WHAT'S NEW IN 14?

WHAT'S NEW IN 14?

 Personal Command Summary Cards – You know those wonderful basic, intermediate and advancedcommand summary cards for the Default and CAT4 kbd keyboard maps? Always wanted one that wouldreflect your custom keyboard map? Done! You can instantly generate basic, intermediate and advanced command summary cards for any keyboard map! (Those users with the BCS option will see two additional command summary cards.)   Current keyboard map assignments displayed in menus – Ever wished you could change the shortcutkeys shown next to the functions in the menus in Edit and Manage Dictionary to reflect your custom keyboardmap instead of just showing the shortcuts from the Default keyboard map? Done! As soon as you change keyboard assignments or keyboard maps, you change the shortcuts displayed in the menus! E-mail capability in Finish ‘m – With Finish’em you can print a hard copy; print notes, text, or compressed to PDF, create an ASCII, export to RTF, CaseViewNet, create a job report –even back up files. That’ been great –but there’ one more step for me: I always need to email a finished job to my client. No problem –now I can email direct from Finish ‘m!   More colors for Job States – Six colors just wasn’t enough for nine standard job states, and definitely notenough if you create custom job states and want to visually organize by color. Now you have ten more vibrantcolors to choose for your Job States!   Brief It No Nag List – Realtime reporters tell us they adore the reminders, personal briefs and suggestions provided by Brief It during realtime; except for “this”one or “that”one…In other words, there are certain briefs that pop up from time to time for which you just didn’ want or need to get a reminder or suggestion, and it feels like Brief It is nagging you to do something you’e just never going to do! Well, now you can teach Brief It to stop nagging you about those specific items, by adding those items to a Brief It No Nag file.   Mistran Minder – You’e always been able to very easily find and navigate to your untranslates, conflicts, fields, scanstops; just about everything you need to find and fix in the job. The one thing that hasn’ been aseasy to find is your known mistranslates. Now, it’ much easier. As you encounter mistranslates, you’l teachCase CATalyst what words and phrases come up as mistranslates and in future jobs, you can have CaseCATalyst display all occurrences of known mistranslates in a dialog pane, making identification and navigation to those items much faster and easier!  QuickFix View and Reset the View – How many times has a trainee called or emailed you to tell you that “all of a sudden” the screen is “wrong”and you have to walk them through switching from Normal View to PageView or putting a dialog pane back in the proper place? We get that question a lot in Support and I see it all the time at various online forums and social networking sites. In Version 14, it’ll be easier to help someone“fix” their view or re-set it back to how it looked when they first installed Case CATalyst (without affecting any color choices or toolbar customization).   Always track changes in Edit – You love Track Changes, but it was a little inconvenient to have to turn it on separately for each job? No problem –you can set it to always be on in Edit. (Note –it won’ automatically beon for Translate & Edit or affect realtime.)   Customizable Macros Toolbar – It’ really easy to remember the keys assigned to macros you use all thetime, but what about the ones that you only need once in a while? A lot of reporters and scopists forget they have a shortcut and do things the long way if they can’t easily remember the assigned keystroke. Well, now you can assign those (or any) macros to a toolbar button! Having a single-click shortcut that you can easily find and use can mean a huge savings of time and effort!  Suggestions for stitched phrases – How many keystrokes is it to define or replace a phrase that contains steno that translates as separate nouns that need to be hyphenated and turned into adjectives? A lot less in Version 14, because now, when you mark a phrase like  next generation device, you can click S-t-i-t-c-h and get suggestions for hyphenation for that phrase, and with a single keystroke pick  next-generation device.  Suggestions for defining with commas or quotes – Stitching phrases is neat, but hey, you also need to beable to do that with commas and quotes, right? No problem. Mark a phrase, select the preferred global orReplace, press Alt+, (comma) or Alt + " (quote) to get a drop-down list of comma or quote placement options!   EZ Sync at Cursor – Want to be able to adjust synchronization from an associated audio file a little faster and with a little less math (figuring out how many minutes or seconds to adjust backward or forward)? You got it! Just play audio, position the cursor, and when the audio matches your cursor position, use this function and synchronization is achieved.   Easier automatic indexing with multiple page numbers in a table cell – The reporter you’e training requests help with setting up an automatic index, and says she needs to list the page numbers for every examination in one table cell separated by commas. In previous versions of CATalyst, the only way to do thiswas either to convince the reporter to format it differently, or to insert a separate format symbol with each subsequent examination, and to put all of the (up to 20) index cells in the Index Template, alongwith all the commas. Then, after building the index, delete all the unused commas. Yes, that’s way too much work! In Version 14, you’l be able to use just one format symbol for each examination type,and automatically generate the commas between page numbers.   Improvements to Build Master Index – ever make a mistake in a Master Index and then need to rebuild it? In Versions 13 and earlier, that can be a little time consuming because it takes a bit of effort to delete the master index, and then re-select all of the jobs and put them in the correct order. In Version 14, you can justuse the same Delete Index command that you’d use with an index built by Build Index, and Case CATalystwill remember the selected transcripts and the order in which they were indexed!   Automatically reuse case dictionary speaker field values – Love using Create EZ Speakers Entries andquickly creating case dictionary entries for speakers, but dislike having to re-fill in those values (or select themvia Define Fields or Use Other Field Values) each time you re-use the case dictionary? In Version 14, you won’t have to. If there are no values in the job history file, Case CATalyst will look for values for speaker fields in the case history file and use them –no extra step for you!   Auto connect last WiFi writer – If you connect your Diamante or Mira A3 via WiFi and you use Quick Tran,you’e encountered having to wait for Case CATalyst to recognize and connect your writer and having to clickOK or press Enter to confirm that you’e connected. In Version 14, you won’ get that prompt any more if you select this option in the Realtime tab in Translate Options. One less keystroke or mouse click, means QuickTran just got a little quicker for those using WiFi connection.   Spell Check While Defining in Realtime option – If you define from the writer during realtime usingAccelerWriters, you probably don’ want a Spell Check dialog popping up to alert you to possible misspellings.To prevent this, a lot of reporters just turn off Spell Check While Defining, but then they don’have the benefitof Spell Check While Defining during Edit, unless they remembered to turn it back on. Now you can have the best of both worlds –separate options for Spell Check While Defining, one when in Edit, one when in Realtime.  Enhancement to AutoRecover – Some Case CATalyst users have just never gotten the hang of how to usean AutoRecover file. Instead of renaming the recovered version, they’d double click the original version and wonder what happened to their changes and why they weren’t saved; or they’d edit the recovered version without renaming it and then wonder why audio wasn’t linked, or why they suddenly had new, separate global tables or job dictionaries. In Version 14, it’ll be easier to work with AutoRecover files. If a user double clicks the original version instead of the recovered file, Case CATalyst will take care of renaming the recovered fileto link it with all of the original subfiles and will save the original file to a new name.   Print Watermark – Want a watermark (such as DRAFT or REALTIME UNEDITED) but don’ want to have to create or obtain an image file and then import that image into a layout? No problem –in Version 14, you have a Print Watermark option that lets you type text, manipulate the size, orientation on the page andselect a shade.  Export to PTX – Have clients requesting PTX format files? Now you can export from Case CATalyst to PTX!  Export to PTF –Have clients requesting PTF format files? Now you can export from Case CATalyst to PTF!
