To find out what an option does, hover the mouse over it: a tool-tip explaining the option will appear. Some options are 'optional': these are presented with a check box which must be ticked on for the option to be used. Others are 'required': these have no check box, and a value must be given before the download is carried out. </Text>

    9090<Text id="39g-1">There are two other buttons: "Preferences", which links to the connection section of the Preferences where proxy settings can be edited; and "Clear Cache", which deletes all previously downloaded files. You will need to set up proxy information if you use a proxy server to connect to the Internet. If authentication is needed when a download is being processed, the proxy server will prompt for username and password.  The Librarian Interface does not store passwords between sessions.</Text> 
    9191<Text id="40">Files are downloaded into a folder called <AutoText key="glidict::Tree.DownloadedFiles"/> (only present when downloading is enabled), and can be used in any collections.  Files are named by their full web URL (for Web downloads) or a combination of URL and option values (for other download types). A new folder is created for each host, followed by others for each part of the path. This ensures that each file is distinct.</Text> 
    92 <Text id="42">The download list has an entry for each download processed. Each entry has a text region that gives details of the task along with a progress bar showing current activity. Three buttons appear to the left of each entry. "Pause" is used to pause a task. "View Log" opens a window showing the download log file. "Close" terminates the download and removes the task from the list.  </Text>

    156 <Text id="exm-2">Metadata database file types, such as MARC, CDS/ISIS, BibTex, Refer and ProCite can be imported into Greenstone but their metadata cannot be viewed or edited in the Librarian Interface.

     156<Text id="exm-2">Metadata database file types, such as MARC, CDS/ISIS, BibTex, Refer and ProCite can be imported into Greenstone but their metadata cannot be viewed or edited in the Librarian Interface. To see or edit any metadata, you need to go back to the program that created the file. Alternatively, you can "explode" the file in the Librarian Interface and view or edit the metadata afterwards.</Text> 
    157157<Text id="exm-3">"Exploding" a metadata database file splits it into individual records, with viewable and editable metadata. This process is irreversible: the original metadata file is deleted.</Text> 
    158158<Text id="exm-4">Explodable files have a green icon in the Collection tree. To explode one, right click it and choose "Explode metadata database". A popup window shows options for the exploding process. The first option ("plugin") specifies the plugin to be used for exploding. In most cases, only one plugin will process a particular type of file, but in some cases, where different file types share the same filename extension, there may be two plugins that both process files with that extension. The "input_encoding" option can be used to specify the encoding of the database. The "metadata_set" option specifies the metadata set to which the new fields generated by exploding should be added. If none is specified, you will be prompted for what to do with each new field in the database: add it as a new element to an existing metadata set, merge with another element, or ignore.</Text>
