Prompt Before Appending with Identical Filename
In some cases files will be exported from a batch with the same name as another file in the same output folder. In these cases it might be best to name the file with a different filename, instead of having SimpleIndex append to the existing file. This option will allow the software to prompt the user if a file is being saved with the same name as a file in the output folder and give the user a chance to type a different name.
- Close SimpleIndex
- Right click on the Job Configuration File (.sic file format) that needs this this setting
- Select Open With… and then pick the preferred text editing software, which is Notepad by default
- search for “PROMPT_BEFORE_APPEND”
- Change “false” to “true”
- Close and Save the file
