PDF workflow

Digital editorial mark-up

PDF Proofreading Marks allow you to use traditional editorial marks in a digital workflow.

PDF Proofreading Marks are a great complement to annotations/ comments in Adobe Acrobat. All proofreading marks show up in the ‘Comments List’ and can be checked off when taken in, as shown below.

Proofreading marks can be checked off when taken in.

The benefit of using PDF Proofreading Marks is that you can quickly visualise changes, which you can’t do with annotations/comments alone.

The entire production process was electronic. All corrections were marked up by an editor in a PDF and sent over the Internet. This process saved paper, printing costs, delivery expenses and time.

MathType workflow: Working with Equation

Typesetting mathematical equations

Our workflow is built around Microsoft Word, MathType, InD


There are many benefits including:

  • • no re-keying
  • • removing operator error
  • • improving production time
  • • no more double-handling
  • • authors and editors set their own equations
  • • checking and proofreading can be free of operator error.

MathType workflow

In partnership with editors, we request equations to be created using Microsoft Equation Editor or MathType . Typesetting India Group can then automatically format all equations and export them to InDesign using our custom-built software (InDesign Script).

From Microsoft Word we perform the following steps:

1. Convert equations

Convert all equations to MathType ready to be formatted

2. Format equations

Automatically apply formatting to all equations. Formatting defines equation preferences, i.e. fonts, size and spacing.

3. Export

Automatically export all equations to the required format.

4. Import into InDesign

Custom-built software is used to import equations and align them into the text flow.
