In Atlantis, you can perform a number of operations on multiple open documents: email them as attachment, combine into one document, and more.
As a first step, you should select the desired documents on the Document Bar. You can select individual documents by clicking them on the Document Bar while holding the Ctrl key. To select a range of documents, click the first document of the range, then press and hold the Shift key, and click the last document of the range. To select all open documents, you can right-click the Document Bar, and choose the "Select All Documents" command:
Selected documents display on the Document Bar with striped border:
The number of selected documents is reported through the right-click menu of the Document Bar:
To deselect individual selected documents, you can click them on the Document Bar while holding the Ctrl key. You can also use the "Deselect All Documents" command of the right-click menu of the Document Bar.
After selecting the documents of interest, you can perform actions on them by clicking the "Selected Documents" command of the right-click menu of the Document Bar:
These actions are explained in the table below:
|Save As Zip...||Puts selected documents into a ZIP file.|
|Send By Email...||Creates a new message in your email software, and attaches selected document files to it.|
|Send By Email Zipped...||Creates a new message in your email software, and attaches selected document files to it as a ZIP file.|
|Save As Document Project...||Creates a new document project file on your disk, and includes selected documents into it. You can open the document project through the "File | Document Project | Open..." command of the main menu
The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:
|Combine Into One Document||Merges the selected documents into a new document. As an example, you might wish to merge individual chapters of a book into one document before saving it as eBook.
The selected documents get merged according to their order on the Document Bar. You can reorder documents on the Document bar with drag & drop.
When a selected document includes hyperlinks to bookmarks from other selected documents, Atlantis automatically adjusts such hyperlinks in the combined document so that they get linked to the corresponding local bookmarks of the combined document.
|Word Count...||Displays a dialog with combined statistics of the selected documents:
|Close||Closes all selected documents.|
When there are selected documents on the Document Bar, some sections of the status bar of Atlantis report combined stats for all selected documents. The "File size" section of the status bar reports the combined file size of the selected documents:
The character/word count sections of the status bar also report combined counts for all selected documents in cases when there is no selection in the active document:
When a status bar section reports combined stats, it is displayed with a stripe border:
When multiple documents are selected on the Document Bar, you have an option to search them for text or formatting with the Find/Replace panel of the Control Board The Control Board is a component of the Atlantis GUI that brings together various tools and commands for document design.
