This documentation refers to PhraseExpress v17 beta. The documentation for the production version 16 is available here.
To import external files into PhraseExpress:
- Open the main program window.
- Highlight the desired target folder in the phrase tree view.
- Selected the file(s) to import.
Alternatively, drag & drop the file(s) into the desired target phrase folder in the phrase tree view.
Depending on the file type, PhraseExpress shows a selection of following options:
|Imports the entire file contents as a whole.|
Splits the source file line-by-line and generates separate phrases for each imported line.
PhraseExpress creates a new phrase with a macro function that opens the external file with it's associated default program (defined in the Microsoft Windows settings).
Example: If you import a Microsoft Excel .XLS file this way, PhraseExpress will launch Excel and load the Excel spreadsheet.
