Export CIB to OPT

To make a backup of your Concordance Image Base you can export the database's .cib file to an .opt formatted file.  The .opt file is a text file that contains the contents of the imagebase at the time of the export.  


If you plan to export the imagebase database more than once, make sure that you delete or rename the existing .opt file(s) prior to exporting since existing files will not be overwritten.  The exported .opt file does not include markup history.


Exported OPT files associated with a Concordance Native Viewer imagebase do not contain page count information.  Therefore, if you are loading an exported OPT file into Concordance Image, you must reset the document breaks in Concordance Image for the images to load properly.
