    Quoting

    Hi

    I am writing a list which instructs the user on how to carry out a task on a piece of computer software. When referring to a particular button to click on, do I need to put the name of the button in single quotation marks? Example below.

    1. Access the record
    2. Locate to the 'Medical' section
    3. Click 'Update Medical History'
    4. Click 'Confirm Medical History'

    Many thanks

    Would writing it in italics be more appropriate?

    Not necessary. The instructions are clear.

    Re: Quoting

    "Locate to" is incorrect.

    Locate/find the "Medical" section.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
