    Quick View Plus Web allows you to add annotations to a document. Annotations can simply be highlighted areas or text or can include comments as well.
  • Redactions
    Quick View Plus Web delivers the ability to redact content within a document. Simply select the area or text you want to redact. Quick View Plus Web allows you to see the underlying content that was redacted prior to it being output as a final version of the document where the redactions would be applied. Redactions performed by selecting text removes the text and would not searchable. Redactions can also be done automatically using patterns, such as to redact Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Final Form Production

Perfect for eDiscovery. Once you’re ready to create a final production of files, output files as TIFFs or PDFs. In addition to the content of the document, the final form production can be set to also include any annotations or redactions.

Thumbnails View

Quick View Plus Web offers the ability to show thumbnails of each page within a file to the left of the main view window. This allows a user to quickly find a certain page based upon a view of smaller representations of the pages in a file. The thumbnail view is based upon the base content within a file. 

Expanded Search

Allows an external application to pre-search the document data and provide data to the Quick View Plus Web application to highlight in the file view. In addition to the regular parameters of a document request, an additional parameter called highlights can be passed as well to communicate specific settings for the highlights. You can also perform ad-hoc searches in the open document from within Quick View Plus Web.

See Hidden Information within Files

Quick View Plus Web displays file metadata, plus other information, such as speaker notes and comments in presentations, hidden rows and columns in spreadsheets, and hidden information in Microsoft Word documents that is not visible in the document itself.
