Customer Question

I want to enter numerical order as text (such as first or second) -- not as numbers (such as 1st or 2nd). I just upgraded to Dragon Professional Individual and it seems to default to numbers. I am dictating Scripture references and I need the text, not numerals. I tried the command "Stop Numbers Mode", but it didn't work. What do I do?

In Dragon, to indicate you want first formatted as 1st, second as 2nd, and third as 3rd, and so on:

  1. On the DragonBar, select Tools > Formatting.
  2. In the Formatting dialog box, click the Numbers, Units, and Dates tab.
  3. Click the check box labeled Write one-digit ordinals from "third" to "ninth" in hybrid form ("3rd" to "9th").
  4. Click OK to save the settings.
