Exporting documents and data to files, database or document management system.
SimpleIndex can create PDF files with bookmarks based on the index data captured in your batch.
Going the other way–splitting an existing PDF file based on the bookmark value–is not a built-in feature of SimpleIndex. However there are inexpensive command line utilities that you can integrate with SimpleIndex in order to accomplish this.
The command line to split the PDF can be integrated into the Pre-Process setting in SimpleIndex, found under the Advanced Settings section of the Configuration Wizard. An example pre-process using PDFSplitter to split based on the second level bookmark values would be:
PDFSplitter.exe “c:\Images\BookmarkFile.pdf” “%CONFIGFILEFOLDER%\Input” -em bookmarks -b 2
To enable the Media Wizard, you must first create a job configuration that exports index information to an Access database. Once you have scanned all the documents for the CD or DVD and attached them to the database, create a second job that uses “Retrieve and View Records” to search and view these files.
The media wizard will be enabled in the Send menu whenever you have this configuration file open. The sample configurations included with SimpleIndex demonstrate scanning and searching with an Access database. Microsoft Access is not required to create the database.
The media wizard will copy the Access database and all of the files in your Output folder to a temporary folder, along with the SimpleSearch configuration and Autorun files needed to search the files from a CD or DVD. Simply burn all the files in this folder to create the searchable disc.
