How to Create Dragon Professional Individual Commands for New Applications

By Stephanie Diamond

When you create a command in Dragon Professional Individual, you have to decide what type of command it will be — Global, Application-specific, or Window-specific. But what if you are using a program that hasn’t been introduced to your Dragon Professional Individual assistant?

You need to have them meet! That process is a snap. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the application you want to use.

  2. From the DragonBar, choose Tools→Add New Command.

  3. At the MyCommands Editor dialog box, fill in the name of the new command.

  4. When you reach the Availability section, select the Application-specific radio button.

    The name of your new application will be listed in the box, as shown.

    Continue to create the new command and remember to select that application from the Command Browser if you want to edit it.

    The application appears in the MyCommands Editor dialog box.
