Punctuation and capitalization

Punctuation 

Everything is in sentence case (which includes periods), with the exception of the Tutorial title and the Section titles

Note: Tutorial Builder does not add periods at the end of coach marks. Authors must add the period via the text field. So please follow this guide for consistency.

Capitalization

Guideline

Capitalize the name of a UI element, but not the type of element

  • Hand tool
  • Appearance section
  • Swatches option
  • Gradient panel

Use sentence case for UI element names with multiple words

  • The Selection tool is for selecting objects so you can move it, resize it, rotate it, and more. 
  • If you see a shape tool other than the Rectangle tool, press and hold on that tool. 
  • In the Gradient panel, click the darker blue color.
