On Step 3 of a Download in Logikcull, specifically under the Images section, there is an option to 'Name Images'.
There is a description of each option under the dropdown once selected, the options are below.
- with doc number as file name - Ending Bates/Doc Number as file name.
Example: Images > Folder 001 > Bates01.pdf, Bates04.pdf, etc. *You will set this bates/doc number in Step 4 of the Download*
- with original file name - Original file name with extension.
Example: Images > Folder 001 > Folder Bates/Doc Number > name.pdf
- with suffixed doc number as file name - Suffixed Bates/Doc Number as file name.
Example: Images > Folder 001 > bates01.pdf, bates02_001.pdf, bates02_002.pdf, bates03.pdf, etc.
📢 Pro Tip: the Suffixed doc number as file name setting is useful for privilege log creation and tracking, or similar situations where the goal is to maintain a 1:1 ratio between the number of documents and the numbering system, regardless of the number of pages for each individual document.
- with imported bates number as file name - Images will be named with imported bates number as file name (imported from database uploads).
Example: Images > Folder 001 > Folder LGK Bates/Doc Number > ImportedBates01.pdf
Why does Logikcull add in extra folders?
Good question! We do this to avoid any file names overlapping. For example, you chose to name images with original file names - what if more than one document is named index.html? Separating out into folders avoids this confusion.
Logikcull also aims to keep families intact when we export documents; e.g., Folder 001 with 60 documents and Folder 002 with 100 documents. This is in an effort to keep the family structure intact.
Can I move all these images into one folder?
Definitely - you can do this once the production is downloaded. If you wanted to try and copy the items to a single folder, assuming you used PDF as the image format, you can browse to the IMAGES folder then...
Use the Windows explorer search tool (per attached screenshot), enter pdf, and this should provide a listing of all the pdf files within the image folder. You can then select to copy them all to a new folder.
Use the Apple search bar (per attached screenshot), enter pdf and click the name of the folder from which you want to extract files. This should provide a listing of all the pdf files within the image folder. You can then select to copy them all to a new folder.
