Document Viewer Page Layout
The Browse page shows all the documents uploaded in the current case and will display as few as 10 or as many as 200 document links at a time. The number of documents available for review in the Document Viewer depends on the number of documents the user has displayed in the Browse or Search screens. Access the Document Viewer by clicking the hyperlinked title in the Browse or Search screen.
This will open a full version of the file in the browser with up to eleven different document views available. Additionally, from the Document Viewer users can enter and edit document coding and data, apply review tagging, redactions, and annotations, and add and edit notes and facts.
Show or Hide the Side Panel in the Document Viewer
When the user opens any document in the Document Viewer, there is a panel on the right that includes the DISC, DOC, NOTES, FACTS, and RELATED tabs. Users can choose to display or hide this panel when viewing documents. To hide the panel click the case name in the upper right corner of the screen, and select Hide.
The Document Viewer is divided between a document view on the left and a coded data view on the right. The document view can include up to eleven tabs (views) as shown in the image below. The Original, Translated, Redacted, Annotated and Compare tabs are data dependent and will be grayed out if documents fitting those categories are absent (i.e. no Originals/Natives). The Hits tab is only available when accessed from Search results.
HITS. Highlights the number of times a word appears on each indexed page of the document when the document is opened from Search results.
ORIGINAL. View document in native format (e.g., Word, Excel, etc.) using Microsoft Office or other native applications opened on a local computer. PDF files and TIFF collections (originals) can be displayed without installing additional software.
HTML. View the extracted text version of the original documents without using applications outside LEP. This view will not have page breaks, OCR, and is not a print-formatted version.
PAGE. View paginated documents (multi-page PDFs and TIFFs) one page at a time. This can be faster for viewing large documents.
PDF. View all the pages of the document in a PDF format.
TEXT. View the indexed text of a document. This includes OCR text from scanned documents and extracted text from native documents.
PRODUCED. View documents that have been produced as part of a standard document production generated in LEP. The document will appear exactly as produced to opposing counsel including any redactions applied with the Redaction Editor and any Bates numbering applied when running the document production.
TRANSLATED. View the translated version of a foreign language document that has previously been translated on a local computer using a third party translation tool, by human translation, or by using our eDiscovery Auto-Translation services.
REDACTED. View the redacted version of a file either created within LEP or uploaded as a redacted version of a PDF file.
ANNOTATED. View annotated or highlighted PDF images or files.
COMPARE. Displays the two documents being compared when using the built-in Document Comparison Tool.
Coding Tabs on the right of the Document Viewer
The section on the right of the page is divided into five tabs: DISC (Discovery), DOC, NOTES, FACTS, and RELATED. See the individual links for more information on a specific tab.
Auto Advance & Propagate Coding
