Chuck, much appreciated!
To be honest I’ve always seem to have this problem and finally it just irritated me one too many times and so I thought I should try to get it fixed since it seems to be a particularly good feature when one is dealing with a window that for one reason or another doesn’t seem to want to work well with Dragon.
Changing direction, (maybe this should be separate post but here goes anyways) - I was just wondering why VC decided to change your old method of allowing one to do the shortcuts i.e. the save to or open from folder shortcuts?
I remember when I had one of the older versions, one could go in and simply type in the address of where one wanted to save or open a file anywhere on ones computer or a network location etc. i.e. type in Ccorporate clientscorrespondence… and give it a name i.e. corporate clients and then just say "Open or save from/to corporate clients and you went directly to that folder in the windows frame work and… most importantly the cursor went to exactly where you wanted it to be after initiating the command that.
You seem to have changed that on the version I’m on with the “tagging mechanism”. I thought the old system was so much better personally!
I’m primarily using VC and Dragon at the office and am hooked obviously therefore into a network. Most of the files I want to save documents too exist on the server and not on my computer.
I have consequently thus never been quite sure how to figure out how to use the current shortcuts effectively since it seems like in order to tag something, it has to be in one’s “my document folder” which is a folder on my computer and not on the server! Consequently, the only way I could think of how to have the network files/folders etc. show up in “my documents” folder on my computer was to set up a shortcut of the network folder in my documents folder).
I am assuming that this is not the optimum way to have this work? Probably user error on my part for sure!!
The command save/open to/from corporate clients folder works but puts the cursor in the “file name” part of the window - I then have to essentially back tab twice, hit down arrow and then enter to get into the shortcut corporate clients folder to access all the sub-folders I might want to choose from to open or save a file (there is simply way too many corporate client folders within the overall corporate clients folder to set up a shortcut for each specific corporate client and on top of that each corporate client has a number of standard folders into which we save documents - so really just looking to access a folder on the server and be able to drill down immediately without have to redirect the cursor).
Its all inefficient and I even set up a separate dragon command (which I simply called “redirect”) to deal with the back tab 2, down arrow, enter, to put the cursor where I need it to be (I have Dragon Professional 12 by the way).
Is there a way to use the tagging system to a document or folder not in my documents? If so, how does one go about doing that?
Anyways, if you could point me in the right direction as to how to have this all work properly, that would be great.
Also, any chance of you guys reinstating the older shortcut methodology you previously used - please!!
