Where are my dot phrases?
Ok this is the last step. And it is critical to get access to your dot phrases.
Go back to your email inbox. Click on Step 3: Get your dot phrases.
The link will pop a browser window on TextExpander website. Click on Subscribe to Group.
A green box will pop-up stating that you have subscribed to the snippet group. (snippets = dot phrases/templates).
That’s it! Now you should have access to all our templates. Go back to the TextExpander window.
If you want to edit your dot phrases you will need to right-click StatNote PRO – primary care library and select Duplicate. This will create your own copy of the snippet library. * ( this feature is currently only available for Mac users)
If you have any technical difficulties or questions contact our support staff or write a comment below.
Remember you can use your dot phrases in any EHR. Basically any text box where you can type with your computer.
It’s almost impossible to remember all the dot phrases. You can use a feature called inbox search to look up your template or dot phrase. Press the hotkey Control + / (Windows) or Command + / (Mac).
If you created your own copy of the snippet group or were using our demo version, make sure you disable the Inline Search function for those snippet groups you are no longer using. Otherwise all the copies will show up when you search for a specific dot phrase.
