2.3.3.3. Image-files

Docmenta supports following image formats:
FormatMIME-typeAllowed extensions
BMP image/bmp .bmp
CGM image/cgm .cgm
GIF image/gif .gif
IEF image/ief .ief
JPEG image/jpeg
.jpeg  .jpg  .jpe
PNG image/png .png
SVG image/svg+xml .svg
TIFF image/tiff .tif
A file of any other format has to be converted into one of the above formats, if it shall be included as an image in the content of the product documentation. Nevertheless you can store images in any other format as normal files as described in Section 2.3.3.4, “Data-file”.
Images which are included in the content of the documentation should be stored in image-folders (see Section 2.3.3.6, “Image-folder”). Image-folders will show a thumbnail gallery preview of the contained images. Nevertheless, it is also possible to upload an image to a normal file-folder. You can upload an image with the "Upload File" function in the context menu (see Section 2.3.4.4, “File upload and download”).
Image filenames
Docmenta imposes restrictions on the naming of image files. The reason for this is, that Docmenta uses the filename (excluding the file extension) as the alias name used to reference the image. Therefore, the image filename can only consist of letters, digits, underscore (_), dash (-), question-mark (?) and exclamation-mark (!). See Section 2.3.3.5, “Inclusion-nodes” and Section 2.3.8.7, “Images” on how to include images in the content of the product documentation.
Properties
An image has the same properties than a content- or section-node (see Section 2.3.3.1, “Section-nodes”), e.g. it has a title, an alias name, an applicability expression, a workflow status and a progress value. The workflow status of an image can be manually set by the user to indicate whether work on the image is already finished. The progress value can be used to provide an estimation in percentage of how much of the work has already been done.
