  1. I suggest to allow opening multiple selected documents in tabs

    I suggest to offer a possibility to open documents as a new tab. The opened documents would be shown as tabs within the viewer and allow fast switching between documents and allow opening multiple documents that are selected in a result list with just one click.

    • Ability to increase the size of the Thumbnails in the Document Trey

      Add the ability to increase the size of the thumbnails in the Thumbnail or Index Cards views in the Document Trey. They are pretty much useless at the current size.

      • Better usage of the open Microsoft Office format

        The new Microsoft Office formats are open and formatted with XML. It would be nice to use this better, for example with comparison of two documents (Regarding versioning) or for automatic indexing for known documents. The index values could be read directly in the XML data. Most documents are created with the Microsoft Office package.

        • Allow word wrap in Stamp Text Fields

          Allow word wrap in stamps. We need to add quite long comments in stamps as part of our workflow, but there is no word wrap functionality for longer comments.

          • show the number of documents in a tray in the tab of the tray next to the name

            In the tab that contains the name of tray it would be an improvement if it also contained the number of documents in that tray.

            • Restore function "Open in plugin"

              If you need to edit stored documents from Web Client using a different software instead the default software associated to the documents file extension.

              • Add the ability to print just the view of the Viewer Window

                We work with many clients who view large drawings and sometimes need to print a section of the map. It would be beneficial to add the ability to print just the view of the viewer, even if zoomed in. Right now, if the user zooms in to the portion of the map and chooses the Print function, it opens in the PDF viewer and the user has to zoom in all over again.

                  • Add .ptx files as a supported file

                    Adding .ptx file format would be beneficial to Docuware because there are law firms and court systems that use this type of file format for their records. This is a standard form of file type for law firms, attorneys and court houses across the nation.

                    • Access Rights

                      Access Rights to be determined in relation to layers on the document. Take the case of a document with bank details on it. Allow certain users to see Layer with bank details. Redact the bank details on layer 2 and give other users access to that. I can see this being beneficial for a number of different objectives

                      • Allow Scrolling to "Next Document" on Non-document File Formats

                        The Web Client shuts down or displays an error and will not allow scrolling to the next file if a audio or video is stored. This was not the case in the Full Client.

                        • Make the highlighter tool like the one in Word or Google Docs.

                          The current highlighter tool covers up the word it is highlighting to much. Also it should not be a freestyle highlighter, but used like that in Word or Google Docs.

                          • Add additional page for stamps

                            Reviewing the invoices can be difficult as there is not enough room for the stamps, so the stamp and the underlying text becomes illegible. Another seperate sheet solely for stamps might be an idea.

                            • Direct Access to Files Within a Document

                              The current version of Docuware relies on PDF file structures but there are a great number of clients that have TIFF and DWTIFF images that are all each treated as a single clipped file in a Document. This creates a big problem for the users who wish to go directly to an image within a file with a large number of pages.

                              There are 2 solutions both of which I think need to be applied to Docuware as they both solve multiple problems.

                              1: Build a Pre 6 DW document to PDF file conversion workflow. This would allow clients with…

                              • show open files without documents in Explorer - accommodating structured file plans

                                At my institution we have a structure file plan/classification scheme that must be adhered to. Users like using the Explorer View to browse for their documents, and we've currently set it up so that the first folder layer is the file code, with the specific folders belonging to that category displaying "within" it. The issue is that open files with no electronic documents attached to them do not display to the user. We have a work-around by putting a temp file in each newly created folder. Please make these open folders with no documents in them visible!

                                • Have the viewer act similar to acrobat 9 (adobe editor) to edit documents easier

                                  Have the viewer act similar to acrobat 9 (adobe editor) to edit documents easier. It would be nice to drag and drop to re-organize documents right from the viewer. Instead of unclipping a document just to re-organize a couple pages it would be nice to move them with a simple drag to the new spot as well as adding another PDF directly into the file by using drag and drop. Deleting a page from the PDF would be a nice functionality that acrobat 9 offers as well.

                                  • Prompt to save when index entries have been changed

                                    When using the viewer with index entries, any changes are not saved unless you press the save button.
                                    If you close the document without pressing the save button you are NOT prompted to "Save Changes".

                                    This could cause problems for users if they
                                    1. Open the Document
                                    2. Change the index entries (but not press save)
                                    3. Make an annotation on the document
                                    4. Close the Document
                                    They would be prompted to “Save Changes” this could be very misleading, as they would think they are saving all changes and not just the annotation.

                                    • Split panes next to each other instead of one above other.

                                      Is it possible to have split panes next to each other instead of one above the other? With a separate viewer there is a better view of the webbaskets, entries, lists etc.

                                        • Open Linked Documents in new viewer by defualt

                                          Need the ability to have linked documents open in a new viewer by default. I know it is possible to right click and open the linked document in a new viewer but this is inefficient.
