Case Catalyst Using ProTEXT with Case Catalyst Software

ProTEXT works very well with all versions of Case Catalyst !

Case Catalyst 4: Where are my ASCII files?
Case Catalyst by default saves your ASCII files in the C: Drive, in the following folder:
Here is their formula
C:\CAT4\user\"your user name"\filename.v1
For example - C:\CAT4\user\Julie\Sample.v1
For example - C:\CAT4\user\Robert\Sample.v1
For example - C:\CAT4\user\JohnDoe\Sample.v1

NOTE: Case Catalyst ASCII files usually end with ".v1"
Case Catalyst 3: Where are my ASCII files?
Case Catalyst by default saves your ASCII files in the C: Drive, in the following folder:
Here is their formula
C:\CAT3\user\"your user name"\filename.v1
For example - C:\CAT3\user\Julie\Sample.v1
For example - C:\CAT3\user\Robert\Sample.v1
For example - C:\CAT3\user\JohnDoe\Sample.v1

NOTE: Case Catalyst ASCII files usually end with ".v1"
There is a "Page Break" bug in RELEASE 2.2 of Case Catalyst
When older Case Catalyst 2.2 creates ASCII files, Extra Page breaks are added after pages
25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200, 225... etc. (all pages divisible by 25)
This messes up your ASCII file.
This causes BLANK PAGES to be printed in ProTEXT!
I have had hundreds of support calls over the years about this problem!

FIX 1: - The best fix:
Stenograph was aware of this bug, and has offered to Upgrade you for FREE


FIX 2: - The hard way - Removing Extra Page Breaks manually:
Run ProEDIT, then Open the ASCII file created by Case Catalyst 2.2.
Press the PAGE DOWN key many times, until you see TWO Page Breaks together.
Place your Cursor on ONE of the Extra Page Breaks, then press your Delete key.
Repeat the process until all of the Double Page Breaks are removed.
Exit ProEDIT, saving your changes, then run ProTEXT

Since the mid 1990's ProTEXT has had hundreds of very satisfied Case Catalyst users.
Case Catalyst users tell us they like ProTEXT much better than the Condensing that came with Case Catalyst.
Try downloading a free copy of ProTEXT and try it with your ASCII from Case Catalyst!

If you are using Case Catalyst - you will be delighted with ProTEXT!
