Whenever a user selects to open or view a document within TaskSpace, it appears on the Open Items tab using the configured viewer for the document file type. However, if the user selects to view a document and there is no viewer configured for the document file type, the document opens in its native application. The following document viewers are supported:
|• ||IGC Brava!, which supports BMP, EMF, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PDF, PNG, TIFF, TXT, and other file types|
|• ||Daeja ViewOne Pro, which supports GIF, JPEG, PDF, TIFF, and other file types|
|• ||Adobe Acrobat Reader, which supports PDF|
|• ||Documentum PDF Annotation Services (PAS), which supports PDF|
|• ||OpenOffice, which supports OpenOffice Writer files (ODT), such as instances of high fidelity form templates|
|• ||Browser, which supports GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG and, if using Internet Explorer, the MS Office formats|
The IGC Brava!, Daeja, and PAS viewers all support creating and viewing annotations, but Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0, OpenOffice, and the Browser do not support any annotation manipulation.
When using the OpenOffice viewer, you might receive an Internet Explorer - Security Warning dialog box each time you try to open a document. If you don’t want to see this warning repeatedly, follow these steps:
|2.||Choose Always install software from "EMC Corporation".|
To use the OpenOffice viewer, you must have the necessary permissions to install the software. Check with your system administrator if you have any questions.
Most of the functionality when using a viewer in the Open Items tab is provided through the viewer itself, such as creating and viewing annotations
and printing documents
; therefore, documentation for the viewer being used should be consulted for additional information.
Once a document returned in a result set is opened within a viewer on the Open Items tab, the following action buttons may be available when opening a document in Edit mode (if user has edit privileges) using any of the supported viewers:
|• ||Save saves any changes made to the document.|
|• ||Save and Close saves changes made to the document and closes the document viewer.|
|• ||Cancel discards any changes made to the document and closes the document viewer.|
Available buttons are subject to specific system configuration and may not always be present, or you may see buttons other than what have been listed here.
Depending on configuration settings and licensing, you may also be able to access collaboration features when viewing a document.
