1.4 Displaying QuickViewer

Use QuickViewer to scan the contents of your items in a folder. QuickViewer saves time because you don’t need to open each item; you simply click an item or press the Down-arrow key to read your items.

If you click a document reference, the document displays in QuickViewer. You can display an item’s attachments by clicking the attachments drop down in the item.

New in 18.1: QuickViewer smart sizing automatically switches between 3 settings depending on the size and format of the item that you are viewing. The settings are Regular, Wide, and Extra Wide. The default setting is Regular. Each setting is customizable and you can manually switch the setting by clicking the Settings button in the top right of the nav bar. You can disable QuickViewer auto sizing in Tools > Options > Environment > General > Enable QV smart sizing.
