Re: Vers 2: Re: [FHCNET] Indexing Whine (ignore if you like)
- Hopefully this is a known issue, as each Indexing project has an associated wiki page they keep updated with finds like this. I think they've set up things to link to the Wiki page from the Indexing software.

I had a few spare minutes after-shift and went over to do
some more indexing. Might've been a mistake on my part.
I'm working on the Louisiana marriage records.
When I reached the end of the 2nd half of the image, the
progress bar said 80% finished. ??? I found that by
clicking on the leftmost preset field I could bring up
another pair of pages. OK, finished that; repeated twice;
now says 90% complete.
Turns out, there is a missing image in the batch. I had two
copies of image 2 and none of image 3. I know this because I
had two copies of pp this'nthat but none of that+1 and
that+2. I had to finesse/game the system to get it to a
point where it would allow me to QC and upload.
I couldn't get to the feedback button from where I was, either.
It's not the handwriting, it's the software.
Yes, thanks, I do feel better now.
