Document Preview information

Hi all,

I would like to have some preview of the document contained in nuxeo DM (at least pdf and office document (Libreoffice)) but I can't find the option.

reading some posts here and there it seems there seems to be a Preview tab somewhere I can't find.

I guess there is perhaps a dedicated module to install but can't find anything related in the market place.

Am I missing something in the configuration or perhaps during the install process.

For information, I'm using the Nuxeo Platform 5.5 on ubuntu 10.04

Thanks in advance

Since 5.5 there is no more preview tab, there is a little eyes next to the document title…

Many thanks,

I have tried this feature but it seemed not to work with the pdf file I tried. Thus I thought the feature was not working.

But it did with openoffice document and text one.

2 additionnal questions:

  • is there any posibilty to zoom in and out in previewed document ? (in calc sheets with high number of columns the size lead to an unreadable document with the actual preview)

  • is the pdf format recognised ?

OK….it works also for pdf …but it was so long that I never wait enough. While writing this post and come back to nuxeo, my pdf is displayed. Don't know if there is something to do in my configuration to improve this as the current configuration is unfortunately unusable because of the time delay (> 20 sec so it is quicker to download and open it which make the “preview” feature seless in my case).

Again thank you for your help.

Can you create a question entry for each question? This will give more visibility for users that will have the same trouble than you. So can you modify the previous message to separate precisions on this question entry and other question… Many thanks.

And don't hesitate to mark your own answer as The answer of the question.


Sorry, I 'm sure to understand what do you mean by creating a "new question entry" ? Do you mean a new answer, comment or a new post ?

A new post, it will improve readability for other users looking for information on the same subjects.

And can you modify also this answer to put only the real answer, like that user that will have the same problem will have a synthetic answer… You can only let the part after: works also for pdf

And remove all text before.

It would be great for the community :) And don't forget to tag your answer as the ONE… This will improve your karma :D
