You can save the SH file in a text file and import to IT that way. sm
You may have to do some cleanup in the SH text file, but it sure would be faster than re-entering them all manually.
Just open glo file in Word, highlight all, then change case and save back
to glo file. Use the Alt key trick to highlight just the column of words, then Shift + F3 to toggle through the change case commands. First save your glossary under a different name so you also keep the original.

I did try to save the file first but it wouldn't even let me save it.
Instant Text will pull in whatever font you are using
in your actual document. No worries about types or sizes. You can also insert commands to bold, etc. within your entries, which makes it nice if one account wants bold/cap headings and one doesn't. I work for different hospitals and I have a separate glossary with each hospital name that I use for stuff that is unique to each hospital, i.e. facilities, doctor names, routines and normals by dictator. My MAIN glossary I keep as #1 and I add regular words, phrases, etc., that I would use regardless of hospital. Then I use the *include* feature to pull in the glossary of the hospital I am working on at the time. I love this product. Will never use another Expander again and won't have to, since it works with any windows-based application. I have carried it with me to 3 companies so far, each with a different platform, and I don't have to learn a new expansion program, worry about their IT depts. trying to convert my old expansions, etc. etc. etc.

Download Express Scribe (free player) and see if you can pull the voice file into it. nm
no problem... just go to File and Save As
then from the drop-down box chose the Word .doc format to save your file as.  You can also program one of your F keys or a control or alt key to do this for you, using the Tools --- Settings --- Customize --- Keyboard
You need to open it first, then click on File, then Save As,
Right click the voice file and save it to your computer.

Rename your normal.dot file to something else then restart Word. It will create a new file.
Help..I lost my word file. How can I retreive a file that has been changed? sm

I was working on a large file and had saved it in Word. I then went back to work on the file and hit a key that made the page go blank.  When I went to close the document it asked me to save any changes on the document. I answered yes, and now when I click on that document it is all blank! Shouldnt the previous info saved be there, even if the current stuff is not? Please help me!! Thank you

Does Dictatphone Ex-Text have automatic save as you are typing?


...do an incorrect word or even pull up something already created...nm
It's a stand alone program and doesn't pull up within Word itself. nm
I use Word 2003 and on the track changes toolbar there is a while pull-down box on the left.
This gives you your final report without the marks.

You should have no problem..just save your document in Word. A lot of our MTs use WP 10 (sm)
and as long as they save it as a Word document it pulls up fine in Word for the client.
How To Save Word Autocorrect Entries
Would someone kindly tell me how to save your Word 2003 autocorrect entries?  I need to do a complete reinstall of Word?  Thank you very much !
If it's in Word, just right click it and save it. If another format, copy
You have to answer yes to the message to save Normal when you quit Word

You can't just open the attachment. You need to save it to a file and then open SM
your wave player and load it. 
If it is Shorthand, save the SPF file to a disk, then if you buy Shorthand yourself....
you can just drop the SPF file into it. That is not dishonest since you are the one who put the macros in. I am sure is it is another Expander there is a way to save the macro file and then drop it in the expander you buy on your own.
Thanks XXX. I found a "Microsoft Works Word Processor". You say I save those as files?

I do have a CD drive so if I can buy WORD like you mention, I can load it.

Do you think it would be beneficial in the long run to invest in WORD (maybe buy it at BEST BUY or something) and load it on my computer?  I am going to be doing lots of work, so better to use as good a program as I can as far as being able to SAVE stuff - There will be lots of opportunities for macros (or saving paragraphs, etc).  Whatever the term is these days to mean:  saving lots of words, LOL.



Was it a Word file?
It's a real pain, but if you do a wild card search (*.doc) you might be able to find it. Requires sifting through a lot if irrelevant stuff, but if it works...hey. 
Read the Word help file.
Your auto correct file has an .acl file extension. Your auto text are connected to the template you use (probably normal) but you'll have to transfer that template to the new computer as well in order for those entries to be retained.
Were is *acl file in Word 2000? NM
Where is *acl file in Word 2000? TX
Word lists more than one .acl file so you want to be...
sure you find the correct one for your version of Word. Each version names that file differently. There are also different language .acl files.
Need some help sending a Word file by e-mail...

We are selling our house and I am trying to send flyers via e-mail...however, I saved the file in Word (2 pictures and basic information, not very big) but it is too big to send via e-mail...is there any other way to save this so I can send the information via e-mail...I tried copying and pasting the document directly into e-mail but the pictures then do not show up..

I usually am able to figure out most things on the computer but I am getting frustrated with this...any help is appreciated...



I believe you would need to make changes to the normal.dot file in Word.

There are two ways to do it.  You can open up your existing normal.dot file and change your view to 200% and then save it.  Or you can create a whole new normal.dot file with the settings you want, but if you do it this way, you have to find and delete the original normal.dot file.

Either way, every new document should be magnified to 200% and in whatever font you set the default as.

Are you looking for "landscape?" In word it is under file-page setup--nm
Word has a wonderful help file. It will tell you how to do lots of things.
PLEASE HELP!! Just accidentally deleted 1 hour file in Word...sm
It wasn't one I was currently working on.  Is there a way to recover it??
The most explicit directions can be found in the Word Help file.
You can print out the directions and follow them step-by-step. It can also explain auto text to you, just type that in the search box.
MS Word Auto Text

I had inputed a bunch of my own "text expantion" into MS Word Auto Text and went in to work today and they are all gone.  It is not the first time this has happened, and then you have to go and input back everything, which is a pain.

Has anyone else experienced this or know why it happens??

MS Word....anyone know how to get the text to appear bigger
Help if you can! Thanks!
How do you copy your SH file to text - do you copy each dictionary separately? nm

Sometimes if I right clink on the word file in the status bar, it will "unfreeze" it. Be caref
Does anyone know how to make the text larger in Word?? TIA
larger text in Word - start by
to preview and select what suits you best. Toolbar should be showing at top of screen, pull down where is says what font type is in there. Otherwise, you can to either go to Tools to select the "formatting" toolbar, or go to View, then Font. Since my old eyes are going, I also choose the option to increase my page view to 150% (also on the toolbar at the top of your screen displaying some kind of number) by dropping down the menu (use the arrow next to it) and select the % that suits you best. Hope this helps.
Making text larger in Word
Ctrl+A to select all text, choose font size from format menu. Also make sure view is at 100%.

How could a dictionary/text or word expander..sm
compromise patient confidentiality?  Just another ploy by MTSOs for control.  Some of them think we are so dumb they would claim proprietary ownership to our underwear if they could get away with it.
