Patty Ewy asks: Do you have a graphics style guide? Or do you know
about creating one?
Any help is most welcome!

A graphics style guide is a technical document for graphics people.
Like any technical document, it has to be in the language of the
technical people.

One step would be to get with the supervisor of graphics, some of
whom may be better at writing or collaborating with you on a style
guide than others. If you are lucky, the supervisor will give you
plenty of yellow pad pages full of notes.

If not, another thought would be to take your notepad and run through
the software used. Look at the many options for document setup,
fonts, lines, and anything else they get to play with. You might
even make a screen capture or two and put them on your wall. Outline
your document from there. Go through each dialog box option and find
out: When do you use this, when do you do that?

PS -- This may not be easy.

Please let me know how this works.
