ProTEXT works very well with Omni CAT

To make a properly formatted ASCII text file using OMNI CAT
To create an ASCII file which contains Page Breaks:
  1. Edit your current Omni Cat "LIT CONFIG" file.
  2. Change PAGE BREAKS = 0
    to     PAGE BREAKS = YES
To create an ASCII file which is Double Spaced:
  1. Edit your current Omni Cat "LIT CONFIG" file.
  2. Change SHOW DOUBLE SPACE = 0
    to     SHOW DOUBLE SPACE = YES
EXAMPLE: Making a NEW LIT CONFIG file:
From the Main Menu in Omni Cat:
  1. Press 4 - Edit Selection
  2. Press 1 - Start Edit of Text
  3. A screen comes up:
    The first line just contains your name or initials
    The second line (Job Name:) will hold the
    name of your new LIT CONFIG file.
    Type in a very simple name, (no spaces)
    (Like "CT" for Court Transcript) press Enter
  4. Make New file? Answer Y for yes.
  5. A blank screen comes up:
  6. Type this exactly
    PAGE BREAKS = YES
    SHOW DOUBLE SPACE = YES
  7. Press F2 (Save and Quit)
When you create your ASCII file, use the job name that you used in step 3 above.
The new ASCII file will now be in a proper format.
