When you view a document in a listing of documents (e.g., a search listing, tag listing etc.,) GoldFynch can ‘remember’ where you were in viewing the files so that you can return to your position in file review even if you navigate away from the document.
Note: The functionality of the "Previous Document/Next Document" buttons from this article has been incorporated into the navigation context feature.
Triggers for Navigation Contexts
The navigation context appears whenever you open a file in the Document Viewer. This can be caused when:
- You open a document in the Document Viewer from the Files. This applies even if there are no other files in the file's folder.
- You perform a search and click on one of the search results
- You view a file that is part of a file family
So this is also possible when browsing through files or opening files in the Document Viewer (i.e. even when you are not searching.)
Using Navigation Contexts
It can be toggled open and closed by clicking on the button in the top-right corner, and the panel opens on the left of your screen.
Each set of navigation contexts has a toolbar at its top:
- The details of the context the document is opened from is displayed here
- Click on the name of the navigation context (by default named “Untitled” as in the image below)
- You can minimize and expand it by clicking on the upwards and downwards arrows
- You can cycle through files in your navigation context by clicking the forward and back arrows
- You can remove a navigation context by clicking on the trashcan icon (this doesn’t delete files, only the navigational context list)
Make Active button allows you to switch between different contexts. Each opened document may come with its own context - like an email and its attachments, for example, and in that case you will receive a prompt asking whether you want to open the document with its new context.
- But if it exists in the active context, it is highlighted as well. If a document is not the active context, you can click on the
Make Active button (as shown in the image above) to set it to the active context.
- It displays the name of the navigation context, the percent of it that has been viewed, etc.
For the navigation context itself:
- The files can be viewed with or without indexes (i.e reference numbering of the file's position in the navigation context). The available indexes are -
- Absolute index - This is based on the absolute value of the number of files in the navigation context
- Relative index - This is based on the value relative to the file that is currently being viewed
- The arrow pointing towards the active file (e.g. the one against the entry beginning with “000003” in the image above)
- Items that have not been seen yet will be in bold (the 4th and 5th entries above)
- If you have more than one navigation context, you may switch between the two and your progress within each navigation context will be saved
- This can be combined with filter and search results
Note: To change the index option just click on the 'gear' icon in the top-right corner of the navigation panel
It is possible to have a situation where a file comes up as a search result and is opened in the Document Viewer, but is also shown to have its own file family, and thus a different but valid context. In this scenario (and in general in similar scenarios) you can click on the
Make Active buttons to move into and back from the other navigation context, with the search results still being in place.
Cycling through files from the Doc view:
You can use the Previous Document and Next Document buttons found at the top of the Doc View to cycle through your files as an alternative to the backward and forward arrow on the Navigation Context panel.
