To edit the information associated with your portraits, go to the Index tab to locate the portrait(s) that require changes to their information.
To edit the information related to a single portrait, simply select it. The information associated with the portrait is displayed to the right side.
Make any corrections or additions as required by typing into the fields under the categories. For instance, correct typos to first and last names or add missing information to empty categories.
You can make corrections before or after generating your composites. A prompt will appear when you next return to the Editor asking if you want to apply the changes to your project, and you may need to re-generate your composite set to apply the changes to finished layouts.
To make changes to multiple portraits at the same time, multi-select them.
- to select all portraits in the current view, click SELECT ALL over the portrait display area
- to select particular portraits, click on the checkbox in the top left corner of the portrait individually.
The categories on the right side of the screen will only show shared information - so first and last names will never be displayed.
Edit shared information when using a multi-selection.
In this case, we will move the selected portraits to a different teacher group by typing in a new teacher's name.
If your imported data has many complicated mistakes in it - the wrong names are associated to portraits, the entire database is in all-caps, portraits are assigned to the wrong groups - it is best to fix the .csv file directly in a spreadsheet software or to reexport the database in your portrait management software. Memento Composites simply reads imported data - it is not a database management system so it is best to use software specific to this task.
