Scrape / Export logic needs clarification


I need to understand the logic of scrape / export and logic behind export settings.

1. I scraped everything for single project articles/images/videos/auth link/addins all fine and in place now.

2. Now I change projects settings Output tab to get MAX 6-12 500 char per paragraph articles and then export into HTML files with finame as Title.

3. Randomly I still get something like 1 paragraphs articles from here and there and sometimes paragraphs contained only one line etc etc.

Is there any sequence I need to follow?  Like should I always scrape after changed Output settings?

Thanks. Trying to understand how things work.

    The pure articles (text) is build after scraping. Any change on the output like number of words/algorithm/paragraphs will only have an influence when you re-scrape for new articles.
    However, changed like the number of images to insert or other additions to the text is inserted on preview/export.
  • thanks, got it, so to update the texts we must re-scrape? would be awesome if we could rebuild from local collection? I saw the checkbox there to use already collected but it seems like scraping anyway?

    you can do that already. Just uncheck all sources and use the option to use previous scraped content (at the top of the tab where you choose sources).
  • perfect, haven't thought about this option myself. thanks again
