Data Format Information

Here's everything that you need to know about Data Format information which is the part of Management Studio.

Data Format Information is the area of Management Studio where you can view the document types supported by DataStore®DSX (for example: PDF, Plain text, MS Word, MS Excel, JPEG, PNG, GIF and so on). You can also view the Mime* type and whether Page Specific support and Page Manipulation support is available along with support for Style Sheets which can modify content. It is also the area where you can view assigned default Style Sheets.

Note: *Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions (Mime) is an Internet standard that extends the format of e-mail to support: 

Text in character sets other than ASCI  Non-text attachments Message bodies with multiple parts Header information in non-ASCII character sets

In the tree view, expand Configuration and select Data Format Information. The Data Format Information Options are described in Table 33.

Table 33. Terminology: Data Format Information Options



Data Format Information

The application name or the file extension defining the file type.

Mime Type

The Mime type – for example, text, image or application followed by more information about the entry.

Last Modified

The last time the Data Format Information for the selected entry was modified. This is often the installation date of the application.

Supports Page Specific

Yes – the format can support multiple pages.

No – the format cannot support multiple pages.

Supports Page Manipulation

Yesthe pages can be manipulated (merged together, reordered, individually deleted, etc.) from within Indexing Studio (such as TIFF and PDF files). So if you have a text document in Indexing Studio, you can see its pages, apply index values to them, but not move them around. A TIFF image, however, can have its pages dragged and dropped around.

No – the pages cannot be manipulated (merged together, reordered, individually deleted, etc.) from within Indexing Studio.

Style Sheet Can Modify Content

Yes – when a Style Sheet is configured, it can change the look of the actual data itself. For example, if the Style Sheets changes the font of a text page to be very large, the actual data looks different. However, if you do this for an archived TIFF, the image does not change.

No – Style Sheets cannot change the look of the actual data.

Default Style Sheet

When a Style Sheet is configured, all files of the selected file type which are imported into Indexing Studio have that Style Sheet applied as default. However, if the Data Definition has one or more Style Sheet associated with it, then one of those Style Sheets will be used according to the Style Sheet configuration in the Data Definition.

To configure a Style Sheet, select one from the drop-down list.

To clear a Style Sheet, select the first (blank) entry at the top of the drop-down list
