Document Properties: Source

The Source properties page lists the root source files. When iSiloX converts a document, it adds each root source file as a new page of the document in the order listed. Then linked files are pulled in to create additional pages.

The Source column lists the full paths and URLs of the root files and the Page column lists their corresponding page numbers in the resulting document. If one or more of the listed files is an HTML file containing frames, the Page column is inaccurate because each frame becomes an individual page in the resulting document and iSiloX can not determine that a file contains frames until it begins converting the file.

Adding Source URLs

iSiloX supports retrieval of source content from the Web using HTTP URLs.

Dragging a URL

Internet Explorer: From Internet Explorer, if the Address bar shows the URL of a source you want to add, you can select the URL, then drag and drop it into the Source list.

Netscape: From the Netscape browser, if the Location bar shows the URL of a source you want to add, to the left of the URL is an icon that looks like this or depending on the version you are using. You can add the URL to the Source list by dragging the icon and dropping it in the Source list.

Typing a URL

You can type a URL directly by clicking the Add URL/File... button and then typing the URL in the presented dialog. Make sure that the URL starts with http://, otherwise iSiloX will not know that it is an HTTP URL. Click OK to add the URL to the Source list.

Adding Source File Paths

A file path specifies either a file located on your local hard drive or a file located somewhere on the network.

Dragging a file

You can add a source file to the list by dragging the file from the Finder or Desktop and dropping it in the Source list. You can also select more than one file at a time by dragging them all at once and dropping them in the Source list. iSiloX adds the path names of the files to the end of the list.

Typing a file path

You can type a file path directly by clicking the Add URL/File... button and then typing the path to the file in the presented dialog. In the dialog, you can also navigate to the file by clicking the Choose... button. Click OK to add the file to the Source list.

Editing Source Paths and URLs

To edit individual entries in the Source list, hold down the control key and click the entry to get the context menu, then click Edit. Make your changes and click OK to accept or Cancel to cancel any changes.

Removing Source Paths and URLs

To remove one or more of the source paths and URLs, select the ones you want to remove, then click Remove Selected URLs/Files. iSiloX presents a dialog to ask you to confirm that you want to remove the paths and URLs you selected.

Notes

Each source path and URL must be unique. If you attempt to add a duplicate source path or URL, iSiloX ignores the duplicate and does not add it to the list.
