How To Create an RTF Dictionary in Eclipse…

… to load onto a Diamante

In Eclipse you just need to create an RTF of your dictionary.

Open DIX             F9,  ENTER

Click File             Press Alt *pause* F    (Click File Menu on the upper left)

Choose Export     Press E

Choose RTF         Press 2, ENTER

Select Desktop     Shift tab x 3, DOWN, (probably easier to just click on the DESKTOP)

Save                     ENTER.

That is all you do in Total Eclipse.  At this point you need to run RTF2Writer from Stenograph.  Please call Tech support for help with any of this.

Convert RTF/CRE Dictionaries

If you are not using Case CATalyst and want to load your dictionary onto the Diamante, it is necessary to
use the RTF/CRE to Writer Dictionary Conversion program. You must copy the Rtf2Writer.exe onto your
computer; export your dictionary to RTF/CRE format; and run the conversion.

When using the Rtf2Writer Dictionary Conversion program, only one personal dictionary can be selected
and loaded onto the Diamante. You can load up to seven job dictionaries.

The RTF/CRE to Writer Dictionary Conversion program for the Diamante is only available via USB cable.
You must have the Diamante USB driver installed on your computer to use the USB cable. See Install
the Diamante USB Drivers on page 18 if you need to load the Diamante USB driver.

To convert and load a RTF/CRE dictionary onto the Diamante:

1. Turn your computer On. Ensure that it is fully booted.
2. Insert the Diamante®/Wave™ Utilities and Tutorial CD into the CD-ROM/DVD drive on your
computer. If the AutoPlay dialog box displays, click Run autorun.exe.
3. The Diamante – Wave Utility dialog box displays. Click Diamante Utilities, User Guide and more.
4. The Diamante Utility dialog box displays. Click Utilities, Splash screen and more.
5. Open the Utilities folder.
6. Copy the Rtf2Writer.exe file to the Desktop on your computer. If you created a Stenograph Utility
folder on your Desktop, copy the utility to that folder.
7. Turn the Diamante On.
8. Locate the USB cable. Each end of the USB cable has a different connection plug. Connect the
appropriate end of the USB cable to the USB B (client) port on the back of the Diamante and a USB
port on the computer.
9. Double click the Rtf2Writer.exe icon on your Windows Desktop. The RTF/CRE to Writer Dictionary
Conversion dialog box displays.
10. Select USB. The Select Personal and Job Dictionaries dialog box displays.
11. In the Personal Dictionary field, use the Browse button to navigate to the location of the RTF/
CRE dictionary you are using for your Personal dictionary.
12. In the Job Dictionaries section, use the Browse button in each field to navigate to the location of
an RTF/CRE job dictionary you are converting.
13. Click OK. The dictionaries are transferred to the Diamante.
14. When the Diamante finishes loading the dictionary, it beeps and then reboots, displaying the
Opening menu.
15. On the RTF/CRE to Writer Dictionary Conversion dialog box, click Quit to close the Rtf2Writer

How I added Windows Professional 7 to Macbook Air

I did this back in 2013, and just wrote this for myself so please excuse any typos.  I have had no problems with using Windows on my Mac and it’s been the best laptop I have ever owned.

Installing Eclipse On MacAir 1-18-13:

Bridge Broadcaster and LAN

To run Bridge Mobile Local:

– A broadcast license is required

– Confirm all devices are connected to the same network.

– Reporter should be on a Home network, not a public network.

– Run CMLocal before starting RT.  (Eclipse may be open.)

– CMLocal will give you the IP address.  If you are running the app you do not need this addy.  (It is not the router address.)


If you will be outputting to Bridge Mobile using connection magic, it’s very simple.
Whether you are using the internet, or a local connection you will need to go to your user settings and to the realtime tab.
In the output formats box, add a format for Bridge/Mobile and choose Connection Magic as the output device. Apply edits and allow backspaces should already be checked.

Once you have the output set up, in order to stream your feed to Bridge Mobile on the internet, all you need to do is ensure that you are connected to the internet before you begin realtime.
When your job starts in Eclipse, you will be prompted to start the Bridge Mobile session. You can use the default session name, or type in your own name. Then type in a password, you will provide this password to your clients who are using Bridge Mobile. The password can be as simple or complex as you’d like and is case sensitive.
There is an option to make the session publicly visible and we recommend leaving that checked. This allows your clients to find the session name in a list of sessions. If publicly visible is not checked, your client will need to type in the session name.
After choosing or typing the session name, the client will then enter the password and hit the green check mark to connect.
If you are not going to be using the internet, you need to make sure that you install Connection Magic Local from the Bridge Mobile section of the downloads.
To stream to Bridge Mobile without internet, but over a router, you will connect to the router then open Connection Magic Local. Once it says server started, open Eclipse.
Wait for Eclipse to say “LAN” in the info bar or the status bar at the time.
Once you see that it has connected to the LAN server, you can start your job and the rest of the steps are the same on your end.

Ensure that whatever device your client is using is connected to the same router network.
If your client is using the app on an Apple or Android device or Windows/Mac versions, all they have to do is connect to your network and open the app and hit connect. The file should be listed for them there unless you chose not to have it publicly visible. They would insert the password and hit the green check to connect.

If they are using a web browser on any device, they will need to input the IP address from Connection Magic into their browser address bar to connect.

Once Bridge Mobile is open on any device, there is a Help icon that the client can press to see what all of the options do.

To use Connection Magic over a router please follow these steps:

Plug in your router and connect your realtime computer’s wifi to it.
Ensure that the devices your clients will be utilizing are also connected to the router’s network.
Start Connection Magic Local.
Once the server has started and given you an IP address (this should usually start with 192.168), you should then check your realtime out put format.
Go to Alt+U/Realtime Tab.
You should have an output that says Bridge/Lawbridge (server).
If you do not see this output, click Add.
Set the format to Bridge/Lawbridge/Teleview and set the Comm device to Connection Magic. Ensure that apply edits is checked, click Ok all the way out.
Once the output format has been added/verified, you can start Realtime.
Once realtime has begun, your clients can go open their web browser and input the IP address that Connection Magic Local provided.
If they are using the App, it should automatically fill in the IP address.
Once the Bridge Mobile page loads, click on the yellow lightning bolt icon.
Choose your file, enter the password and click/tap the green check mark.

At this point, the file should load and your clients can follow along with your realtime feed.

I wonder if it may be helpful to provide this information for each person on the CM team instead of just saying “it’s a server problem” or that people got a lot of Connect/disconnect messages or lot of red. Tell Jeremy about some of the other communications information he may need, such as:

·         What kind of network connected to. Possibilities:

o    4G or 3G (via hotspot)

o    LAN (the reporter most likely)

o    Home network, and specify whether it is:

§   DSL (phone company)

§   FiOS

§   Cable

·         Type of connection

o    Hotspot

o    WiFi

o    Ethernet (“hardwired”)

·         Also: Note for computers running Windows 10: Is the connection set to metered? If not there may be automatic Windows updates downloading in the background that can seriously impact bandwidth.
