When I’m reviewing your documents this is my normal process:

  • Make sure I’m in Normal view
  • Show Hidden Characters – select from the Type menu
    This shows me if there are extra paragraph returns, multiple spaces, or extra tabs in your text frames. You’ll learn more about text in the new few lessons.
  • View menu – show guides
    I want to see where your margins are or where your text or graphic frames are located
  • Ruler Guides
    I use the horizontal and vertical ruler guides to see where things are lined up.
  • Links
    I look at your links to see what elements have been placed or embedded in the document. (not relevant for this job)
  • Paragraph Style and or Character Style
    I look at both of these to make sure there isn’t a little plus sign behind any of the styles. When I see this plus sign that means that there were alternations to the text itself that are not defined in the actual style.

Here is an image showing errors, many of which you picked up on. When I originally counted them up I must have counted each of the right side text frame margins as separate errors.

And here is a video that explains the errors and how to fix them.
