Re: Question about the editing phase


Thanks!  This is exactly what I was asking about!

Go ahead and put me down to edit the dash/search bar/browsing section
(truth be told...with the exception of screenshots throughout the entire
chapter, I've done more editing than authoring). Also, put me down as
editor for *reviewing/editing photos* and *reading/composing email *as
well. If the other sections need editors by the end of the week...and if I
finish the above commitments, I'll take on the remaining sections.

Finally, given the editing assignments in the desktop chapter (which I was
not aware of prior to today), I probably stepped on others' territory this
last week in making edits as I was really editing the chapter as a whole
rather than subsections as outlined in the spreadsheet.  My fault...my
apologies.  Hopefully, my additions/edits served to offer further clarity
to what was already very good content.  I know now going forward.  My
assignments are above...that's where I'll stay.
