I don't want to turn this into a sales pitch, however, if any of you are thinking about a new writer, now might be the time.  ProCAT is offering $1200 off with a trade-in of any old writer.  So the Impression is now $4095 and it includes bluetooth and wide keys, if needed.

Caryn, that is controlled by your writer.  ProCAT writers allow you to suspend and reconnect without a problem.  Same with our new Impression writer.  The bluetooth will even go into an automatic hold if you go outside the distance of bluetooth.  You might want to pose this question to any Diamante users.

Thanks, Cathy re the dictionary backup. I got it figured out. I really appreciate your response though.

I'm on the latest version of ProCat -- 12.0.38.  I'm using a Diamante writer.  Need help with realtime.  In the middle of trial, hooked up to realtime, if I have to unhook my writer from my computer to go to sidebar, I can't come back and plug the writer into the computer and have the realtime pick up from where I left off.  I have to close the file, turn off the writer and start a new file.  With my old Stylus machine I could just unplug the writer, do what I had to do, come back, plug it back in and everything worked fine.  I can suspend realtime with a keyboard command on my writer, but when I need to restart it by giving it the same command, it won't restart.  Is anyone else having this problem?

Hey, Lisa.  I would go to archive wizard.  On the second screen, select backup personal dictionary.  Then follow the prompts.  You can then at the end set it to save to your desktop, jump drive (by using browse button), or burn to CD-write folder.

If you are getting an error message, I need to know how you are doing it and what the message says.

Silly question - I'm not sure I'm doing it right. What's the best way to make a backup copy of my dictionary?

Cathy, great to know.  Thanks!! :)

If anyone needs help or has questions regarding the Winner software or Impression writer, please feel free to ask your questions here. I will be monitoring this area and will respond to any questions you have each day in the morning. 

I hope all you ProCAT users will join me here.

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.
