Functions in Document View

When you select an object in the result list, the first available form is displayed in document view. As a minimum, the following forms are displayed for each editable object:

  • Overview form

    This form is used only to display selected data for an object.

  • Master data form

    Use this form to change the object data.

Every form has a form tab bar that displays the selected object according to a set display template. Objects that were marked as "pending" in the synchronization process are now labeled [Outstanding].

Every form has a context menu with form-specific entries. In expert mode, go to Settings... on the form's context menu to see more object settings and the permissions.

To open the forms for an object:

  • When you select an object on the result list, the first form always opens (usually the overview form).

To display multiple forms in the document view:

  • Use Alt + Click or click Open on new tab from the context menu to open the objects.

    It is only possible to quick edit the selected object.

  • From the menu, select View | Quick edit

    Restart the program to enable quick edit mode.

  • Go to Database | Settings... and enable the option Enable quick edit mode.

    Quick edit mode remains enabled even if you restart the program.

The status bar in the Manager also shows the following information when you open a form:

  • The definition of the current object
  • The name of the activated form in the following format: <logical form> [(<physical form>)]

Tip: Double-click the name in the status bar to copy the object definition and the form name to the clipboard.
