Hello,

I’m experiencing a minor problem with one of Dragon 15.61’s auto-formatting options. The section is the one that allows you to set your preferences regarding how to format numbers and numerals. You can choose “greater than or equal to 2,” “greater than or equal to 10,” or “greater than or equal to 100.” I prefer to set the value to “10,” but the option keeps resetting to “2” for no particular reason. I’ve unchecked the option for now, and I may stick with that setup because I’m getting used to it, but does anyone know how to fix the unwanted reset issue? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Al

e don't have an answer other than to note that this is not normal Dragon behavior. We also couldn't find an appropriate option.ini setting so your only other choice may be to create a new user profile.

Before creating a new profile -- which for many users takes only five or ten minutes -- I would try making the setting change, saving your Dragon profile, exiting Dragon, and then restarting Dragon. Does the setting stick?

If it doesn't, I concur with Lunis' suggestion.

Will give it another try -- I've done that a few times, thanks, but so far no luck. Am at least getting used to the "not checked" option -- it may turn out that I prefer that one.

The setting is recorded in itnoptions.ini, not options.ini. Just because it is one the the ITN (Inverse Text Normalisation) rules, the ones applied at the last stage before printing out.

Dragon losing the settings has become a nag recently, but at no reproducible pattern.

You can try editing itnoptions.ini manually, as a workaround, or in an even more robust way, deleting it, which will make Dragon create a new one the next time it is launched.

I'll have a look -- thanks for the info about where the necessary settings are.

I did a bit of checking, and it seems that as soon as I save the user profile, the relevant value is reset to 

NumberRange=(infinity)

That happens even before I exit Dragon and reopen the profile.

I tried manually setting it to =(10) in the file specified, but it doesn't stick. Odd.

When going with the defaults, which is 10, the section in the file looks like this:

;(NumberRange)

After modifying the default, the section may look like this:

;(NumberRange)
NumberRange=100

Keep in mind that, prior to reloading the user profile, you will have to close the file, and take the focus out of the user profile folder in File Explorer.
