Index by motion (D)

Parent Previous Next

Signs have many different kinds of motion. You can index signs by motion. Then people can search for signs by motion.

Be sure you understand about motion before you try to index it.

To index a sign by motion, first enter edit mode: click Edit sign in the toolbar. After you are in edit mode, if you see words instead of parameters, click Parameters in the toolbar. 

Click the tab.

If you can't see the motion tab, use the scroll buttons on the right to scroll the tabs left and right. To see all the tabs at once, you can adjust the size of the window or the column.

You will see several groups of icons. You can use them to describe the motion of a sign. You can hover the mouse over an icon to see a description. For more explanation, see this topic. There are numbers under each icon. They show how many signs already use that motion parameter. 

Double-click each parameter that describes the sign's motion, or drag its icon to the indexing area. Choose as many parameters as you need to describe the sign.
