The caselist toolkit contains a standalone Word document which allows you to make use of the caselist formatting and upload features of Verbatim 4, even if you use another template. It also includes modified source code from Verbatim 4 for easier integration directly into your current template.
A brief set of usage notes is included in the package below.

The toolkit only works on Windows – but the wiki syntax converters and cite request functions are built into Verbatim Mac 4.
Whether you use the document or the source code, the toolkit contains 4 functions:
1) Cite Request – this lets you turn an individual card into a cite request ready format
2) Cite Request Doc – turns the entire document into a cite-ready list
3) Convert to Wiki Syntax – converts the entire document to cites in ready-to-post wiki syntax for openCaselist. This should help avoid many of the formatting errors people make.
4) Upload to Caselist – Uploads either the current document of cites or an open source speech document (or both) to the caselist.
One thing I am concerned about in releasing this function is that people will take it as an opportunity to just convert every disorganized speech document they produce into cite format and upload it as a new entry – making their wiki pages less readable.
This feature is designed to make formatting and upload to the caselist an easier process – but it is not a substitute for personal organization of disclosed intel. For more in-depth discussion of models for disclosure, see: this post.
