Editing - File Location and Placement
The CemToCD place the files automatically in the
Distribution folder. This information is to
provide users a method of adding additional
files. See the CemToCD for additional
information. Photos can be dragged and dropped
using the CemEditor or by filling an entire
folder as described below.
The CemEditor and CemViewer are dependent on
files being in the right locations for the
database and viewers to work correctly.
If you have a cemetery named "NameOfCemetery"
that you are transcribing then you will want to
make a folder and name it "NameOfCemetery".
You will then open the "NameOfCemetery" Folder
and Create another new folder named "ALSPWO". The
"ALSPWO" can be created directly using the
ALSPWO "Select Image File" dialog by
double-clicking on one of the image fields
Your pictures are then copied to this folder
either now or later, but before entering them.
When the editor is open you simply type in the
first picture name and it should open in the
Editor Screen. Images can also be selected by
double-clicking on any of the image fields.
If you want to put pictures in sub-folders of the
"ALSPWO: folder you can, but you will need to
enter the sub-folder and picture name in the
The database file with the extension ".mdb" the
"ALSPWO" folder needs to be in the same folder as
the ".mdb" file. See screen shot:
When you encrypt the files they will end up with a .enc as the file name extension.
The CemViewer looks for a .enc picture file.
The CemEditor looks for the filename you type in.
