This is the default setting when opening the “Assign Page Images View” window once the page images have been selected (see Selecting Page Images Page Images}) ,
By default mz3Tool interprets the last found number in the file name as page number.
Example of a picture selection
The following example shows images that have been numbered differently (wildly copied).
They should build the pages of an empty “double-page book”. In a double page book the left and right page side of an opened book are combined to a double page. And one Page Image (double width) is used for one double page.
Exception: The two cover pages (1st and last page) always are standard single pages.
The following example shows some “unexpected” results, marked in different colors.
Case 1: Status
ok: number (marked green)
If the determined page number is within the page range of the book, the status is set to
OK: number, and the file name used for the copy of the image is named accordingly.
Ideally, the file name contains a valid image number, like with the green-marked images. The resulting valid page number is marked with a green frame.
For books with single pages, the image number is the same as the page number.
For books with double pages, i.e. where the left and right pages of an open book are combined to one “logical” double page, the page number is always the one of the left (single) page.
Based on these rules the correct page sequence in this example is “1, 2, 4, 6, 8, …”.
Case 2: Status
ok: index (highlighted in orange)
If the assigned page number is outside the page range of the book, the status is set to
OK: index and the number in the file name is ignored.
The images are assigned to the page number set as number in the file name (in case of “sort by extracted #” selected and the checkbox
used as Image Number being NOT marked).
Or the number in the file nae is interpreted as image number (in case of “the checkbox
used as Image Number being marked).
The images are assigned to consecutive page numbers according to the selected sort.
The sort can be based on the file name (see Page Number by Index), the modification date (see Sort by Modification Date or the creation date (see Sort by Creation Date).
The sort direction can be reversed via the
sort up/down button.
Case 3: Status
double pgNbr (marked red)
If the page number already was assigned, that file is not accepted and marked as “@double pg#@.
