Navigating in 3 Dimensions

It’s standard fare to page through a displayed document, that is, page by page. But do you also know some other ways to navigate? DocuWare‘s Viewer offers three.

 

 

You might have wondered why the navigation area in the DocuWare Viewer is so big. Isn’t it enough to see a page in a document and maybe hop to the one before, after or maybe the last one? Nope -  because DocuWare offers three completely different dimensions for navigation, both directly above the displayed document and in the toolbar.

 

1. Navigating Through Documents

This will let you jump from from one document to another. If a displayed document is in a document tray, the navigation refers to the documents of that particular tray. If you display a document from a result list, it lets you move between documents in that result list.

 In this example, the displayed document is the twelfth one in a list of 33 documents

In this example, the displayed document is the twelfth one in a list of 33 documents. The arrows have the usual meaning: << first document, >> last document, < previous document and > following document. In the input field, you can also directly enter the number of the desired document.

2. Navigating Through Files

A document in DocuWare can consist of several files – for example, when you have clipped together a proposal, a description of specifications, a blueprint, and a photo.

Here a document consists of 4 separate files - the first is now on display.

3. Navigating Through Pages

This is for many the most "normal" type of browsing, namely through the individual pages of the current file.

Here you can see the first page of a two-page document.

You can’t seem to see all these navigation types?

This can have two reasons:

1. The navigation area for files (as described in point 2) is automatically hidden if a document consists of only one file.

2. Individual functions can be deactivated for the toolbar. To activate them, open the Settings via the DocuWare menu and select the Viewer tab.

To activate individual viewer functions, select the "Viewer" tab in "Settings"

 

By clicking on the eye icon of individual functions, you can activate or deactivate them.
