Sample linked list configuration file

This topic contains a sample configuration file that can be used to understand the naming conventions when creating predefined metadata entries that should be mapped to different fields in FotoStation.

Sample file

To test this file in your configuration, copy and paste the content and store in a plain text file named 
sample200_201_202_203-204-205-206(207).txt 

 

In Windows, it should be stored in C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\FotoWare\FotoStation\Configuration\Localized\<Language>\Metadata\QuickLists

On the Mac, store it in ~/Library/Preferences/FotoWare/FotoStation/Configuration/Localized/<language>/Metadata/Quick Lists

 


# This is a sample linked list configuration file. It automatically
# fills in 'custom fields' 1 - 8 (IPTC #200 - #207) Remove the
# 'sample' prefix from the file name to see how it works
#
# The filename defines how the data on each level in the hierarchy is
# mapped to IPTC fields.  E.g the text on the first level (aaa) is
# mapped to the first number in the file name (IPTC #200), the text on
# the second level (bbb) is mapped to the second number in the file
# name (IPTC #201), etc...  Note the difference between underscore
# '_', dash '-' and numbers enclosed in parenthesis '( )'
#
# Underscore         -      New level in the hierarchy
# Dash             -    Semi-colon separated text on the same level
# Number in parenthesis    -    Map the alias (after =) to this field
#
# In the example below, 'aaa' has an alias, 'Alias for aaa' which will
# be visible in the list. However, 'aaa' goes into IPTC field #200. If
# you rename the file to '200(209)_201.....', 'Alias for aaa' will
# also be copied into IPTC field #209.
#
# The expression in the leaf node shows how multiple 'hidden' texts
# are mapped to multiple IPTC fields.  'hhh' is the 'alias' that is
# visible in the tree and is also mapped to IPTC field #207.  If 'hhh'
# should not be copied to field #207, rename the file to:
# '200_201_202_203-204-205-206.txt'
#
#200    201     202     203 204 205 206(207)
# |      |       |       |   |   |   |   |
# |      |       |       |   |   |   |   |
