Project-Specific Indexing Instructions

Account for Every Image:

  • If the image is blank, unreadable, or there is no data to index on the record, the image must be so marked in the first field titled Image Type.

Number of Records per Image:

  • The data entry area is set at 1 record per image; however, this project may contain more than 1 record per image. You will need to adjust the number of lines to match the number of records on your image. To do this:
    1. On the menu bar, click Tools.
    2. Click Records per Image.
    3. In the box next to Number of records, type the desired number.
    4. Click the Check Box to apply to all images if applicable.
    5. Click OK.
  • Upon completion of each image, a message may appear asking if you want to add one or more records to this image.
    1. Insure that "0" (zero) is in the Number of records box.
    2. Click OK.

Using the Ruler: 

  • 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 see the ruler, follow these steps:
    1. On the Menu bar, click View.
    2. Select Show Ruler.
