Overview: Documents

You can manage the many documents circulating in a case using the Documents Explorer in TRIAL DIRECTOR.

Documents Explorer

The Documents Explorer allows you to add, rearrange, replace, rename, and generally manage documents in the case. From the explorer, you can open documents in the Documents Work Area.

Pressing F2 after selecting a cell in the explorer will allow you to edit the information.

Note: When using the Documents Explorer, you can rearrange the columns in the grid. You can save these layout changes to a new layout or, if you click Save Layout and type in the name of the layout you are working in, the sort order for the columns will be saved to the existing layout. For more information, see Save a Layout.

Once you've added documents to a case, they are visible in the Documents Explorer.

To open a document and review it in the Document Work Area, select the document you want in the Documents Explorer and either double click on it or click the Open Item button in the explorer ribbon bar.
