General Tab of Word Batch Replacer Options Dialog

Open password and Unprotect password input text fields allow you to specify passwords for opening and unprotecting the documents so that Word Batch Replacer will be able to process them. Leave these fields blank if documents to be processed are not password-protected. If you specify incorrect password, an exception will be generated during the attempt to load a document with that wrong password. For security reasons, all symbols in passwords are displayed as asterisks.

Directory processing options pertain to processing of folder items (that is, when an input item specifies a folder, not a single file). These options are hidden (or disabled) when you edit the processing options for a group of items that does not include any directory items. They are only visible (or enabled) when you either edit the default processing options, or your selection includes at least one directory item.

Include subfolders—this option lets you make Word Batch Replacer go recursively through all subdirectories of a given input directory.

File mask is a text input field where you can specify which files in the input folder must be processed. You can enter multiple file masks separated by semicolons. For example, to process all MS Word (.doc) and RTF (*.rtf) documents, enter “*.doc;*.rtf” (without quotes) in the input field. For details, read this topic on the filemask syntax.

Exclude files is a text input field where you can specify which files in the input folder will be skipped, even if they match the mask specified in “File mask” field. You can enter multiple file masks separated by semicolons. For example, to skip temporary files left over by MS Word, enter “~*.doc” (without quotes) in the input field.
