Problem with Copy/Paste from Word (Text is not wrapping)

Katie,

CLAN has CHSTRING command. You can try fixing your students data with the following command:

chstring +q filename(s).cha

after that if the results are correct, then run command:

ren -f *.chstr.cex *.cha

OR if your students back up their original data, then you can fix data with just one command:

chstring +1 +q filename(s).cha


Also, please post CLAN questions to chibolts at googlegroups.com <mailto:chibolts at googlegroups.com> instead.



Leonid.

Some students (especially those with Mac computers) are having difficulty copying and pasting into the CLAN program to work on time alignment of the transcription. When pasted into the CHAT file, the screen extends instead of wrapping to create the regular 'paragraph-type' formatting.
