Free macros

For over 25 years, Paul Beverley has used his programming ability to complement his writing and editing skills. Latterly he has decided to make his Word macros freely available to other writers and editors and has put them in a free 600-page book, Computer Tools for Editors, which you can download from this website. The most powerful macro, FRedit, is available separately (but still free).

For greater benefit from the (well over 400) macros, we offer training for large or small groups, from the level of ‘What is a macro?!’, right up to macro power-users.

“Thank you again for this brilliant set of tools. I also appreciate your very engaging, conversational style in the book, along with your clear, precise instructions. You’ve guided this technophobe into a whole new world. I’ve been trying to find out about macros and, specifically, macros for editing. Your book and your macros are a real treasure.” RB, Montreal


FRedit

A powerful scripted global find and replace system (latest version: 08 Feb 2014).

“I downloaded [it] … to see how it would work with a Spanish article that I’m editing. I have to report that the macro is FABULOUS! I usually spend a lot of time hanging accents on words that are supposed to have them; after setting up the script file as directed, I ran the macro and wiped a significant amount of time off the editing process. It wasn’t difficult and the time saved is enormous.”
