Copy and Paste....

I have a few of my own standards in MS Word that I will copy and paste into Meditech, but I find the tabs do not translate over to Meditech. Do you have this problem as well? It is aggravating because I have to fix these when I go back to the Meditech screen

thanks for the copy and paste--sm
but latest and related are not the same thing. all I am seeing are posts that were placed after mine and nothing in relation to the original post questioning the company. sorry again.
copy/paste is against the rules.. we were
from the onset to NEVER EVER copy and paste. If you are doing this you should stop it soon before they figure it out and you get in trouble.
If I had to copy & paste my IM to an email...

...because I needed a conversation documented, I would do it.  I would find a way.  Even if I had to get a disposable camera and take a couple of darn pictures of the computer with the IM on it.  LOL!  

By the way, what happens if you doin't respond to the IM?  Are you an employee with the co?  No co. would make me do IM, but that's me.  What is the co. so concerned about that they don't want something documented in email???

Should I attach or copy and paste
the questionnaire and resume into an email when sending them back to Webmedx? No preference was given.
could you quickly copy and paste your document into another? then
you could just keep adding on the lines in each document to your own master document for the day. Then you would have a line count for the day. I bet you could write a macro to do this.
but that still takes time to copy/paste

This company prob charges their client the same rate for the entire report; everyone is feeling the crunch!  So, let's hit the MT's pocket; I'd pass on companies like that.

Any company will leave you alone if you do your work, so that's not a plus!  

Auto correct

Is there a way to keep the first letter becoming a capital when using an Expander after an abbreviation with a period?

Example:  1 tablet p.o. (and then when type bidx, expands to Twice a day, with a capital T because of period after the o.).  It seems I spend quite a bit of time fixing this type of thing.

Thanks for you help!

I googled labor board. Copy/paste in address bar
May have to key in either your state or company state not sure which or maybe both.

They use a built-in expander like Auto Correct
No special software. Just copy and paste the report you typed to Microsoft Word on your
computer. Under the Tools menu, select Word Count. Characters are listed with or without spaces. Take the total of either and divide by 65 to get your line count. Then match that with what your company is giving you for a line count.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, then you can download a free trial of Abacus line counting software from the internet.
changing docQscribe word expander to auto-correct

I have been hired at a company that uses Word auto-correct.  I have thousands of expansions in DocQScribe aco.user file.  I have found the file in my computer and brought it up on notepad.  Anybody able to have this imported to auto-correct?  I called the company support and they said it is doubful.  This may be a deal killer as it would take hundreds of hours to start from scratch.  Thanks for your time.

Similar to DocQScribe, expansions go in auto-correct, horrible spell-check. nm
Platform very easy and quick - easy to get used to. :)
actually perfect copy is correct.
ExText is integrated with Word. Auto correct is a part of Word.
ExText is a Word based platform. When the page opens for you to type the document it will be just like you are typing in MS Word.
I'm a quick study but it was immediate. Its so easy.
Can Wordperfect quick correct can be imported to

I'm stuck, big time. I have tons of entries on my quick correct on Wordperfect 12, but I have to switch to Word 2007. Is there a way to import them from Wordperfect to Word 2007?

I would be forever grateful if someone can help me figure this out ;)

Thanks so much!

Dictaphone ExText is quick and easy.
Is this for acute care?
Wilma reincarnated. Cut and paste same response. Cut and paste. nm
Neither. You can copy into Word but cannot copy back into Emdat.


Quick, the gene pool need a quick Clorox!
Could I please get a quick reply to quick hiring???....sm
I cannot find anything here or in archives about Integrity Transcription Service LLC; I was rapidly recruited and offered employment w/o testing, and wonder if there are any MTs here who work/have worked there?  Could you please share here or at my e-mail?  Soooo much appreciated, trying to weed things out!
First of all, the auto workers SM

have been protected from the realities of the world for decades now.  I have contact with them daily-you should hear them cry and complain over having to pay $4 a pay period to cover their family's health insurance.  Co-pay for a Rx went up from $2 to $5?  Oh, the complaining about what a raw deal they get.

These people all have cottages to summer in, multiple vehicles for business, leisure and sports and the rest of us have slaved.  No company EVER promised to take care of its employees for life.  We MTs have known that for years and now these people also can find this out.

Notalways, Auto Hot Key sounds like something
I really should be using. I'm still looking stuff up dinosaur style. I just googled that term but got more than I wanted. Do you have a program you purchased, or is it some sort of free download? Do you combine a keyboard with additional function keys with it? Thanks.

BTW, I'm Just Saying, Expanders do help eliminate some of the proofreading for mistakes--yet another way they contribute to speed ($$). The words, phrases, sentences, and paragraphs your Expander rolls out are exactly as you stored them. No need to scrutinize them for typos.

Regarding how many are doing okay, different boards do have their own group personalities. Many people just aren't relating to the serious problems many come here to share and discuss with others in the same boat, so even if they drop in now and then they keep moving.
Make an auto-response for their emails.."I DON'T WORK HERE!" nm
Anyone know of a company, easy clinic work, easy Word format, dependable pay? Help!
Say "Get Over It" to the auto workers and their families who are getting pink slips. sm

How do you think you would feel if you spent  most of your adult life working for one of these companies promising you security if you stayed with them.

I love it. It is fast, easy to learn and easy to use.

Did anyone ever tell you why no cut/paste? I always want to know why. sm
But I'm not going to be able to continue working for them, since they just don't have enough work during the time I have available, so it won't be a problem. 
I am trying to paste...

My resume in the Transtech application form.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do that? 




Cut & Paste why?
I have been curious about this for a while.  Why do companies need us to cut and paste our resumes into an email rather than attaching them.  9 out of 10 companies on MTjobs request this and go so far as to say they will DELETE emails with attachments.  Anyone know or have a guess?
Info is obviously a cut and paste.
Anyone could do it. Why would OSi stoop so low?
going to cut and paste your post
because everything you have said is so very, very true.  I don't have 31 years of experience - but I do have 25 years of transcription/secretarial experience and 12 years of MT - so I have a little bit of an idea what I am doing - and you are so right - if you cannot at least bring in $100 a day - why bother?  I am at that point too.  I am doing SR for 4.5 cpl now - but have something else in the works - it is my very last straw.... so not giving up quite yet.  I am so very, very sorry for what you have gone through - know you are not alone - not sure what can be done - but you are not the only one in this boat!!
I posted a cut and paste of what sm
they sent me and it clearly states that you are hired as an SC and then are offered SE status.  That's pretty clear.  My question is why would they hire you as SC status, tell you when to work and then offer you SE status?  Pretty fishy.  I understand you don't like the comment I made about being pimped out but I don't know what else to call it when folks accept this practice of working as an SC being told what and when, paying double taxes and putting up with this stuff.  your just handing your hard-earned money over!
I use Meditech and don't cut and paste
and it's fine for me.....we use Word inside Meditech so I have all my macros and stuff.
resume cut/paste
This might help you out :)
Can't bring up the article - could you cut and paste - sm
it so that we could read it??
When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
Just paste it and let it go. They're looking for content, not format, when ....sm
...the resume is sent via a web contact form. If you are a good MT with good qualifications, they won't care how it's set up, but do make sure words are spelled correctly. That's a huge bugaboo when I read resumes.
Highlight all the text you want to paste and right click
your mouse.   You should get a list of options, one of which is copy.  Select copy.  Go to the page you want to paste your resume and right click your mouse again.  Again you will have options, one of which should be paste.  Click paste and there is it.    If you right click the second time and you don't get paste, go back through the above steps again and copy again and then try paste.  
Cut & paste. They expected us to type in Word and
TSI now SoftMed was supposed to be atrocious with their DOS software and cut-and-paste work. Any
you get a form to put in your name, email, and paste your resume. MTSpot sends it to the recipient
You will not be able to copy those from a MQ
computer. Believe me, I tried EVERYTHING! My husband is a computer whiz and said they have some kind of lock on their system that you cannot copy or transfer to another computer, sorry, but like me, you'll just have to redo your expander, I know it's crap, but you'll make yourself crazy trying to copy it, cause it just won't happen.
copy typing
What exactly is copy typing? Just curious. Thanks
Did you ask for a copy of the test?
Just curious.
Look at the copy of the fraudulent
resignations email that you received:

WHAT is written in From:......?

WHAT is written in
TO:..... ?

Doesn't this give you a clue?

Can't you use this as evidence that it is a fraudulent email, NOT sent by you???
copy and past into address bar. nm
Very interesting. I am going to copy this and save it. nm
I'd ask to see copy of occup or county...nm
