9. Once a change is made and saved – all transcript reports, designation reports, scrolling text and the transcript itself will be changed in OnCue.

Using Manual Transcript Sync

Does every first line on your transcript have the deponent’s name on it? Do your designations look weird because of it?


1. Go to Edit/Preferences, click on Options, and click Show Advanced Settings.

2. Go to Designations & Transcripts, scroll down to the bottom on the right. Under Advanced Settings, check the box next to Allow find/replace when editing transcript text (beta) and hit okay.

3. Follow steps 1-3 above.


4. Once, the transcript is opening for editing, Click the drop next to the arrow, scroll down and select Replace Text.

5. Put what you want into the replace what you want–you can do all at once or little by little to review.


To remove text and make a line blank, you will need to type space. There needs to be a character to replace what is there.

6. After replacing, save changes just like above and then Save & Close.

7. That text is now removed from your transcript and also any designation you may have created.
