Chapter 11. Working With Illustrations > Writing Callouts for Illustrations

Writing Callouts for Illustrations

Callouts help connect illustrations to the surrounding text. This section contains guidelines for integrating callouts and illustrations. When creating callouts, also follow these guidelines:

  • Use the minimum number of callouts necessary.

  • Use the shortest and fewest words possible.

  • Move lengthy callouts to a note or legend outside the drawing.

  • Capitalize the first word in a callout.

    Capitalize proper nouns, abbreviations and acronyms as you do in text. Also capitalize prepositions of four or more letters. All other words are lowercase.
