User Interface

enaio® client 10.10 »

The user interface of enaio® client consists of a title bar, a menu bar, a status bar in the outer main window, and an inner workspace. The layout and positions of the main workspace elements are highly flexible. The settings which have been defined or approved for your user group by the system administrator determine which settings can be made.

In the title bar you will find the Quick Access Toolbar and the standard buttons Minimize, Restore, Maximize, and Close. This is followed by the Ribbon containing tabs. To the right of the ribbon, you will see the The Full-Text Search Input Field with a selection list of preconfigured full-text queries and the object selection configuration area for full-text queries.

In some cases, ribbon tabs refer to the active hit list and objects in the workspace.


The following main elements of the workspace can be shown/hidden using the View ribbon tab:

Workspace Content preview - icon Content preview (see Content Preview)

Workspace Details preview - icon Details preview (see Details Preview)

Workspace Navigation - icon Navigation (see Navigation)

Workspace Inboxes - icon Inboxes (see Inboxes)

Workspace Object search - icon Object search (see Object Search)

Position of Workspace Elements

The flexible main elements of the workspace, i.e., result window, object search, navigation, inboxes, and content/content preview can be modified separately regardless of the predefined layouts.

Result Window

The central element of the workspace is the result window where search requests, hit lists, folders, and registers and their content will be displayed.

The status bar of the result window contains:

  • statistics on the number of hits in a hit list and the number of selected hits;

  • context-sensitive icons which can be used to open further views: register view, link view, select between quicklooks and report view, preview of index data;

  • a 'Filter list' text input field. You can enter search terms used to search hit lists in this field. Once at least three characters have been entered, the hit list is limited to the hits which contain these characters in the index data.

You can use Ctrl+Scroll wheel to scale the font in various result windows such as in hit lists, folder windows, and inboxes.

Status Bar

The enaio® client status bar shows:

  • the enaio® server with which your enaio® client is connected.

  • character set with which your system works – UNICODE or ANSI.

  • whether additional modules such as the cryptography module are being used.

Settings for the User Interface

The ENAIO ribbon tab > Settings provide many options for changing the appearance and display of objects.

You can reset the settings under Workspace > Reset window layout in the Settings dialog and return to the default layout at any time (see Resetting the window layout ).

As so many different settings can be made, note that the texts and images below are generally based on the assumption that the Tabs option has been enabled under ENAIO ribbon tab > Settings > Workspace. If you use other settings, the view may differ from the version presented here in certain specific areas.

In the workspace, you can show or hide the object search, navigation, content preview, details preview, and inboxes.

Instead of displaying the data on tabs, you can also display it in windows.
