Data Layout Details Dialog


This dialog, launched by clicking the Details button on Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker's Tracks dialog, lets you set various display properties for the contents of data CDs and DVDs you've imported. (The Details button will only be visible if you've selected a Data-CD-type data set from the Tracks dialog.)

In most cases, the changes you make here will only affect the current label you have selected for editing. If you've launched this dialog from the instant-label wizard, however, your changes will apply to all the labels in the current label set you're creating in the wizard. (If you want to edit per-label properties within a project you're creating from the wizard, you can finish the wizard, then select the label you want to change and bring up the Tracks dialog and click the More button.)

What to Display: This combo box lets you choose whether you want your tracks display to include file names, folder names, or both. 

Nesting Levels: This control lets you decide whether you want to display the contents of subfolders of the CD or DVD you've imported. If the level is 1, your label will only display file and folder names from the root level of the disc you've imported. If you set it to 2, it will include the root level plus the immediate contents of any subfolders at the root level. If you set it to 3, it will include the contents of the root level's subfolder's subfolders. And so on.

File Date Format: This control lets you decide how you want file dates to display. 

Folder Name Decoration: This control allows you to add special formatting to folder names so they're distinguishable from file names. If you select the "<Folder Name>" option, folder names will have greater than/less than symbols around them. If you select the "[Folder Name]" option, folder names will have square brackets around them. And if you select the "Names Only" option, folder names will have no special formatting, and will have the same appearance as file names.

Disc Summary: If you check this option, Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker will create a new text field that lists information about the contents of the disc you've imported. Please note that the disc summary can only retrieve information from a disc-import operation (by clicking the "Read CD" button on the Tracks dialog). If you enter new file, folder or file size information by hand, or edit the file information on the Tracks dialog, the disc summary will ignore it. 

The Disc Summary option will be disabled if you've launched this dialog from the instant-label wizard. If you'd like to add disc summaries to particular labels, you can finish the wizard, then launch the Tracks dialog and click on the More button to launch this dialog again.

Format: This control lets you select what information you want displayed in the disc summary. You can choose to display the total number of files and folders on the disc you've imported, the total size of all the files on the disc, and/or the range of dates (oldest and newest) of the files on the disc.
