8. Menu Job
add chapter

 All functions marked with * are also available as toolbar icons.

Some functions in the “Job” menu can only be used via the start interface. All others are available via the job interface. Functions that are currently not usable are grayed out. BCS-2 Professional and Office differ with regard to the available functions:

Import job from a job file: Invokes the Windows file load dialog to open a previously saved BCS-2 file. BCS-2 loads the images and metadata contained in the file for further processing.

 Requirement for using the metadata: The workflow to which the job belongs must exist. Otherwise, only the images of the original job can be edited.

Create new Job from eL Export-Container (only Professional or with the module “MyBib Connector“): Opens the form for importing a “MyBib eL” job in ZIP format.

During the import, BCS-2 adopts the images and structure data from the “Metadata.XML” file. The following functions can be activated for the import:

  • create any missing indexes: create any missing indexes for meta-datafound in the eL Container: BCS-2 automatically creates indices that are missing in the current workflow. Applies only to MyBib eL workflows with an index (key table dyn. properties).
  • import meta data: import meta data and set the corresponding indexes: BCS-2 reads the job metadata from the “Metadata.XML” file and stores them in the associated job index.
  • import OCR Files: try to import corresponding OCR files as well: BCS-2 accepts existing OCR data in eL format and outputs it when the job is transmitted, provided the images have not been edited in BCS-2. In this case, the OCR is lost.

Create new Job: BCS-2 creates a new, empty job for the active workflow in the job list.

 *New Job: BCS-2 creates a new job and opens the job editing window.

 create Jobs by Import… (only Professional): Opens the “Create job by import” window for configuring the batch import.

 create Jobs by MyBib eDoc orders… (nur Professional):  Opens the “Create job by MyBib eDoc orders” dialog for configuring the batch import (requirement: MyBib Connector and workflow).

Transfer Job: BCS-2 transfers the job according to the default settings in the workflow.

Upload Job into file: BCS-2 saves the currently open job in a file. By default, the file name consists of the name of the job plus “_sav” plus the file extension bcs2v6: JOB_00000160_sav.bcs2v6.

Delete Job: BCS-2 delete marked job.

 *Close Job: BCS-2 closes the currently open job, exits job mode and calls up the start page with the job list.

 *Transfer Job: Transfer of the job according to the presets in the workflow.

 *Apply an Operation on the Job:  see below – Batch Processing section

 *Import Images into the Job: Imports the images stored in a selected folder into the current job. Optionally, BCS-2 also considers the subdirectories of the folder for the import.

Assign Barcode-Area to Page-Index: Assigns a barcode to the page index.

Batch processing (batch operations)

Perform operation on the job

Almost all image post-processing functions can also be carried out in batch processing. Use the upper drop-down list of the opened window to select the required function, use the lower one to determine for which images BCS-2 will carry out the operation.

Folgende Nachbearbeitungsoptionen bietet BCS-2 an:

  • Apply Masking: Cropping of the images according to the mask or area setting.
  • Apply Multi-Masking: Crops the selected areas of the images.
  • Apply Splitting: Perform the page split for all images with a dividing line.
  • Perform OCR in tiles: BCS-2 carries out text recognition in the marked areas. The results of the OCR can be called up and edited via the properties dialog of the respective area.
  • Perform OCR for all pages (only Professional): Execution of an OCR run based on the OCR settings for (all) pages of the job. As a result, the OCR data is available for export to a text file.
  • Perform OCR for all Pages, create the MyBib eL format (only Professional):  After the OCR run, the OCR data is available for export in eL format.
  • Perform OCR for all Pages, create the MyBib eL format , create the OCR text as well (only Professional): During the OCR run, BCS-2 generates TXT and eL files that are output when the job is transmitted.
  • Binarize Image using each Image’s threshold: BCS-2 converts the images into 1-bit images, using the stored binarization threshold (default value 128).
  • Rotate Images (90°, 180°, 270°, 1°, -1°): Rotates the images by 90°,180° or 270°.
  • Inverte Images: BCS-2 inverts the image colors.
