The document viewer in DocuNECT v5.0 can view the following formats:

  • Image Based Documents - TIFF, JPG, BMP and GIF files are viewed using the HTML5 viewer.
  • Adobe PDF - PDFs are viewed using the Adobe PDF browser plug-in.
  • Text Based Documents - Text documents are viewed using HTML5 viewer and XML, HTML are viewed directly in the browser.
  • Microsoft Office - If using an On-Premise solution then Microsoft Office documents can be displayed in the browser if you have Microsoft Office documents installed on your local machine. If you are using a solution in the Portford Cloud then it uses the online Office Viewer that does not require a installation of Microsoft Office.

Using the Image Viewer

The image viewer is browser independent and does not require a plug-in to be installed. For more information on browser compatibility then please review the Component Compatibility page.
