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

Uncap/Lower Case at Beginning of Sentence in Eclipse

To force lower cap when editing, use the literal case command:

Ctrl+Shift+C, then the cap command.

{l1}eBay{l0} (That’s lower case L and 1; lower case L and 0)

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.

Troubleshooting Connecting/Disconnecting Realtime

Hat tip to Rebekah Lockwood – this is her advice:

My Diamante used to do that often. If I unplugged, wrote stuff, then plugged back in, there was a 50/50 chance it would dump. Support told me to do this, and it worked flawlessly. Takes a few extra seconds.

Before you unplug, hit Alt+Shift+E. Uncheck COM port. Unplug machine, go write in chambers or wherever. Come back. Plug in, check COM port. It should dump. It’s been many moons since I’ve had to do this, so I hope I haven’t forgotten any of the steps or gotten them out of order.
