AF: Advanced Features of AI
This module gives you ideas of where to find information on the more advanced features of Adapt It.
Where we are
You have been working on Adapt It using the basic features as needed and hopefully adapted the majority of your text. However there will no doubt be times when you need some other feature of Adapt It that hasn't been covered in this course.
Why this is important
It is impossible to cover all the features of a program in such a short course so it is important to know where you can find information on how to use the additional features. There is a range of materials available to help you when needed. This document gives brief instructions and points you to either the help or the resource documents included at the end of the course notes.
Editing the Knowledge base
Adapt It is able to automatically make some corrections to the knowledge base however there will be times when you need to makes changes.
Menu: Tools > Knowledge Base Editor (ctrl+k)
See Help topic: Editing a knowledge base
See: the documents entitled Adapt_It_Quick_Start.htm (page 23) and Adapt It Reference.doc (page 71).
After changing the knowledge base it is useful to perform a consistency check to ensure that the text is consistent with the changes
Menu: Edit > Consistency check
See Help topic: Consistency checking
See: the document entitled Adapt_It_Quick_Start.htm (Topic: How to recover from a corrupted knowledge base).
Printing a list of retranslations
It is useful to print a list of retranslations. This allows you to see if there are similar texts that are being retranslated consistently.
Menu: Tools > Retranslation Report
See Help topic: Retranslation report
See: the document entitled Adapt_It_Quick_Start.htm (Topics: Editing a retranslation and Removing a retranslation) and Adapt It Tutorial.doc (Topic: Retranslating a long section of source text).
Copying an adaptation project to another computer
If you want to copy your project to another computer you need to copy the adaptation folder and then rebuild or restore your knowledgebase.
Menu: File > Pack Document
