"Paul says . . ."

Paul is a towering man with an amazingly soft voice.  In the forestry business there is plenty of time for Paul to reflect on the grandeur of the trees in his care.  "With a little ingenuity I've used the software's custom categories to map our special forestry lingo to the more common cultivation terms."  In the process he's found The Compleat Botanica is a great way to keep his notes organized.

Q:  I want to sort my collection. Is there an easy way to do that?

A:  Yes, sorting is part of the filtering process. After you've created the filter in the Filter View, switch to the Specimen View to see the records that match your criteria. To sort, simply click on a column header. Sorting by two columns is possible by simply clicking on another column.

To sort by botanical name, click on the far left-hand portion of the header area just to the left of the first named column.  see the full story.

Frequently asked questions

  The Compleat Botanica seems like a real winner but you're missing out on people like me who use Macintosh computers.

A:  The unfortunate reality of software is that it takes enormous amounts of time, talent, and money to develop and support more than one platform.  Only the largest software houses can do this well.  At Crescent Bloom we're continuing to improve the software and it's accompanying Web site to make it even more useful to the very diverse mixture of people whose interests include the plant kingdom.  For now that's where we'll stay focused.

Tips . . .

  How do I publish to the Web?

A:  The publish tool combines the best parts of the report generator, the export facility, and the print tags feature into one powerful tool which allows you to create HTML documents.  If you're interested in placing your specimen data on a Web site, whether for personal, professional, or commercial purposes, you'll find the publish tool is a fast and efficient way to do it.  If you're preparing a printed manual or a book of your plant data, the publish tool is a great way to produce a printed version of your collection.  If you're looking for alternative ways to print specimen tags, the publish tool has pre-defined templates for plant stakes, arboretum tags, and nursery placards.

The publishing tool uses a multi-step wizard to guide you through the process of creating Web pages, indexes, table of contents, labels, and much more.  To learn the basic procedures for publishing see the notes beginning with the Step by step guide to publishing.
