Hi,
There are two problems here. All these are related to GLI.

First at all, as Axel Schild's described: adding new files/removing files would make GLI imports all old files again. On contrary as it was described in user and developer manuals, this thing should not happen - just new files should be processed for saving time and allowing collection users accessing the old collection during the building time.

Secondly, in my case: I don't add or remove any files from my collection. I would like to change different options in the tabs Design and Enrich of GLI for different kinds of output. For example, I would like to hide the icon linking to the extracted texts as a result I would have to change the Vlist.

In my case, would this happens as you said: "you do not have to rebuild or reindex the collection - these changes take effect immediately."? Sorry that I'm rebuilding my collection now and can not experiment with your suggestion.

Regards,

If you just want to change the appearance (either by changing some of the format statements in the collection's config file, or by modifying some of greenstone's macro files), then you do not have to rebuild or reindex the collection - these changes take effect immediately.

I don't know if you can change these from within the GLI without rebuilding though - I'm not very familiar with it.
