Christina and Lisa, one more thing on PDF.

If you use the Batch icon at the bottom, or Quick keys, you can set it to print condensed, word index, and transcript all at once in PDF.  This might be quicker in some instance.

I am a scopist with 44 years of legal experience, and I have been scoping for 18 years.  I have just upgraded to ProCAT 12, the latest version.  I am very excited about the new version, and I am ready to scope for ProCAT reporters.  I scope all transcripts with full audio, no spot checking.  I also read steno notes so I can make accurate dictionary entries for updating your dictionaries.  My website is, and I am available for all types of transcripts, trials, hearings, depositions, and realtime online scoping using the new features.

Thanks Christina!

After that whole long answer, I forgot to add that the time stamps will copy over with everything.  So no worries about it matching up.

Don't worry about splitting the transcript up and the time stamps.  I just scope the whole thing, and then after my proofer does her thing and it's complete, I split the transcript, which means I usually just copy the section that is confidential and copy it into a new transcript.  Then I copy and paste the non-confidential portions into another new transcript.  I add the covers to both etc.  That way the original transcript is still preserved as is.  Maybe others do it differently, but I feel more comfortable having the original all together saved and then splitting up the others for the finals.  You could also do an excerpt, which I've never done, but you can highlight the section and then hit F-4 which allows you to name and save it in a new file.  The benefit to this is that it takes the steno and audio with it.  I have another video this Friday.  I might try that this time.

I took a videotaped depo in which the attorney designated a portion of it confidential. Any ideas how to split up the transcript and have the time stamps match up?

Thanks for replying so quickly. I really appreciate it.

With your transcript open in the Winner editor, there are icons (mine are at the bottom of my screen) one looks like a stack of paper and says ASCII.  When you click on that an Export Files screen comes up where you can choose where to export it to.  At the bottom you can put in a file name, and then under Save as Type, you can hit the down arrow to choose .PDF.  This is obviously where you can convert to ASCII as well.  Hit Save, and you have your PDF.  For the condensed, there is an icon at the bottom that looks like a a paper that says SQUISH.  Click on that for your condensed and there is a button on the left that lets you print to PDF as well.  So there's two ways for the PDF.  And also two ways to get to these functions:  from File at the stop of the bar or from the icons at the bottom.

File, print as condensed, and then when the box comes up for printing, save it as a pdf (there's a small box at the left-hand bottom for it).  I'm using version 12.

Does anyone know how to convert a regular transcript to PDF and also condensed?
