ndOffice 2.3 Update - November 2018



What's New in ndOffice 2.3


User Features

Activity Center defaults to Pinned

In ndOffice 2.3, the Activity Center defaults to pinned and closed, which anchors the ndOffice application in the Windows taskbar while closed. Any time the Activity Center is closed with the X in the upper right corner, ndOffice will continue to be displayed on the taskbar.


The default behavior can be controlled through the following registry setting:

String Name: PinActivityCenterOnStartup
Value Data: True or False


Search within Folder or Filter

With the 2.3 release, users can now perform an Advanced Search within a Folder or Filter and the results will be limited to that context. Simply navigate to the desired location and click Advanced Search. The default search scope will be the selected container:


Note: ndOffice includes 20 subfolders into the search results.

To clear the current folder or filter, uncheck the "Search within container" box.


Searching by File Type

ndOffice 2.3 now allows users to limit a search by file type. The File extension option can narrow the search scope to Documents Only, Folders Only, or Saved Searches:



Recent Documents

In ndOffice 2.3, emails are no longer added to the Recent Documents list. This allows users to view more documents in their Recent Documents list. 

The default behavior can be controlled through the following registry setting:

String Name: AddEmailsToRecents
Value Data: True or False


Edit Profile Details from Activity Center

Users can now edit the profile for any document in their Activity Center. To edit the profile, hover over an item in the Activity Center and an Edit Profile icon will appear to the right of the document name:


Click on the Edit Profile icon to open the dialog and edit the document's profile information:
