Final editing and layout of manuscript

The final editing and layout of the NF may be done by a professional publisher, but if the editorial team is responsible for production of the final manuscript it is important that they are familiar with the features of an easy to use word-processing or desk-top publishing program. Appropriate use of macros and style-sheets can help the capable editor and reduce editing time and effort.
