Flashtype users?

Posted By: tia on 2005-12-16

I recently downloaded Flashtype expander.  I like the set up of being able to put in what I want but I am having trouble with capitalization.  I work in Meditech and the CAPS status sometimes changes for no reason.  This program is also suppose to print in all CAPS if wanted but this does not happen either except only occasionally.  It also does not capitalize the word at the beginning of a sentence if it is typed so such as Copd, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  It does all lower case.  Is there something I can do or is just a program error or is it just using it with certain programs such as Meditech?

Is there a way to print out a list of the shortcuts you have installed in the FlashType program?  If there is, I can figure it out.  Please  help!
Does anyone have any info on Flashtype? I have the software but no instructions. If anyone has any info on it, I would appreciate it.

Thank you!
I use flashtype and it works great for me.
In looking over all the things that FlashType does, it appears that MS Word's auto-text and word expansion program does the same thing.  The only thing different that I can see that FlashType does is enables you to create special templates that can be inserted but you could also do this in MS Word with a macro.  Am I way off base here?
Shorthand vs FlashType

I downloaded the Shorthand Expander trial for 30 days.  I like it a lot and am thinking seriously about buying it, but now I wonder about FlashType.  Is it really just like Shorthand?  (if so, I could save $30 with FlashType).  Can I convert my Autocorrect terms to FlashType like I can in Shorthand?  I tried to download FlashType several times to try it out, but I can't open it (something about "proper license not found." 

I have about 20 days left on my Shorthand trial, so I'd appreciate your opinions about both programs.  Thanks!   

Question about FlashType
Can you download your existing word list from Shortcut into FlashType?

If so how do you like it? 
Flashtype vs shorthand
I downloaded the trial of ShortHand and have looked at flashtype and saw that it was cheaper, but wondered how they compared to each other.  Anybody use Shorthand and Flashtype and like one over the other.
Question re Flashtype
I just had my hard drive work on and for some reason they added Flashtype. What exactly is this for? TIA
I use Flashtype too. I think it's like $60 and works for me

Flashtype feedback
I didn't see any information on converting my current list of Expanders (for Shorthand) to Flashtype. As I have close to 3000 entries, I'm afraid there's no way I'm going to spend the time to copy those individually and so uninstalled the trial.

Other than that, the template variables looked promising.
Isn't this MTStars FlashType under a different name?
You can demo MTStars FlashType and if you want to buy it, it is only $59.95

I just bought Flashtype expander and I want to


I have a new computer!  Yea!.  Now I need to get all my Flashtype information to it.  What do I need to do?  Do I need to purchase another program for this computer and if so how do I get my stored information from the other computer?  I can't imagine that I would have to retype all my information again.



try FlashType offered on this site--sm

Neither. I just know these people and saw the post about FlashType

Flashtype isn't working. What am I doing wrong? sm
I downloaded the demo version of flashtype, added some basics into a new dictionary, and opened my MS word 2003.  It's not working.  Is there something I'm doing wrong?  A step I missed somehow? 
What are the pros/cons of FlashType, IT, Shorthand
Does Flashtype work in all Meditech versions?
There is no guarantee that FlashType will work in Meditech although
it works in most Windows environments.  It does work in many platforms and all stand alone word processors, email programs, instant messengers.
MTStars FlashType has a free demo and if you like it, it is
about half of the cost of other word Expanders out there.  See the link below.

Any green tea users out there?

I have tried green tea on 2 separate occasions and both times experienced what appears to be bloody stools with it.  As soon as I stop the intake of the tea, the blood goes away.  I really like the tea as it does a good job of promoting energy and weight loss, but I cannot understand why it causes this reaction.  Would anyone have any idea why this happens?  Is there another natural energy booster I can try?  Thanks for any and all help. 

It is MQ-wide for DQS users?
Well, I sure would hope it would be for SE's too, as some of us also use DQS.  I havent heard anything, nor gotten a letter or check..Im wondering is it MQ-wide?  All of MQ that uses DQS?  Or could it be just certain regional offices did not have the count of lines set up right?
TransNet users
1.  Have long have you been using TransNet?  Is it hard to learn?


2.  Does it work with Word 2003?


3.  Do you d/l the files through a modem or through a cable or DSL line?


4.  If you have a cable or DSL line ... how long would it take for you to download, say, all of the Alta Bates or Sequoia reports. I ask about those only because I can translate that into lines in my head. IOW, "it takes 1 hour to d/l a full day of Alta Bates." This way I could figure out where things would stand on one of the accounts I work on.


5.  Would you rather use TransNet or C-phone? Why (whatever your choice is) <-- this is the critical question, so feel free to go into detail


6.  What happens if you've download a batch of files and your hard drive crashes? Are those files gone forever or are the "originals" still on the master system?

Just wanting to know if any IT users

would care to share tips on getting started with Instant Text, especially the best way to go about customizing the glossaries . . . just received my IT and I'm anxious to get going, but it does seem that there is a learning curve and takes some getting used to.


Thanks to all!

For DSL users..... is it possible to use a C-phon
and still have your home phone hooked up and running for calls?  I remember trying to get a fax machine to work about a year ago and I ended up getting a new phone line for that because it ended up being too much trouble and SBC was of no help.  Any suggestions?
DocQscribe users sm

Does anyone work for more than 1 company that uses DocQscribe.  I work for 1 company with DocQScribe and just got a part-time job at another company that uses DocQscribe.  Is there any way to use DocQscribe for 2 companies on 1 computer?


? for TransNet users
What do you use to listen to the dictation, and where do you plug it in?
