TrialDirector Help – Prepare and Manage Exhibits
Correcting Scanning Mistakes
During the scanning process, mistakes sometimes happen. For example, multiple
documents may be incorrectly scanned as a single document. The opposite problem
may occur as well. What should have been treated as a single document was
scanned as multiple documents. Or maybe a page is skipped during scanning.
TrialDirector lets you correct these issues easily and quickly from the Case Explorer
or the Document Manager.
You may also want to insert a color picture that was scanned separately from the
black-and-white images of a document. This can easily be done with TrialDirector's
Insert Page feature.
You cannot correct scanning errors in PDFs or
multi-page TIF files. You can use TrialDirector to
split multi-page TIF files into single-page TIF files
through an export process.
Inserting a Document Break
To separate one document into several documents, insert a document break:
In Case Explorer or Document Manager, select the page where you need the
new document to begin.
Right-click and select Insert Document Break from the shortcut menu. The
selected page is now the first page of the next document.
Removing a Document Break
To combine multiple documents into a single document, remove a document break:
In Case Explorer or Document Manager, select Page 1 of the document you
wish to combine with the previous document.
Right-click and choose Remove Document Break from the shortcut menu.
Both documents are now combined.
Inserting a Page
In Case Explorer or Document Manager, expand the document in order to see
the individual pages.
Right-click on the page that should precede the page you are inserting. Select
Insert Page from the shortcut menu.
In the Insert Page dialog box, the new page ID is displayed. The page ID
should be the ID number of the page on which you right-clicked followed by a
suffix (i.e., A, B, C, etc.). This number can be changed after the insertion
process is completed.
Browse for the page to be inserted:
If you have not yet scanned the page to be inserted, place the page in
your scanner and click Get Page from Scanner. (For more information
on scanning documents, click here.) (Select the checkbox to Show
Controls When Scanning if you want to access your scanner settings.)
If the page has been scanned, click Browse and locate the file.
