There are additional Options under the Tools dropdown menu and as with any program, you'll have to play with it a while to find all the bells and whistles.
WooHoo! I'm off to transcribe some more.

My basic setup includes: HP computers and laptops, Windows 7 on all (have not upgraded to Windows 10 yet), HP Color Laser Printer, Brother Multi-Function Copier with Document Feeder, Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner.
