(4) Processing contents of arrangement order management device (change of page arrangement in file)
Next, processing contents of the arrangement order management apparatus according to the present embodiment will be described. In the present embodiment, a case where the order of pages in a file is changed will be described with reference to a flowchart. The following processing is realized by a program running on the CPU 320, but dedicated hardware can also be used.

  FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing the processing contents of the arrangement order changing process when changing the arrangement order of the pages in the file. It is assumed that the file whose arrangement order is to be changed is already stored in the file storage unit 421 and the keyword is already stored in the keyword storage unit 422. In the arrangement order changing process, first, the thumbnail generation unit 402 generates thumbnails for each page of the selected file (S101), and the display content control unit 403 first displays an initial screen on the display unit 312 (S102).

  FIG. 8 is a diagram illustrating an example of an initial screen displayed on the display unit 312 of the PC 31. On the initial screen, a keyword display area 121, a thumbnail display area 122, an apply button 123, a sub-order clear button 124, and a mouse cursor 125 are displayed. The keyword display area 121 displays a list of keywords stored in the keyword storage unit 422. In the present embodiment, any of the keywords displayed in the keyword display area 121 is selected and associated with each page. Hereinafter, this association processing is also referred to as “keyword addition”. A keyword can be added to a page by dragging and dropping the selected keyword onto any thumbnail. It is also possible to specify a plurality of pages by dragging and add the same keyword.

  FIG. 9 is a diagram illustrating an example of the contents of the keyword storage unit 422. In addition to the keyword 4221, the keyword storage unit 422 stores a keyword 4222 in the immediately preceding order and a keyword 4223 in the immediately following order as information indicating the arrangement order indicated by each keyword. In the example of FIG. 9, after changing the order of the pages, the keyword indicating the page to be arranged at the top part is “cover”, and the keyword indicating the page to be arranged at the last part is “back cover”. It is. Then, as a keyword indicating that the page is arranged between the two pages, “table of contents”, “text chapter 1”, “text chapter 2”, and “text chapter 3” are defined after “cover”.

  Next to “Chapter 3”, pages without keywords are arranged, followed by “index” and “back cover” in order of unadded pages. Note that the order of arrangement between pages to which the same keyword is added is defined by a sub-order to be described later.

  Now, returning to the flowchart of FIG. 7, the input acquisition unit 404 is displayed in the keyword display area 121 by the mouse drag input as the operation unit 311, specifically, the mouse cursor 125 shown in FIG. 8. When it is detected that any of the keywords is selected and dragged and dropped on any of the thumbnail images displayed in the thumbnail display area 122 (S103: YES), the arrangement setting management unit 405 Keyword addition processing is performed (S104). Specifically, the correspondence relationship between the keyword and the page as the arrangement setting information is acquired and stored in the arrangement setting storage unit 423. FIG. 10A is a diagram illustrating an example of the contents of the arrangement setting information.

  Next, 1 is added to the sub-order of the selected keyword (S105). The sub-order is information indicating the arrangement order among pages to which the same keyword is added. As shown in FIG. 10A, the page number before the change process of each page, the added keyword, and the sub-order are stored as the arrangement setting information.

  The sub-order is incremented by 1 when the same keyword is added to the page with the initial value set to 0 (S106). In principle, the sub-order is incremented in the order in which keywords are added, and multiple pages, such as when a keyword is dragged to multiple pages, or when a keyword is dragged with multiple pages selected. If keywords are added at once, the order in which the pages are selected is held, and the sub-order is incremented in the selected order. If a keyword is added again to a page where a keyword has already been added, the keyword is overwritten and updated so that the sub-order is last. For pages without keywords, the current order is maintained.

  When the application button 123 is pressed (S107: YES), the page arrangement order is changed by changing the page property or file property according to the arrangement setting information (S108). FIG. 10B is a diagram showing an example of the content of the property after the change when the page order is held as a file property. For pages without keywords, the current order is maintained, but sub-orders indicating the current order may be added even without keywords. The sub-order is preferably provided with a function that can be corrected before the actual property change. In this embodiment, a sub-order clear button 124 is provided, and when the button is pressed (S109: YES), the sub-order corresponding to the selected keyword is cleared (S110). If any keyword is selected and, for example, the right mouse button is clicked (S111: YES), the thumbnail images of the pages to which the keyword is added are displayed in the thumbnail display area 122 in the order of the sub-order. (S112). Here, a new sub-order can be given by sequentially selecting each thumbnail image again. In this state, the sub-order may be changed by dragging and dropping the thumbnail image.

(Embodiment 2)
Next, a second embodiment of the present invention will be described. In the second embodiment, when binding a file to a binder, the order is set. A binder is a collection of files and can define the arrangement of included files as a binding order. Conventionally, the operation of binding files to a binder is to select each file to be bound to a binder, drag and drop it to the binder, register it, and open the binder and rearrange it if the binding order of the files is inappropriate. A complicated operation with many mouse operations is required. Since the present embodiment is obtained by replacing the page of the first embodiment with a file, different points will be described below.

  FIG. 11 is a diagram illustrating an example of the initial screen according to the present embodiment. In the present embodiment, an icon display area 126 is arranged instead of the thumbnail display area 122. In the icon display area 126, icons indicating the respective files are displayed. Similar to the first embodiment, the correspondence between a keyword and a file can be input by dragging the mouse cursor 125.

  When the apply button 123 is pressed, the files to which the keywords are added are gathered to form a binder. FIG. 12 is a diagram showing an example of the contents of the keyword storage unit 422 in the present embodiment. The difference from the first embodiment is that the arrangement order of unadded files to which no keyword is added is not defined. This is because only the file to which the keyword is added is bound to the binder. Similar to the first embodiment, the sub-order can be added and the order can be changed by changing the property. The property is defined in the binder property, and the file Information indicating the arrangement order in the binder can also be held as a property.

(Embodiment 3)
Registration of a new keyword will be described as a third embodiment of the present invention. When registering a new keyword, the keyword management unit 407 automatically sets the immediately preceding keyword 4222 and the immediately following keyword 4223 when storing the new keyword in the keyword storage unit 422.

  FIG. 13 is a diagram showing an example of a screen displayed on the display unit 312 when registering a new keyword. The screen as shown in the figure can be displayed when the mouse cursor 125 is moved to a part other than the part where the keyword is displayed in the keyword display area 121 and, for example, an operation such as a double click or a right click is performed. It is. In the example shown in the figure, a new keyword is registered between “Chapter 1” and “Chapter 2”. On the new keyword registration screen, a new registration keyword input box 127 is displayed, and a keyword is input into the box 127 from the keyboard as the operation unit 311.

  FIG. 14 is a diagram showing the contents of the keyword storage unit 422 after “Preface” is registered between “Contents” and “Chapter 1” as a new keyword from the state of FIG. The keyword management unit 407 changes the keyword 4223 immediately after the keyword “table of contents” to “preface”, and also changes the keyword 4222 immediately before the keyword “one chapter of the text” to “preface”. Then, the immediately preceding keyword 4222 of the new keyword “Foreword” is set to “Contents”, and the immediately following keyword 4223 is set to “Chapter 1”.

  Note that registration of a new keyword may be performed on a screen as shown in FIG. In this screen, the order in which the new keywords indicate is not specified by the mouse cursor 125 but by specifying the immediately preceding keyword in the immediately preceding keyword input box 128. If the immediately preceding keyword is designated, the keyword management unit 407 automatically determines the immediately following keyword. Of course, a keyword may be specified immediately after. Note that it is possible to change the order of the keywords indicated by dragging and dropping the keywords in the keyword display area 121. In this case, the keyword management unit 407 automatically selects the immediately preceding keyword or the immediately following keyword. Can be changed. In addition, the method for holding the order of the keywords is not limited to the method of holding the immediately preceding keyword and the immediately following keyword, and each keyword (including keywords not added) includes numbers, symbols, and other information indicating the order. Can also be held in association with each other.
