Let’s Fill In Some Blanks
by Michael Starkman
We call them “block files” in Eclipse but some reporters call them “merge” or “include” files. Whatever you call them, this webinar will teach you how to create new ones and improve the ones you already have by using the advanced file features in Eclipse. One of the key features is the Add Blank dialog. Mastering this feature alone can save you literally hundreds of hours every year because your administrative pages are part of every transcript you produce.
Our webinar ideas come from our customers and Eclipse users tell us they want to learn more about how to build better blocks files. They want to have the witness names and exhibit numbers inserted automatically. They want to choose from lists of regularly occurring text – days of the week, months of the year, jurisdictions, attorneys names, firm names and addresses, judges names, and so on – rather than retyping the same information again and again. They want to take advantage of the caption box format that automatically creates new lines and wraps the text in the “birdcage” portion of the title or cover page. In short, they know that they’re doing things in ways that take more time and are much more tedious and they want to learn how to get it done more quickly and easily.
Here's Some Of What He'll Cover:
- What is a Variable and how are they used?
- What goes in the Field label?
- What happens when I put a check the Adjustable check box?
- What does Prompt for contents mean?
- What are all the other checkboxes used for?
- What is a List file and how do I make them and use them?
- What is the Caption box paragraph type and how do I use it?
The Building blocks
Michael is going to begin with a basic block file and add elements one at a time, explaining each one thoroughly before adding the next. He will step you through the process in a deliberate, easy-to-understand manner as he builds to the most multifaceted block file of all, the title (cover) and appearance pages.
Join us for a terrific, information-packed webinar that will do wonders for your transcript production. The administrative pages of, and text within, a transcript are tedious and time consuming but these features will make the process much more efficient and manageable.
