Sample Images

When there is not a record to be indexed on the left side of the image, mark the 1st record as "BLANK" (sample 1)

Number of Records per Image

  • The data-entry area is set at 2 records per image. If the image contains more than 2 records, you will need to add records in the data-entry area to match the number of records on the image. To add records:
    1. In the menu bar, click Tools.
    2. Click Records per Image.
    3. Click in the Number of records box, and type the number of records on the image.
    4. Click OK.
  • If the image has fewer than 2 records, you will need to mark the unused record blank in the data-entry area. To mark a record blank, select any field in the record, and press Ctrl+Shift+B, or: 
    1. In the menu bar, click Edit.
    2. Click Mark Field or Record.
    3. Click Mark Record Blank.
  • If you press Tab or Enter after you complete the last record on an image, a message will appear asking if you want to add one or more records to the image. If you have already indexed all the records on the image, do the following:
    1. Ensure that 0 (zero) is in the Number of records box.
    2. Click OK.

Highlights and the Ruler

  • Highlights are not available for this project. You may use the ruler, instead, to follow a record across an image.
  • If you choose to use the ruler, please be aware that the ruler is not anchored to the indexing screen and does not automatically move as you move to a new entry. To use the ruler:
    1. In the menu bar, click View.
    2. Click Show Ruler
