The text file must be tab-delimited with no headers. You create and keep the files OUTSIDE of OnCue. OnCue does not save or store these objections.

First Column = Transcript Media ID – this is the transcript you created the designations with
Second Column = Start Page
Third Column = Start Line
Fourth Column = End Page
Fifth Column = End Line
Sixth Column = Objections
Seventh Column = the initial of the party who is doing the objecting


If you run into issues, check this list below:

  1. No headers

  2. No extra spacing in columns 1-5 and 7.

  3. No bizarre formatting – no “em dash”, no odd symbols in the objection column

  4. You must have all 4 page/line columns filled even if you are objecting to one line

  5. You must have a designation for an objection to appear in report




Creation of Report


Right-click on your designation list, select Reports -> Create Objection Report.

Select your columns under options. Designations first.

Now add an Objections Column and Browse the Objection Text file you already have created. You can change the objection text color.

Now you can add other columns or remove them. If there is no data, be sure to check (empty placeholder column).

Create your report.


Arrangement Options:

Stacked – single column - only designated text


Offset stacked – each parties' designated text in its own column


Full transcript – single column entire transcript - designations bolded in the list colors. Please note: this will not produce correctly if you have overlapping or duplicate designations.
