below are Alt commands in alphabetically order. Also listed
are the corresponding Ctrl commands and function key assignments
Note that your function keys may be programmed differently.)
It is highly recommended that you edit into a test transcript
and try each of these commands.
Ctl+KT - copy title page. If you want to copy a title page
from another transcript, edit into the second transcript,
place the cursor at the beginning of the transcript and
press Ctrl+KT. You will then be asked for the name of the
.WRK file you want to copy the title page from. Then you
will be asked if you want to copy the title page, title
page plus index/exhibit pages or title page plus index/exhibit
pages plus sworn statement. This command works best if you
use the .ti on/off and .ex on/off dot commands to surround
the title and exhibit/index pages. The command will still
work if you don't use these dot commands, but you may get
more text copied than you want, but you can then delete
the excess text.
Alt+1, Alt+2, etc - you can define up to ten attorneys or
other speakers (THE COURT, THE WITNESS) using an Alt+number.

speaker for that number, you will be prompted for the speaker
name. Then place the cursor where you need the speaker and
press the Alt+number. The Edit program will automatically
format the transcript with the speaker name (colloquy).
If you place the cursor on or before the Q of a question,
the speaker name will be formatted as a BY Line. If you
highlight an untranslate or mis-translate, the speaker name
will appear in the define box preceded by an A: (i.e. A:THE
SPEAKER) and you can then global the speaker name. Note
that if you use A:LEFT1, A:RIGHT1, etc., when you define
the attorney names, Alt+1 will automatically be assigned
the attorney name for A:LEFT1, Alt+2 will be A:LEFT2, Alt+3
will be A:RIGHT1 and Alt+4 will be A:RIGHT2.
3. Alt+Hyphen (Alt+-) - this command will hyphenate a word.

A hyphen will be placed at the end of the current word.
If you highlight a phrase (mark word or F5) and press Alt+-
All of the words, except the last word, will be hyphenated

be placed in the define box so it can be globaled and/or

to global it, or you need to global various steno strokes
to the same word. You can program a function key so that
when you come to the text of the medical term you would
mark it and then press the function key so that in one keystroke
you delete the bad text and replace it with the correct
medical term. To do this, press Alt+K and then pick a function
key (F1 is used for help and you may want to use it). Then
type in ^Tword (^T is Ctrl+T which is the word delete command

The ^T deletes all of the marked text and then the word
and space is inserted. Note that when you save out, the
program key will revert back to the original function.
