Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary.

Extra Keying Helps
Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
Please key ALIASES with the prisoner number and name (on same line, usually above the prisoner name). Some keyers are assigning to the name on the line above the alias.
Please do not key TRANSIENT. Just leave that field empty.
Residences should be keyed as seen. If city and state are shown, they should be keyed as seen with a comma to separate them.
One keyer omitted the "Texas" when it was shown as part of the residence.

Q The guides are a wonderful help on this project. I make a big solid line by putting the tiny lines together until it's a solid line (about 1/4"). This helps when going from left to right in the image (cntrl alt arrow right) and back again. When I log out and come back in, the guide is gone and I have to re-do it. Any way to make the teeny tiny lines bigger lines? Or just make one solid guide line about 1/8 to 1/4" thick? AND add the ability to save them so they're there the next time?
Tip: I use the F3 and F7 so much that I've put little red shiny stars above the keys so I can see them quickly.
