Thumbnails of a document can be produced so that the document can be previewed without opening the associated PDF. You can select how many pages of the document can be previewed from a drop down list. To preview a document click the Icon-Preview associated with the document.

infoNote: When Skyline is first installed the default configuration option Library - Number of Preview Pages is configured as 20 pages and Library - Click Thumbnail is configured as Preview. All portals associated with Skyline will use the Global setting. The number of pages can be left as the default global setting, or changed for each specific portal.

Select the number of pages in the document to be shown as thumbnails from the drop down list. The choices are 10, 20, 50 or All pages. The default selection is 20 pages. If the option All Pages is selected there may be a delay in showing all the pages on very long documents.
5.Click Icon-Save to save the setting.
