  3. In the Run Sequence Confirmation dialog box, verify that the sequence you selected is the one you want, and click OK.
  4. In the Select Files To Process dialog box, select the files that you want, and then click Select. (In Windows, these files must be in the same folder.)
  5. If a message asks for additional input for a specific command in the sequence, select the options you want and click OK.
