How do they calculate the 7 hours for deposition time?  If a deposition starts at 10:00 and ends at 5:00 with lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 would that be considered 6 hours?  What about breaks throughout the day?  Are they considered deposition time or not?  Had a client ask and I told him I honestly didn't know.  Any input would be appreciated.

No.  It's actual "on-record" time.  Breaks do not count.  Seven hours on record.  Usually get out about 6:30 p.m.

Trust me, I do enough of them, I should know.

What Kelli said.

The attorneys used to ask me to keep time; I despised that. Thank goodness someone -- on here, I think -- informed me that Eclipse actually has a timekeeper. What a convenient, useful gift!!!

Quyen, you need to tell me how to use the timer through Eclipse.  I don't know how to do that.  I use the stopwatch through my iPhone, but you need to remember to stop/start.

Go to "Tools" on the menu bar, "Timekeeper," "Next," "Current Document," "Next." Done. :)

So what does it do?  Is there a box that comes up and lets you know the time you've been writing?

It has most of the relevant paragraphs already chosen. You could add/pick more. These paragraph styles are used to determined total time on the record.
