MarcEdit 5.0 update

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

I uploaded a small change to the MarcEdit program.  It includes the following changes:

  1. Stub code added to accommodate a new input interface.  It’s not finished yet — but I’ve started making some code revisions to make it easier to implement.
  2. Setup File Changes
  3. Additions to the language file
  4. Custom Sort Feature in MarcEditor
  5. Misc.

The custom sort feature in the MarcEditor is in response to a user request.  Basically, the user wanted to be able exclude groups of fields from the Sort feature.  This allows you to do that.  The tool lets you mark items for exclusion for sort, but will sort the group within the list of fields.  So for example (pseudo-code):

Original Field order:

LDR
001
050
200
245
090
300
650  banana
650  apple
600
650  coffee

These items will be sorted to the following order:

LDR
001
050
090
200
245
300
600
650  banana
650  apple
650  coffee

Anyway — the Custom Sort Wizard looks like the following:

To make it work — you just select the field that you want to exclude and move it to the Exclude Field list.
