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.
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
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.
