General Usage Instructions


Set Export Path:

The Tool will only allow export when a valid export path is set. The export path button will open the Windows select folder dialogue. Select or create a suitable content folder. Your selection is stored in memory between sessions.

Select Categories:

Use the Category List check boxes to filter Family List contents. Initially all families are visible in the Family List. Your selection is stored in memory between sessions. Use Collapse button to increase Family List readability.

Filter Family List:

When necessary, you could filter the Family List to further shorten the list.

Check Family List Check Boxes:

Use the list header checkbox to select all entries in list or check/un-check individual list entries.
If a valid export path is set the Export Button should light up allowing you to continue the export operation.
You could drag column headers to increase column readability.

Click Export Button.

Export operation starts. If a selected list entry already exists in export location, a warning popup is displayed. You could choose to overwrite individual files, all files, not to overwrite or to cancel the export operation. If you choose to overwrite all the Overwrite All checkbox in the information area is checked as well.

Right Click Export Path Label:

This will open Windows Explore in the export path location.

Verify the export:

It is always good practice to check that the export was performed as expected. All exported entries should get green checkbox background. You could also note the export date and time for randomly selected entries as indicated in the information label.
