The Paint Shop Pro 8 book needs an editor. Examples: 1. Steps that aren't steps. In a procedure, numbered steps should be user-active. Some steps in the book are really system results. 2. Too much jargon. Using 'hit' instead of 'press' or 'click' is jargon. 'Press' or 'click' indicate to users if a mouse action or keyboard action is required. 'Hit' does not. 3. Using terms incorrectly. There is a distinction between a 'cursor' and a 'pointer.' Here they're used interchangably at times. 4. Dated writing. Even Microsoft no longer uses the term 'launch' when they mean 'run,' 'open,' 'start' or 'display.' These kinds of mistakes appear throughout the book and are more distracting than helpful. The information is okay, but the writing could be better.
