Does the gui and the command line work together?

Added by S. McKay 8 months ago

Hi,
Short synopsis: If I process a project partly through the gui and partly through command line, does anything get messed up?

Long story: I often deal with projects involving hundreds of students and multiple graders (anywhere from 5-15). I have created scripts that create pdfs of a single question so that graders can mark them on a tablet. Once the graders are done, I need to run those files through AMC. Typically this involves me checking the online directory periodically to see if someone has uploaded anything. I'd like to automate this, so a script will watch the directory and process files through AMC (on the command line) as they come in.

So,If I process via command line, will the gui pick up those changes (I am thinking not unless I restart amc, but it could be worse than that).

Thanks,
S.M.

The GUI calls the command line tools when needed, and then update the views. So the GUI will pick up your changes but you need to restart AMC.
