How to set different conversion options for each input file?
ReportGen has a list of interfaces responsible for file conversion. Open the “About” panel to see this list. Each interface may support more than one format. Some formats are possible in more than one interface – i.e. they are not unique disjoint sets. Leaving ReportGen without ticking the options box, so interface is just “Default Interface”, means that if there is only one interface possible for that format, it will go ahead automatically without any further user settings needed. This means that general default settings will be used for all parts. However, if more than one interface is possible, in “Default Interface” case, a dialog appears showing a list of possible interfaces, normally the first one is selected if you push OK. Now, maybe this part has not been clear: We have the idea of setting options for each part by ticking the checkbox next to the file name. For instance if you have two input files, you might want different settings for each part. You can also specify the interface using the drop-down menu which replaces “Default Interface”. After enabling options, then settings can be applied at two levels: (a) general default settings for all parts, and (b) individual settings for a particular part. As an example, when loading a point-cloud input file, type .PTS, there is only GRD Interface available. So leaving Default Interface or selecting options and setting GRD Interface will both cause identical operations. On the Gridding tab, these points can be treated by interpolation in “Point Cloud” or “IDW” methods. Because options are selected, use the object selector pull-down menu to select the specific point cloud file. Now change the interpolation mode. If you only change it for all parts as a general setting, it may have no effect because the file specific setting will override it.
