Managing Imagebases

The Concordance Desktop Image Base (CIB) database is a SQLite database that stores information on all native documents and image files in a Concordance Desktop database. The .cib file stores information such as folder path location, markup history, and preferences settings for the viewer.

As a best practice, make sure that all users are logged out of the database prior to using the Image Base Management tools.

Do not delete the .CIB file. Doing so can corrupt the database. The .CIB file contains vital information that the database requires in order to allow the database to be opened and its records to be accessed.

Managing the Concordance Desktop Image Base includes the following:

Renaming/deleting media paths and folders

Renaming/deleting media keys (aliases)

Exporting the imagebase database to an OPT file

Calculating or updating document page count

Converting Concordance Desktop Viewer Imagebases to Concordance Viewer

If you are on the Concordance Desktop server machine, and the Image Base Management tools are not available from the File > Administration menu, then you have not been given access privileges.  If you need access, please contact your Concordance Desktop Administrator.
