  • Can credit lists in Word be transferred to Inscriber

    I have just done a Dance Show and have to roll credits for every song/dance, with about 20-30 different names for each dance. Is there a way I can copy & paste from a Word document into Inscriber. Or how would I go about saving myself typing all the names in, one at a time. There are about 75 different dances. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ted

    I like to strip all the (hidden) junk that often goes along with Word by using Notepad...

    Select/Copy from Word
    Paste in Notepad
    Select All/Copy from Notepad
    Paste in TMP (usually requires trial & error to get it right)

      I'm with Rusty - I've become very adept at using Notepad as a staging area.

        If you're in a hurry and have tons to do TextCleanup (or another) is a very useful tool!

            TM Pro has a limit of how much text you can import, I forgot what the limit, but you will soon know when you import the lot in one hit

            instead of copy paste, use import from text file (notepad)

            so split your text into 2 or 3 notepad files

            add the first inscriber and with import from notepad1 after selecting roll, format as you need and save

            add another inscriber and import notepad2 after selecting roll, format as you need and save

            etc etc

            then create 2 or 3 title tracks and overlap the titles until you get a continuous roll

              Another limiting feature of TM Pro is that it wont import or display Japanese text/characters/Kanji.

              Whereas Quicktitler does not have this problem.

              Is there a workaround for this ?

                I have the same problem, and I haven't found a workaround. Let's face it TM Pro has too many limiting features in this day and age!

                  I import 60 names with blank paragraphs between each name with no problem. The list is created in Word and saved as a .txt file. Works like a charm in TM Pro.

                    also, when you format text, be sure that no dotted page divide line touches any text otherwise that line of text will be distorted during the roll, this is a very old bug

                      Credit Lists in Word be transferred to a roll in Inscriber

                      Thank you so much for all your suggestions. Hopefully I can get it to work. I'm receiving all the names in a Word document (no choice) and then trying to work with them in TM Pro.
