    "Best transcription editor for tabulate data"

    July 4, 2013  |   By brianh42


    Really stable and easy to use. It does not change cell values. SmartPaste is great.


    No mac version


    I downloaded this genscriber app a few weeks ago, and now I don't know how I could manage without it.

    I had all kinds of problems trying to do census transcriptions with excel and other spreadsheets.

    At first I thought it was just a spreadsheet, but it's not!
    It doesn't try to change my data when I enter it. All date formats stay exactly how I entered them.
    Even better, it displays the image I am transcribing, instead of having to use a separate image viewer.

    The version I have (2.0.5) also has a SmartPaste option that I really like. It allows me to easily copy records from web pages. This saves me a lot of time when I am searching for genealogy records online.
