Select source files

User interface > Transformation of groups of files > Transformation manager > Select source files


The files which shall be transformed are selected on the first page of the transformation manager and are shown in a table.





The page has a tool bar of its own with the buttons:


add_btn        Insert an empty row

AddFile_btn        Select a single source file

AddFolder        Select a whole source directory

delete_btn        Deleting a row

ClearTable_btn        Clear the whole table



The choice of a file or a folder is carried out respectively with a corresponding selection box. Several files also can be selected at once in the selection box.




After the confirmation of the choice a new row is inserted in the table below the tool bar for every file or every folder.





There are five columns in the table:




a simple counter




The absolute path of the file or folder.


Filename or filter


For files the file name can be seen here (with extension).

For folders a filter can be specified here. Filters already defined can be selected from a combo box in this column by the mouse,




however, also arbitrary other filters can be written directly to the field. E.g. with the filter "*.txt" only the files of the folder will be transformed, which have the extension "txt".




The check box in this field can be activated only for folders. If it is activated, then all files in the sub-folders of the shown directory are transformed too.




Normally the check box of this field remains deactivated. However, it can be that you want to except some files or folders from the transformation of a folder. This is possible by producing rows of their own for these exceptions in the table and activating the excluding check box by mouse.




Extra parameters per file or file group can be put in the last field.
