Dependent Tier

Between the transcription lines, you may insert comments or descriptions of embodied actions by adding Dependent Tiers. These are generated as %com: or %ges: in the left margin, or some other three letter code following a %-sign.

  1. Generate a new line
  2. Type: %com: (and a tab), then write your comment

Should look like:

*SP01:     This is what speaker one said.
%com:     This is a comment relating to what SP01 said.
