  • Patent number: 6862603
    Abstract: A file management system, a file management method, and a storage medium by which a higher productivity is achieved by efficient document indexing. In copying index data, a copy is created from text data of an application such as a text editor or a spread sheet or from index data displayed on a document list of a document management system. A range for pasting index data is selected by a pointing device or keyboard operation. The selected range includes a record as a search result, a record in which a new document is recorded, and a pre-index record. If a user gives an instruction on pasting index data, the obtained index data is checked to be recordable data for a field of the selected cell. If it is recordable data, index data record processing is performed.

  • Patent number: 6594650
    Abstract: A document management system having enhanced operability so that a plurality of documents can be processed at a time by integrating a search operation, an image recording operation, and an index input operation. In the document management system of the present invention, input search conditions are transmitted to a search portion, which finds out a document satisfying the search conditions from a document data base via an index data recording management portion and outputs the result to a document list control portion. The document list control portion prepares a document list from the result and displays it in a document list display portion. For a new record processing, image data on a manuscript read by a scanner is output to an image control portion. The image control portion records the image data into an image recording portion and reports new document creating information to the document list control portion.

  • Patent number: 5881214
    Abstract: There is disclosed an image searching apparatus capable of searching an image stored in a memory medium, corresponding to a search image, selected from the plural search images registered in advance. The apparatus can generate a synthesized image, including the registered search images, together with marking areas, to be marked by the operator for selecting the search image, and prints the synthesized as a marking sheet which is to be marked by the operator and then read by the apparatus again, whereby the apparatus effects the image search, based on the marking provided on the marking sheet.

  • Patent number: 5765089
    Abstract: A discrimination device and method that generates a control signal used for controlling a color image processing apparatus that processes color image data in a first color space and generates color image data in a second color space different from the first space. The color image data in the first color space is input and then a discrimination is performed to determine whether an image represented by the input color image data includes a specific image. A control signal is generated based on the discrimination result.

  • Patent number: 5323514
    Abstract: A cord stopper is used for releasably fastening a cord thereto. The cord stopper has a housing having a longitudinal cavity extending longitudinally therein and a pair of through apertures formed transversely through the peripheral wall at opposed positions. An insert member is fitted in the cavity so as to be reciprocally movable along the cavity and having a through hole transversely therethrough. A biasing member is provided for normally urging the insert member outward of the cavity so that when the insert member is thrust into the cavity against the bias of the biasing member, the through hole comes substantially into alignment with the through apertures for insertion of the cord therethrough. The cord stopper further includes means for temporally locking the insert member to the housing with the through hole of the insert member substantially aligned with the through apertures of the housing for facilitating a cord-threading operation.
