Customize ndOffice Dialog Box View


The navigation pane on the left side displays locations and containers in NetDocuments, whereas the pane on the right side displays the workspace and folder contents as well as search results.

ndOffice 2.8, now retains the state of the navigation pane of your cabinets in the navigation pane of the Save, Save As, and Open dialog boxes, and in the ndMail/Outlook navigation pane. This simplifies your workflow and is especially useful if you have access to many cabinets but primarily work in just a few of those cabinets.


The size of these panes can be adjusted by moving the handle left or right. Additionally, you can adjust the Search text box by moving the handle. Additionally, you can adjust the search box.

This gives you more screen space to do your work in ndOffice and is better for users who tend to work with long workspace, folder, or document names.
