Transcribing: Autotext deletes timestamp

13.03.2019, 20:07

Not sure if this is expected behavior, but if Autotext is used to insert a speaker, it deletes the timestamp if it is on the same line.

If I add a carriage return after the timestamp, it is unaffected and isn't deleted, but if the first word in the sentence is replaced by an Autotext, then a timestamp in that line will be deleted
If my line was something like:
[ts] Speaker 2: Instead of, yeah. Instead of pushing the pills, kind of it, you know, walk through ...

And I select "Speaker 2:" and use the abbreviation "i" that inserts "Interviewer:" when I tpe "i ", i get:
Interviewer: Instead of, yeah. Instead of pushing the pills, kind of it, you know, walk through

... and the timestamp is gone.

If my text was one line down from the timestamp, the abbreviation has no effect on it

Dear mloxton,

I'm sorry I couldn't reproduce your mistake. It would be good if you submit a support message to MaxQDA with a link to this forum post, then we can follow this up. For example, a video of the malfunction would help.

I hope we can fix the bug quickly.

best regards,

Andreas K. from the support team
