Suisse, Vaud—Terriers 1234–1798 [Partie 2]

Project Instructions

Number of Records per Image

  • The data entry area is set at one record per image. If an image contains more than one record, you will need to add records in the data entry area to match the number of records on the image. To add records:
  • If the last record on an image continues to the next image, index the entire record, including the information that continues to the next image.. To see the information on the next image:
    1. On the menu bar, click View.
    2. Click Show Previous or Next Image.
    3. In the window that appears, click the Next Image button.
    4. Index the record while viewing both images at the same time. (In this case, ignore the "Do not index from this image" warning.)

Language for Field Names

  • The indexing field names and the field helps in the bottom corner of the indexing screen are available in French and English. To change the language:
    1. In the menu at the top of the indexing screen, click Tools.
    2. Select Options.
    3. Click on the Language tab.
    4. Click in the Language for Field Names box and Language for Field Help and Project Information box, and select the preferred option.
    5. Close the data entry screen, and reopen the batch for the change to take effect.

Highlights and Using the Ruler

  • Highlights are not available in 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 see the ruler:
    1. On the menu bar, click View.
    2. Select Show Ruler.

Handwriting Helps

  • Many of these records are handwritten. The handwriting resource on the data entry screen may help you decipher difficult handwriting.
  • To access this resource, click on the Handwriting Help icon (which looks like an inkwell with an orange feather quill).
