PDF View

Location: ->Document Viewer


The PDF view tab is located in the Document Viewer. Click any document link from the Search, Browse or Facts & Issues pages to view the pages of an uploaded document in PDF document format.

If a large document is selected, a message similar to the message below will be displayed:

Selecting "Switch to Page View" is faster as only one page is opened at a time. By clicking the "Stay in Doc View" option, the entire document will be opened and will take longer, depending on the document size and Internet speed. The user may switch to Page View by clicking Switch to Page View (faster) or selecting the PAGE tab.

Viewing PDF documents

The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) uses the Browser PDF plugin installed on the user's computer and associated with the PDF file extension for displaying PDF documents. Depending on the plugin settings, the PDF will either display in-line or open as a separate PDF document. The default setting is to open PDFs within the browser window.

Adobe Acrobat Reader

LEP incorporates a fully functional version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. This functionality will pop up in the upper right and lower right corners of the screen (Browser dependent).


Install and activate the Adobe Reader plugin in Firefox/Tools->Add-ons->Plugins.

In LEP, open the PDF to review in the Document Viewer->PDF or Page tabs.

Enter the keyword to search within the current document. Click Find to view all the occurrences of the word or use the Highlight all option to view all occurrences of the word simultaneously.


Chrome Browser includes a built in PDF viewer. The current version of this plugin does not allow searching inside the PDF directly. Instead, either search within the HTML or Text tab or save the PDF and open it in Acrobat reader and search it.

Saving and Moving to the Next Document

To either save or save and go to the next document automatically, use the Save button and Auto Advance checkbox.
