  1. Just upgraded to High Sierra and, as expected, Express Scribe took umbrage to that. Many areas of the app are now using the "Curlz MT" font: http://prntscr.com/h9buj5 http://prntscr.com/h9bupl http://prntscr.com/h9busm http://prntscr.com/h9buvv http://prntscr.com/h9buyf Let me guess, ES uses fonts that aren't standard on a Mac?
  2. inserting timestamps

    That doesn't work. After reading finding out that some Windows users were also lacking the hot keys and resolving the issue through installation, I ended up trashing my copy of ES, redownloading, reinstalling, and reregistering. That did the trick. I now have the hotkeys and was able to set up CMD-E to copy the timestamp and then use CMD-V to paste it. Thanks for your reply. It's appalling how much I pay for this software that doesn't come with free customer support. Rae
  3. inserting timestamps

    Looks like the Windows users have a way to create a hot key to easily enter time stamps. Is there a way to do this with the Mac version beyond going to Notes -- copy to clipboard -- time, and then pressing command-T in Word, which is so comically inefficient as to be useless? I've got a lot of clients now who want timestamps every 30 seconds and it takes forever to manually type them in. Thanks, Rae
  4. anyone found an alternative to ES?

    I'm looking for a Mac transcription app that has the following features: -can handle video files while showing the videos (so that rules out F5) -can be used with an Infinity foot pedal -enables you to enter deadlines and other information for sorting You might be thinking that Express Scribe has all these features, but it can't handle videos of any significant size without crashing. I work with 1GB video files and I can't wait half an hour for ES to decide if it's going to load the file or just crash my entire system. Surely there's an alternative transcription app out there that works and is of professional quality? I'll pay just about anything at this point seeing as I'm losing money every day I have to use ES.

  5. How do you enter a Deadline?

    The fact that the client, priority, and deadline columns are useless bugs me to no end, but here's a workaround if you don't normally use the Notes column: type the deadline in the notes column and then sort that way! You can even put your deadline on the first line of the notes and then write your other notes below. I type the notes in the following format: Month/Day/Year 00:00 Client Name This sorts them in order of priority by not only date but also time due on the same day. I use a 24 hour clock to make sure that 8:00 a.m. doesn't get sorted as 8:00 p.m. (If you're tired of staring at the useless columns, right click on the header columns. They will pop up with the displayed columns showing a checkmark next to them. Click on each colum that you DON'T want to use. I just display name, duration, and the notes.) Rae
  6. Any way to edit "deadline" column?

    The fact that the client, priority, and deadline columns are useless bugs me to no end, but here's a workaround if you don't normally use the Notes column: type the deadline in the notes column and then sort that way! You can even put your deadline on the first line of the notes and then write your other notes below.
