Customising Document Desktop

Customising Document Desktop

Customising the column headers can be useful on the one hand, if specialised terminology is established in your work environment. The column holding information about the document creator, for instance, has the column header "Sender" by default. If you are talking about "author" or "creator" instead, you can adapt the column header accordingly. On the other hand you can establish titles for database columns which have been introduced specifically for processing your documents such as a document number or specific address components, e.g. a P.O. Box.

 

To customise where the localisation files are located

Document Desktop (version 1.1.0 and higher) allows to adapt the location where localisation files are stored and to localise column headers and column contents according to the company's needs.

By default, Document Desktop looks for the localisation files in [USERDIR]/DocumentDesktop/localization directory. You can, however, specify a custom directory by editing the DocumentDesktop.config.xml.

Modify section <LocalizationDirectory> of DocumentDesktop.config.xml and specify a location for the localisation properties.

If the entry you want to customise is missing or no localisation files are present at all, the system values are displayed instead.

Note: When sorting a localised column, the entries will be shown in the order of the unlocalised column values.
