Structured Keywords
« on: March 21, 2017, 07:26:15 am »
Hi guys

I'm new to PM and trying to get my head around the structured keywords and importing a .txt file.

First off, are there any guides already out there that can take me through the process of setting up my structured keywords? The PM guide hasn't really helped.

I want to set up 8 main categories, then I have a couple of subcategories for each, and finally I want to land on the final list of all my keywords for that sub.

Any help greatly appreciated!

J

Use the "Save" button in the Structured Keywords panel.  Save to a file of your choosing.  Open it in a plain text editor.  Study the text file and compare its layout to what you see in the Structured Keywords panel.

Items in [ ] are categories that are never part of the keyword structure but are useful for organizational purposes.
Items in { } are synonyms
Items with no surrounding meta-characters are keywords and are applied in the path.

The file is hierarchical in nature and Tab characters are used to set the depth of the path.

You can create your own text file and use the "Load" button in the Structured Keywords panel to replace the current list with your own, or you can use the "Merge" button to merge your list with the current list.

If you need to enter keywords with accented (or any non-ASCII) characters, make sure your text editor is set to use UTF-8 encoding or PM will have trouble interpreting your extended characters.

Instead of editing a text file, you can also right-click in a column to edit with choices from a contextual menu that appears.  You can add items, siblings, etc.  You can also remove/rename/cut/change types of items.

HTH,

Perfect cheers mate!

So would this be correct?

If I click on Destinations > D 

then all the following keywords would be applied correct?

Destinations
   d
      {Beach}
        {Coast}
        {Natural}
        {Nature}
        {Sand}
        {Scenic}
        {Sea}
        {Water}
        {Luxury}
       
Detail
   Cuisine
      {Dining}
      {Drink}
      {Eating}
      {Food}
   Exterior
      {Exterior}
   Interior
      {Texture}
People
   Crew
   Fashion
      {Model}
   Lifestyle
      {Model}
Toys
   {Fun}
Yachts
   {Boat}

        {Luxury}
 ...

Hard to say without having your exact text file.  It appears you have an extra tab on {Beach}.  You can always load it up and try it out for yourself.

You're not using Tab characters consistently.  Some text editors let you see "invisibles" (white space, such as tabs, spaces, carriage returns, new lines, etc.) and you can see the difference between Tabs and spaces.  I have attached an image that illustrates what I see in my preferred text editor, BBEdit.
