Display Metadata ASCII file

Selecting this menu choice will display the metadata ASCII file associated with the active theme. A metadata file is stored with an *.inf extension, and INSROP GIS will first search for a file with the same basename as the active theme, but with .inf instead of .shp as extension. If no such file is found INSROP GIS will then search for a file with the same basename as the field definition file of active theme, but with .inf instead of .fld as extension. If no such file is found either, INSROP GIS will then search for a file with the folder name of the active theme as basename and with a .inf extension.

As indicated above, one ASCII file may be used as metadata ASCII file to all themes in a folder, or a few ASCII files may be used as metadata ASCII files to several similar themes in a folder.
