I'm trying to learn more about the programming tab and all the fun, not-so-self-explanatory stuff in there.

In the phonetics table some things have a | and some don't when there's more than one possible ending. Examples:
-PBT=nt|nt,n't
-PBLGS=dges,ges

Why is that?
Marla, that was covered in a recent webinar, the second part of which I'll be watching soon. I'll report back what I learn about it. I know it was touched up on in part 1, but I can't remember it very well. I think it had something to do with defaulting to the left of the pipe -- but I don't really remember.

Stay tuned!
Ooh, goody! Yes, please do share with the class, Brenda. Thanks!

I'm dying to know what "Auto-brief ineligible words" are and what on earth I should put in there. I take it that's different from putting a minus sign in front of stroke combinations you'd never use in the "Auto-brief steno theory," but I'm not sure.

Sure would've been nice if they would have updated the help file when they updated the programming tab. If you hit help when in the programming tab, the new items aren't listed.
Oh, those I can tell you now! You pretty well hit on them in the other thread, using the - and combos to say what you don't want or + for what you do want. ineligilbe words are mostly defined already. They're small words mostly.

The metadix is the one I want to get a glimmer of knowledge about!
So in the "ineligible words" section, I'd put things like:
-a
-of
-have
-the

Right?
aren't there already words in there? There should be. There is in mine. You don't need - because it already means that those should be excluded. There's a long list already in mine that I didn't put in. I think they came from the EnglishCommon file.

Looking through mine quickly, I see some that I'd like to take out and have available for briefing.

The - and + is for the AB Steno Theory.
Mine's all empty. Could you copy and paste your list here so I have something to start with? That'd be awesome, Brenda. Thanks!

I've never really looked at this before, but I see things I want to take out. One of these days, I'll take the time to do so!
Wow, what a list! When you figure out what you want to take out, let me know so I can decide if I want them in or not.

Thanks, Brenda!
Marla, the defaults for those entries are located in the default Eclipse.set file under the Edit options. First back up your settings or at least note what you have selected on the Edit tab. Open user settings, import Settings and then browse to the EclipseNT folder and select the Eclipse.set file. Select None to uncheck everything and then click on Editing Options and that will update the followng:

• Editing options — The settings in the “Editing” and “Globaling” area of the Edit tab, and the “By” format settings. Also included here:
o The status of the various alert messages that have the “don't show this message again” checkbox
o The dictionaries set up under User 1 through User 8 in the User settings | User | Dictionaries.. settings (Note that any dictionaries left blank will be ignored when the settings are imported into the other user, so any existing dictionaries in unused slots will be preserved)
o The regular expression filters for steno and text
o The Typeover tracking
o The Spelling exceptions
o The Common words
If you have never imported the matadictionary you may want to do that also.
Dave, Will this overwrite any editing macros that we have created?
