Punctuation question/opinion

Does anyone hyphenate Bates stamp in these instances:

1. Bates stamp number (i.e., Q. Please look at the Bates stamp number at the bottom of the page.)
2. Bates stamped document (i.e. Q. We were provided this Bates stamped document from your attorney.)
3. Bates stamping (i.e.: When you were doing the Bates stamping, did you happen to notice...
4. Bates stamped (For the record, I have a document that is not Bates stamped, as the others are.)

Naola, I just read the answer to your CR-Net scopist color request. I meant to check on that myself yesterday, but never got to it. Never got to it along with many other items on my list!

I have an editing macro I created a few months ago that will scan directly to any edit made by a scopist so you don't have to page down and look for a color change. It is a two-step macro, but once you do the first two steps, you just have to Ctrl l to find the next. If you email me at, I'll attach it for you. If you want it, that is!

Would you mind sending me a sample invoice for your clients. I would like to start getting my own clients, and I have no idea what an invoice would look like. I do send my own invoices to my agency for myself.
I would really appreciate it.
Also, do you think it is too soon to get my own clients? I have only been reporting for six months.
Thank you,

There is someone selling a LS right now for $2,200. Would I be better off buying a used one?
Also, have you had any issues with lawyers using your digital recorder or mic to record. I have heard of some reporters who have.
Can I set my keys on the LS for a harder touch?

You have given me a great deal of information. Thank you so much. You are absolutely correct. I would have to give myself time to learn on the Mira or the LS, either way, I have to get use to a new writer. I also have a very bad habit of pounding on my student writer, which is causing me pain. I know for sure since the LS has such a light touch it will take me quite some time to get use to it, but you can adjust each key, correct?
As you have mentioned, the LS has no audio, no paper, no screen , -- I hook up to my laptop so that is not an issue for me -- and only two backups, but I just love the fact you are not having any pain in your hands. I think it might be worth the 15% restocking fee if I don't like it.
Also, do you have a mic hooked up to your laptop, since the LS does not have audio sync?

Thank you Naola.

Hi Naola,

I recently graduated from Long Island business Institute for Court Reporting, and I am really stuck on which professional writer to get. I have narrowed it down to the LS or the Mira. I need to make a decision right away. I have been on forums for months trying to learn all I can about the LS. You seem to really like it. How long did it take for you to get use to it? Are all the kinks out of the latest version? I just don't need any frustrations right now having just graduated.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

It sounds like you have no reason to be scared off, Naola. You are one of the few who are happy right now. I just wanted to make sure I posted you to let you know a bad update might be part of a lot of people's problems.

That's why when I get my software working without any glitches I refuse to load a new update for years at a time. Same theory. If it ain't broke, I don't want it fixed. :)

I really want this writer to work. I just absolutely love the touch.
