What is the Document Widescreen Viewer?
The Document Widescreen Viewer is an addon developed by Skytizens to give users an added viewing option in Alfresco. While viewing a document in Preview Mode, the Document Widescreen Viewer is a straightforward button which expands the document view to fit the width of the screen.
Why is the Document Widescreen Viewer so important?
- 30% Expansion – Gives the user a 30% larger screen area to Preview files
- Dynamic display – Adds another option for the user to customize Preview Mode
- Presentations – Useful to view landscape-oriented documents more clearly or more zoomed-in without having to fully open the file
The Benefits of the Document Widescreen Viewer
The Document Widescreen Viewer in Preview Mode is just one more dynamic ability of the Document Library in Skytizens Alfresco. The extended view is useful for previewing documents with a lot of information like spreadsheets or tables in landscape orientation. With the Document Widescreen Viewer on, users can see more detailed information or use zoom to enlarge the font significantly in the Preview display.
How Does It Work?
The Document Widescreen Viewer addon is essentially an ON/OFF switch to increase the size of the preview display. It appears in the upper-right corner of the screen when any document is opened in Preview Mode.
The default view in Alfresco’s Preview Mode displays 2/3 of the screen for the visual preview of the document and another 1/3 of the screen for the Documents Action Menu Bar. When clicked, the Document Widescreen Viewer button extends the viewing portion of the Preview to fit the width of the screen of the device the user is working on. When clicked again, the Preview screen returns to the default setting.
Expand by 30% – Expands viewer to fit the width of the browser screen on any device. When clicked on, the Document Action Menu Bar is hidden.
Return to Default – The Document Widescreen Viewer addon is a true ON/OFF switch with only two settings. When clicked off, the Preview display returns to 2/3 of the screen and displays the Document Action Menu Bar on the right-hand column.
It’s time to expand your view. Extended screen in Preview Mode is here.
The Document Widescreen Viewer feature by Skytizens adds one more dynamic view to Preview Mode in the Alfresco Document Library. The ON/OFF toggle simply enlarges the preview display of any file by 30% for easier viewing. The display reduces just as easily at the click of a button.
Without having to fully open the file, Alfresco users have one more viewing option in their toolkit. Users will find it useful for detail-heavy documents, zooming in, and for reading lengthy documents in a more comfortable font size.
