How to Clone a Dragon Professional Individual Command

By Stephanie Diamond

When cloning commands, the Command Browser in Dragon Professional Individual is a bit different from the Command Editor. Instead of dictating information, you select the command name from a list. To launch the Command Browser, do the following:

1Choose Tools→Command Browser.

You are presented with a big list of commands. Scroll down the list until you find the exact name of your command. Check the Context dialog box to be sure you are in the right type of command. In this case, you need to be in Microsoft Word to edit the command you created for Word. In this example, it is Catalog Sent.

2Say or click the name of the command. Make sure that you are in Script mode and then choose New Copy.

The Command Editor pops up with the command information you created. You can use the Create New button at the bottom of the dialog box. In this example, you use the Create New command as the basis for a new command.

3Click the Create New button.

Notice that the name is incremented by one. For example, if the name was “Catalog Sent,” the new one becomes “Catalog Sent 2.” You can modify the contents of the command and change the name to something else more memorable. In this example, the MyCommand Name was changed to “Product Docs” and the text edited accordingly by changing “Catalog Sent” to “Product Docs.”

4Click Save.

You now have a new command based on an earlier one, without having to start from scratch.
