Right. To put it another way, InqScribe itself will continue to separate seconds from frames with a period. But if you need to transfer timecode data from InqScribe to somewhere else, we want to provide the exported data in the format you need. So we'll work on adding an export option for timecode format.
Does ProTools have a documented import format we can align with?
We'd love to offer localized translations for InqScribe. This is something that is really going to be language-specific and user-driven (so votes matter!). I'd suggest withdrawing the vote for this and instead adding a vote for the specific language that you'd like to see.
There is a menu item that does this: Transcript > Sync Transcript with Current Time. You can use the shortcut (cmd-K on Mac, ctrl-K on Windows) as often as you like to ensure that visible transcript matches the current time in your media.
(Note: this only works as long as time codes in your transcript are in chronological order. If they're not, where you end up is a crap shoot.)
We played with making an automatic mode for this (we called it "Follow Me" or something like that) but we decided it didn't work, because it wasn't obvious which mode you were in and the consequence of scrolling the transcript out from under you while you were editing was too high.
But I think the manual menu item will take care of most of your needs. Give it a try.
You can do this now, although it's not perfect.
Set the font and size in your transcript to what you will use for your subtitles. Then use the Transcript > Set Transcript Width... dialog to set the width, in pixels, for the text field in the main window. This should give you a good feel for where your captions will wrap.
This works best if you add a return after each time code, so the time codes aren't included in the line (they will throw off the wrapping). For example:
My first caption
My second caption
We're open to exploring better ways to preview captions, but this approach works in many cases.
Hope that helps.

We agree this would be cool. Moving to a multiple-video, multiple-transcript model would add a lot of flexibility: not only could you reference multiple videos from one transcript, but you could more easily review multiple transcripts that all reference the same video.
That said, this is a significant change to the core InqScribe model. We're exploring some ideas, but don't have anything we can announce right now.

Interesting idea. We'd have to figure out how to integrate it with the main control array, since it's clearly a mode that you need to be able to turn on or off. We'll look into it.
Hi, this is still in our feature queue. We hope to add it in a future release.
Nice idea. We'll look into it.
If everyone has the media file in the same location relative to the transcript file, InqScribe can find it. We're also looking into the possibility of letting you define a "Media Library" directory, and InqScribe would always search that (by file name, probably) to look for matches.
Would a media library directory solve the collaboration issue?
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
We're looking into doing this for Windows. I doubt we'll do it for OS X. I'm assuming you're referring to the Windows version?

Great idea. InqScribe should already be able to play a multi-channel WAV since it's using QuickTime (or Windows Media Player) behind the scenes. The issue is turning the balance slider into separate controls when you have more than two channels. We'll see what we can do.

The "add styled text support" covers this request. We'd suggest moving your votes there (it's pretty high on the charts). Or consider voting for "let me use InqScribe to control playback in the background", which would let you edit directly in Word while controlling video playback via InqScribe and a foot pedal.

Thanks for catching this. We're due to take an accessibility pass through the entire interface, and we'll be sure to include this.
Can you say more about the particular error that was reported? InqScribe itself doesn't report any errors in hex, so the particular error you're seeing may be something that Windows is reporting, and we're just passing it on.

We hope to get to this soon, along with support for stl import.
There are a couple of pieces to this. One is Flash video support, which we're working on. I think there's a separate Flash video entry that you can vote on.
In terms of subtitles, YouTube will let you upload Subrip-format caption files, which you can export from InqScribe right now. We'll look into supporting import of Subrip files to complete the picture.
Flash support is on our radar. We’re currently in the process of revamping our media support, which you can read about here: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/
We're looking into this. It's probably worth noting here that one problem with Flash movies is that you cannot jump with frame-level accuracy. Generally you just get dumped out at the nearest keyframe.
