I use Korean and the cursor is located between lines. Also, dragging (for copy, delete, paste, etc.) does not work properly. Please improve basic input/edit function for foreign languages. Thanks1 vote
I think there should be a feature to automate volume adjustment. So either all songs can play at the same volume or one can program a playlist to play a particular song louder.3 votes
"It would be nice to be able to import and not change my preferred sizing.
It would save a lot of resizing every time I import a file. I tend to log a lot of footage where I am handling over 100 files at a time and have to resize every one so I can access other things on my desktop at the same time." -Adrienne3 votes
Sometimes transcribers are requested to enter timecodes every, say, 20 seconds. InqScribe doesn't automatically insert timecodes in order to avoid situations where the timecodes gets inserted in a bad spot, like t[00:00:20.00]his.
A workaround is to have the transcript, or a part of the transcript change color to indicate the 20 second mark. Ideally, the would be a color animation (for example, gradually turning from green to yellow to red) so that you could plan your line break.1 vote

We’ll consider the feature for a future update. Make sure to cast your votes if you’re interested in this idea.
Other media applications will use the built-in plause/pause and previous/next buttons that normally operate iTunes, but only when that application is in use. This would provide convenient one-key shortcuts for play/pause and skipback/forward.1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion Josh! We’re working now on some big changes to InqScribe, so we’ll keep your feedback in mind. We would like to add in media key support for Mac and PC.
In the transcript window, it would be helpful if there was a way to view the number of characters per subtitle/timecode. It can be difficult to quickly judge the number of characters otherwise.
Having a character count in-between timecodes would solve this problem.
Alternatively, the ability to place an adjustable vertical line across the transcript would allow you to quickly eyeball the relative length and consistency of each text chunk.6 votes
Without this support, transcribing Hebrew and Arabic languages could be messy, especially in case of long sentences or several sentences in one dialog.7 votes
I'm wondering how difficult it might be to support the Avid DS caption format. It is a very simple unicode text file with no separators other than spaces and line returns. Sample below.
Text line 1
Text line 2
Text line 1
Text line 2
This format is supported for captioning within Avid non-linear video editing software including Avid DS and Avid Media Composer.
We’ve put up an experimental web-based Avid DS subtitle exporter. You can find it here: https://labs.inqscribe.com/exporter/avid/
Please try it out and give us feedback!
You should be able to unpin the video window from the text window so you can place in a secondary window. I personally want to use your software for court presentation by clicking on the timecode and immediately playing back for the jury. Right now I have to note the time code then pull up the video in a separate player and cue to the correct time.7 votes
Thanks for the suggestion Andrew. I see how unpinning the video window would be really useful for presentation scenarios. We will consider this for a future update of InqScribe.
Your second suggestion about embedding subtitles within the playback window is actually covered in the following suggestion: http://support.inqscribe.com/forums/4206-general-feedback-for-inqscribe/suggestions/3057491-preview-subtitled-movies
Feel free to place your votes there! I’ve edited this part out of the description to keep these ideas separate.

add the ability to export onto a translucent background. Maybe have the transparent with a transparency/ opacity scale.1 vote
Thanks for your suggestion. InqScribe currently offers a “Transparent” background option for subtitle display (see the Save Subtitled QuickTime Movie Menu settings: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/subtitling.html#export). However, we do not currently offer a translucent/opaque background option, so we will place your suggestion under consideration for a future update of InqScribe.

Not to worry! Retina support is planned.
I just purchased the program and even though that I love the concept, I'm finding it pretty hard to scrub back and forward in an easy way. I
Easier scrubbing4 votes
As Matt pointed out, scrubbing performance will vary based on a variety of factors. We are currently revamping InqScribe’s media engine, so hopefully you can expect some general performance improvements on the next release.

When exporting, by default name the exported file with the same name as the Inqscribe project (or at least give the option, this saves a lot of time)... instead of always defaulting to "export.txt or .xml"
Additionally, when saving an InqScribe transcript, you should have the ability to autofill the title with the media filename.6 votes
Thanks for writing in the request. I see how renaming files each time can become tedious. We’ll place this under review for the next InqScribe update.
How about being able to set a geo-location using Google Earth/Maps for a map reference to your audio clips - working in a similar way to the Timecode feature, but plotting map references. You could maybe have access to a window with google maps/earth in the interface, say below where the player is now. Finding a way to link map coordinates with the text/audio would be great.1 vote
