Set Boundary Flags for a Range of Image Keys (BR)

Description

This command can be used to group a range of images together. For example, you can group 100 images into a single folder while retaining their document and child settings. Because the syntax of the BR command includes an image key begin/end range, you can easily modify an ASCII file of begin/end ranges and use the BR command to set document breaks.

  • The first image key you specify in the BR command will receive the boundary you specify in the command.
  • If the beginning image key has a higher boundary flag than the one you supply in the BR command, the existing boundary setting is retained.
  • All subsequent images in the range will retain their boundary settings unless their current settings are higher than the boundary you are applying. In other words, if you are grouping images into a folder, all documents and children in the range will retain their document/child boundary settings.
  • Any images in the range that are originally marked with a boundary higher than the one you are supplying in this LFP command will become pages.
  • If necessary, the boundary of the first image following the range will be changed so it will continue to be separate from the image range whose boundary you are changing.
  • The boundary flag specified in this record must match one of the boundary flags defined in the project’s setup.

This record format is the same for both an Ipro internal image (.IMG) and a standard single image file.

Example

BR,ALG-001,ALG-099,F

This example groups 99 images into a single folder. Any images in the range ALG-002 through ALG-099 that are set to Document and Child will retain their boundary settings. If ALG-100 is not already set to Folder or higher, it will be set to Folder in order to prevent it from being unintentionally grouped with the image range specified in this BR command.
