Email Address Macros

via Caryl.

Below are the steps for two macros, E-mail 2 words – RT and E-mail 3 words – RT.  To use either of  these macros, you would write the first words of the email address, such as John Smith. You would then write the @ sign, defined in your dictionary as {^@^}, and then the rest of the email address, such as gmail.com.

The number in the macro name refers to the number of words before the @. You would use the  E-mail 2 words – RT macro for John Smith @gmail.com. You would use the E-mail 3 words – RT macro for John and Sue @gmail.com. You can use the pattern below to create additional macros, perhaps for 1 word, 4 words, 5 words, etc. Adjust the number of “Word left” command steps in the macro to be the same as the number of words before the @ sign.

One caveat which is you need to execute the macro while in the paragraph that the @ sign appears, meaning you can’t go down a few Q’s & A’s and then do the macro. Still working on that. If someone can figure out how to have that work. please let me know.

[ ] symbolizes a space – use spacebar

Attorney Requests PTX File

If an attorney asks for an eTranscript (.ptx file), first ask him/her if a .txt file would suffice, and if he/she indicates they want the .ptx, tell them it will be an extra $20 charge for the conversion. Then go to http://smartdeps.com to convert the file – they will charge me $20.
