Open Office the week before in anticipation of the change.

    At this time, the book has a good table of contents but no index unfortunately. Word wrap around pictures and graphs is absent, but then this give me the opportunity to make the pictures and graphs large enough to see all of the detail. There are tradeoffs. I have had to leave blank spaces on pages so that the figure and caption remain locked together on the same page. Word separates them otherwise. I remember using Describe and it would even size the image in inches or centimeters to comply with WYSIWYG. It was a very good word processor but has now vanished.

    I've never used it, and it's probably a bit too late for the suggestion, but the open source world has a program called LaTeX that is often used in the text formatting of acedemic books. Iy can handle equations and other layout issues much better than Word from what I understand.
