|Document review is only supported on 64-bit Collaborator servers. On 32-bit platforms, Collaborator may fail to process the documents due to insufficient memory.|
|The Collaborator Visual Studio Extension and Eclipse Plug-in do not support reviewing vector graphics. Use the Web Client instead.|
Collaborator adds native support for Microsoft Visio vector graphics (.vdw, .vdx, .vsd, .vsdm, .vsdx, .vss, .vssm, .vssx, .vst, .vstm, .vstx, .vsx and .vtx).
To review Visio vector graphics, just attach them to the review as you would any other file and when you open the Diff Viewer, the content area will display the presentation contents for review.
Vector graphics can only be viewed in a single or side-by-side layout. Diff Viewer cannot highlight differences in graphical objects, however it is able to highlight changes in text contents: changes are yellow, additions are green and deletions are red.
Scrollbars are available for each revision of the document. You are also able to move the separator to show more or less of either revision. To do this, drag the separator to the desired location.
To change pages (when a drawing consists of multiple pages), use the arrows at the bottom left of the comparison screen.
The arrows will allow you to go to the Previous Page or the Next Page. You can also manually enter a page number and hit enter to jump to any arbitrary page. The page numbers will refer to the latest upload of the document shown.
You can also use the mouse wheel to scroll through the pages (unless disabled by the respective option).
Both the side-by-side and single view support zooming the images in the display. Zooming out is useful if the page is too large to display in the browser window without scrolling. Zoom is also useful for more precise placement of the comment markers. However, whether zoomed in or out, the comment markers still refer to pixel locations in the image at 100% zoom, so subpixel comments are not supported. If a zoom operation would cause the currently selected location to scroll offscreen, the image will be scrolled to recenter the selected location.
Rescaling of documents is performed by rerendering the document on the Collaborator server and could be slow depending on the size of the document and the selected image scale.
You can move an existing pushpin to a new position in a document. The feature works in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, and should be enabled by administrator.
To move a comment:
Select the desired comment.
Click and hold the Move Comment handle ().
Drag the handle to the new position in the document.
In multi-page drawings, the first page has smaller scale than other pages. The third-party library used for processing Visio graphics mimics the behaviour of the original Microsoft Visio application which also saves the first page smaller than other pages.
If the DiffViewer has troubles displaying small characters, diagrams or documents look blurry, you will need to increase the resolution scale via the
com.smartbear.diff.image.resolution.scale Java VM option, restart Collaborator server and clear browser cache.
