Brackets

Use (round brackets), not [square brackets], but avoid using brackets where possible. Instead, try to simplify your sentence structure or write more concisely.

A full stop appears inside the brackets, if the bracket contains a complete sentence:

  • It’s definitely worth learning these keyboard shortcuts. (They’ll also work in other Adobe applications.)
The full stop appears outside of the brackets if the brackets don’t contain a complete sentence:
  • It’s definitely worth learning these keyboard shortcuts (as they’ll also work in other Adobe applications).
