Although InqScribe does not have a character counter or character limit, there is a potential workaround available now: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/180460-how-do-i-set-a-character-limit-while-transcribing
Another user wrote in with a similar feature request to set a character limit per line.AdminAlex Underwood (Community Manager, InqScribe) shared this idea ·
Thanks for writing in the request! It’s great to hear users articulating their suggestions in the comments. We will keep this under consideration for a future InqScribe update.
One of our users wrote in to add onto this idea: When the media file is playing and reaches a timecode already entered into the transcript, that timecode should give a visual cue to help you assess the timing of that timecode. This visual cue could be simply highlighting the currently "active" timecode.
Hi Nick, Thanks for writing in the suggestion. InqScribe currently has time of day support. You can enable this by clicking "Media > Select Media Source", choosing "Source Type: Offline Media" and checking the "Use time of day" box.
Are you asking specifically for Midi Time Code support?

This year we've added support for Premiere and Avid compatible formats. Although it's taking longer than anticipated, Final Cut Pro X XML is still on our radar. Part of the reason for the delay is that FCP XML is a fairly complex format, whereas Premiere and Avid accept more straightforward-to-code subtitle files.
We are working on adding more export formats, including support for FCP X, for our next release. In the meantime, you might try one of our FCP X workarounds: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/190892-can-i-use-inqscribe-with-fcp-x
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!
We're actively working on a few new and improved export formats, but it's a little too early to give details. I'll make sure to post any Avid-related updates once I can say more!
Thanks for writing in the request! We realize the Adobe Premiere community has grown stronger over the last few years. We’ll keep this under review for a future update of InqScribe.
We're doing some research into Premiere support for InqScribe. We're wondering, what format do you currently use to import subtitles? Do you have a preferred subtitle format for use with Premiere?

Request from community: include ability to highlight.
I’ve edited the description to specify “snippet collections” as a feature you can use for yourself, not just for sharing purposes. Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks for writing in the suggestion. The good news is that we are actively considering this feature. We're currently working on some improvements to InqScribe, and although we cannot promise anything at this stage, we will try to include the "separate sets of shortcuts/snippets" idea.
We've actually already had someone write in this very suggestion, so I'm going to merge your votes into one entry: http://support.inqscribe.com/forums/4206-general-feedback-for-inqscribe/suggestions/234196-support-separate-sets-of-snippets-shortcuts
Community Manager, InqScribe
We're considering this feature, and we'd love to collect some more feedback about how you use shortcuts. We're toying with the idea of there being pre-loaded, default "sets" of shortcuts to choose from. Of course, these would be optional and adjustable. What we'd like to know is: what shortcuts should we pre-assign InqScribe? Are there certain commands and/or triggers that are essential to your workflow?
We welcome any feedback for both keyboard and foot pedal setups. Thanks!
Thanks for the suggestion. We’re currently working on revamping InqScribe’s media engine, and VLC support is a possibility. For more about InqScribe’s future, head over to our blog: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/
Currently, VLC Player cannot be used to control media in InqScribe, but did you know you can view your exported subtitles in VLC Player? More in our Knowledge Base here: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/422681-how-do-i-import-my-subtitles-into-vlc-player
Just to clarify, this is a page for InqScribe support and feature suggestions. Based on your comment, it sounds like you might be looking for VLC media player support, which you can find here:
InqScribe is unaffiliated with VLC. If you have have any issues or questions about InqScribe, feel free to send us an email at email@example.com.

We hope to get to this soon, along with support for stl import.
InqScribe already allows you to export to the Subrip SRT format. Please read my previous comment for instructions.
You can actually already export to an .srt file using InqScribe. It's importing that we're still working on. We don't have a release date set for importing, but we do plan to add more importing and exporting formats in the near future.
More info on Subrip .srt export here: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/format_subrip.html
Rest assured that we are currently working on the next release of InqScribe, and importing .srt files is on our list of planned features. Although we can't give out a release date, you can read more about some of the changes coming to InqScribe in our blog here: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/
Sorry to hear InqScribe's foreign language support isn't working as expected. Based on your description, it sounds like you may be encountering some abnormal behavior. You should at least be able to highlight text and drag it around the transcript.
Could you send us a bug report? Simply launch InqScribe and select "Report a bug" from the Help menu. Once we receive some more information, we should be able to help you out!
Not to worry! Retina support is planned.
Rest assured we are working on an update that will bring retina support. Sorry to say, but no release date is planed at this time.
This feature hasn't been implemented in InqScribe, but that's not to say it will never happen. We consider all ideas. We pay extra attention to popular ideas, so make sure to cast your votes!
Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll look into MAXQDA support for a future update of InqScribe.
We're working on something that could add more export options to InqScribe. We'll keep MAXQDA on our list of potential formats. Sorry though, it's a bit too early to give out more details.
Hi, this is still in our feature queue. We hope to add it in a future release.
Sorry, this feature has not been added yet. We haven't forgotten it though-- we are considering line numbers for a future release.

Thanks for your feedback Diego. I've created a separate suggestion for "Display subtitle character count," which you can vote for below:
In the meantime, there are 2 workarounds to consider:
1. Re-size the width of the InqScribe window to fit the maximum amount of characters per line. If the text spills over into the next line, you'll know it's too long.
2. Copy and paste your InqScribe transcript into Word. You'll then be able to use Word's ability to count characters.
I realize these are not ideal solutions, which is why we're planning a more elegant Preview Subtitle mode.

Thanks for your feedback. Adding a spell checker is a high priority for the next InqScribe update. For users interested in an AutoCorrect feature, I've created a separate request. Feel free to cast your votes here:
Thanks for writing in the suggestion. When you say match the settings of a video, what settings would InqScribe be matching? Or are you asking for a way to match settings of a previous InqScribe document (so, maybe it would remember your font, font size, timecode frame rate, etc.)?
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.
I've updated the description to incorporate a similar anonymous request: the ability to default your media file's filename to the title of InqScribe transcripts.
Thanks for writing in. As far as I can tell, you can still enter frame specific times in time code fields, even if "omit frames" is checked. Can you tell us step-by-step what problem you're seeing? Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The more detail you can provide, the better.
