Content Import

Take a look here to learn about content.

You can import contents via a CSV (comma separated) or TSV (tab separated) file. Your CSV file should contain one header row (the names of the columns don't matter, but the order does).

Example screenshot

Your file should contain 3 columns in this specific order.

  • identifier (optional)
  • text
  • page numbers (optional)

The identifier (1st column) is a unqiue ID that you assign to that piece of content. It can be anything as long as it is unique for that flatplan. This is useful if you want to reupload the same CSV file in the case of additional or updated content. That way content that you have already uploaded with that identifier will be updated, and content with a new identifier will be created.

If you leave off the identifier field, and you reupload the same file, you will get errors saying that the content already exists.

The text column (2nd column) is the content text you want to place onto one or more of your pages. The text needs to be unique within your uploaded content for that flatplan. You can only have one content text with that text. If you want to change the text in your CSV file and reupload, make sure that you assign a unique identifier to that row, else you will end up with a duplication error message.

The page numbers column (the 3rd column) is a semi-colon separated list of page numbers that you would like to place the content text onto. So if you want to place the text onto pages 3 and 8, then that column should have the value 3;8. If your page numbering on your flatplan uses Cover and IFC for example, then you can use those as your page numbers too. Or if you just want to give an indication, a page number could also be middle, or somewhere near the end. Or you can just leave it off. It is just a guide for you.

Note that content won't be automatically placed when you upload/import a file - you will still need to place the uploaded content yourself. The page numbers are merely a help or guide for you to make sure you place that content where you are planning on placing it.
