With the publishing feature of Argentum Coolbase you will be able to:
Generated HTML content is formatted by using cascading style sheets (CSS) technology. CSS makes it possible to change formatting of the whole content by altering only one file, styles.css file. You can change every aspect of look and feel (mainly fonts and colors) by altering this file.
To publish, select items in the list pane, then run this command. All selected items, including their descendants, will be sorted and published under the target folder. You can customize publishing through the following settings:
The search dialog allows you search in the tree, as well as apply a filter to the tree.
The filter is applied, starting from the root. Applying the filter marks all items that match the criteria with a green mark and all items that have matching sub-items with a yellow round mark.
The search is controlled by the following settings:
Argentum Coolbase includes powerful item filtering options. This enables you to pick subsets of a tree. By a tree subset, we imply a selective set of branches and items of that tree. Filtering can be used mainly to search and view particular items and branches within the explorer and to process tree subsets. Typical applications are: writing a tree subset to the disk as a new tree and publishing a tree subset. The main advantage of filtering feature is that, in general, working with the filtered tree is much the same as working with the original, non-filtered one.
The results of a filter are visually annotated to an item, representing one of the four possible states, including one special state:
Therefore a filter classifies all items of the tree into three parts: blank, green, and yellow. After opening a tree all items of that tree are, by default, non-filtered. Coolbase then allows you to:
There is a special actualize dialog to actualize all of yellow items to match the current filtering of items. Yellow items may lose their real relationship to the green items after manual modification to the green marks e. g. marking and unmarking items with green marks. It's because yellow items are not automatically updated as a result of manual changes to green items. Yellow items are not automatically updated since this kind of operation may require a lot of processing time. This command rebuilds the yellow coded part of the filter so that it gets updated to the current state of filter's green part.
This dialog copies branches of the currently opened tree to an existing tree or a new one.
This feature can be very useful as it:
Before copying select items in the list pane. All selected items, including their descendants, will be saved under the nodal item of the specified tree. The copy/optimize operation can be customized through the following settings:
The lower section of the copy dialog shows you the progress of the tree currently being copied. You can interrupt this process at any moment.
The main window of Coolbase is called explorer and is divided into three views or panes: tree (left) pane, list (bottom) pane, and a property (top) pane.
There is a nice title bar at the top of the explorer window. It shows you the path to the currently selected item. There is a status bar at the bottom. It shows you a total number of items in the tree, a number of items in the current branch, a number of selected items in the current branch. It also shows you a number of items in green and yellow filters respectively in case you've switched to an active filtered mode.
Right-clicking the mouse in the list pane or property pane produces a context sensitive menu. All of the options listed here are accessible through the main menu and are explained in the relevant parts of this documentation.
In explorer you may also use "drag & drop" to move items or item groups from one branch into another. It can be done by selecting the required items in the list pane and moving them over to the desired item in the tree pane with the mouse.
You can change current sorting in the list pane by clicking over the property column header. Subsequent clicks will cause the sort order to reverse.
You may change the dimension of panes relative to each other by dragging their floating dividers with the mouse pointer.
Customize Coolbase with the options dialog. This dialog has three pages:
