Linking Documents to Designations - the Right Click and Manual Methods


Click the Link Docs to Video button in the Workflow Ribbon to display the Video Editor and Transcript Viewer.  

Select the Designation List you want to link documents to and hit the Sidebar Button 

to open that Designation List in the Sidebar Pane.   You may need to resize your panes to see everything.  

Click on the > sign to expand the list to see the individual designations. Select the individual designation you want to link to so that the testimony is bold in the Transcript Viewer.

Right Click on the bolded line you want to add a document too.  Select Add Link.


The below dialog box comes up and you need to add an ID and then choose your other small options associated with your link for how an individual link will show when played through LIVE.



Split Screen: Although the size and location can be set in the Preferences Menu.  Checking this moves the video to a corner while the document appears on the screen at the same time.  Scrolling text appears at the bottom of the screen unless "Hide Text" is checked.

Hide Video: This removes the video from the screen completely and only shows the document and the scrolling text unless "Hide Text" is checked.


Hit Okay and the Link will now appear under the designation in the Designation List with the page/line and the ID that you linked.  It will also appear in the Document Links section in the Video Editor while that designation is selected.

To “Hide” the document automatically, at the correct line, Right click on the bolded testimony in the Transcript Viewer on the designation line that you want to the document to stop showing in the LIVE.  Select Add Link and Leave the ID part blank.  Hit Okay.  The video will resume playing normally showing no documents.

Time to fine tune that LINK!

Click on the link under the individual designation that you want to fine tune.  Fine tuning a linked document means that you are setting the page or annotation to show up on screen at a certain word within a line.

Red link images means it has not been fine tuned, gray means it has.  


Next, go to your Video Editor Pane, you’ll see an editing tool like this.


First, click the Red Links  (it’s below “LINK”) 



Now hit the EYE button    to preview where your page or annotation will appear on screen during your clip... (You’ll get a 3-second preview, it ends where the document appears.) Do you like it? No? You can use the forward and back buttons to set the link to the right spot.  Once you like it, hit SAVE . And your link will turn gray like this.  

You already pre-selected your small options (Split Screen, Hide Video and Hide Text) so you don’t need to do that again.   Unless you change your mind, you can alter it here and it the SAVE button again.

Repeat these steps to add more documents to a Designation List. 


Using the Video Editor you can move through a selected Designation List and add Links to designations if you know the IDs.  Click on the Gray Links with the + to add a LINK.  Type in your Page/Line, ID and select your small options, then hit SAVE to Add.  Follow the Link Tuning instructions above.



Links can be deleted from the Video Editor Pane or by Right Clicking on the link in the Designation List and selecting Delete.
