Importing TextMap Annotations exports


Designation Lists can be added/imported into OnCue via a TextMap Annotations Export (*.csv).  It can be a very quick way to load a lot of designations all at once if you already have them in a TextMap Database.   Make sure your OnCue database already has the sync files loaded.  


Textmap Issues = OnCue Highlighter Colors

OnCue Highlighter Color Names must be identical to your TextMap issue names.   First, setup your TextMap and then set your OnCue highlighter names to match.  


TextMap (L) and OnCue (R)


Export your TextMap Annotations

Second, export your Annotations.  It is very import to include Notes and Issues.  OnCue doesn't look at the notes now but it may in future and it lines up the columns for import. 

Your Annotation CSV should look like this:




Next, the Transcript column in your CSV must match the Media ID for the transcript in OnCue.  You can find this under properties (View>Properties) 


Name your File

What you name your CSV file is what will show up in OnCue. A file name of V9 Sample Case Designations gets the ID of V9 and the name Sample Case Designations.


Put it together

Once everything is as you want it to be.  You can import 3 different ways.  

In the Designations Drawer click on the "+" and select Import TextMap Annotations File

or From the File Menu select Import->TextMap Annotations File.

or Right click inside the Designation Drawer. Select Import->TextMap Annotations File.

To learn more about designations, depositions and creating designation lists explore the topic: Depositions-Designations.  There is a lot you can do.
