I can't see the CtrlPrint Frames option in the Tagger.
If you can't see CtrlPrint Frames as an option in the Layers dropdown, an InDesign user needs to create a new chapter version of the relevant chapters to make them visible in the Tagger.
In some cases, the reason why you can't see CtrlPrint Frames is because the document contains grouped objects. Please make sure that the document is prepared according to our instructions on our page Prepare Your Documents for Text block Tagging with CtrlPrint Frames.
How many layers can/should I create?
The default number of layers for a project is now set to 10 including CtrlPrint Frames. This can be changed on the server and can be set to 100 layers including CtrlPrint Frames. Our recommendation is to use CtrlPrint Frames for textblock tags that are in the middle of the granularity spectrum and to add extra layers for textblock tags that have a wider as well as more narrow accounting meaning.
When can/should I start textblock tagging?
The functionality for textblock tagging exist in the Tagger, we are always working with improvements so we will release new updated versions with more functionality continuously.
When tagging has occurred in many different layers at an early point, and the document has been changed in text and layout there can be unresolved mapping errors when opening the document in the Tagger. This means that the Tagger is not able to place out the tags that has been saved in an earlier version. Tagging that has been carried out in CtrlPrint Frames is not as sensitive to changes in text and layout, so a recommendation is to start with tagging here and save wider and narrower tagging for the end of the project.
Can I tag the same text twice in the same layer?
No, if you are highlighting text or a table that has already been tagged in one layer you will get a red strike-through, please follow the instructions of Using Layers and carry out the tagging in another layer.
Can I use different tags in the same layer?
Yes, you can. You don't need to create a new layer for every new tag you are using (unless you already have tagged text content once in the same layer and wants to tag the text/part of it with another tag.)
Why are some layers displayed in bold in the Tagger?
Depending on which page you are currently placed on, the Tagger will mark all layers in bold that contains a tag on this specific page.
How do continuations work?
A continuation is a way to use a tag on many different places in a document. There are a number of ways to implement a continuation:
- It gets automatically created when using a tag on a story on either the same page or across multiple pages.
- It gets automatically created when creating an ESEF report on CtrlPrint and merging chapters where the same textblock tag exist. These tags don't have to be on the same layer name on the different chapters.
- When manually tagging the same textblock tag twice and selecting yes on the below question in the Tagger:
Can I use the same tag (continuation) in different layers?
No, if one tag is used in one layer and the same tag is applied on a different layer (in the same document) you will get the below message displayed in the Tagger.
If I add a story/text frame to a thread in InDesign, that is already tagged in the Tagger, does the new story/text frame get automatically tagged?
No, the Tagger will not automatically create a continuation when a story/text frame has been added to a thread. You will need to manually apply the tag to the added story/text frame.
