3.3. Shortcuts for Saving Documents

We can speed up the process of navigating through the Code Look Up Tables and the Profile Card.

Code Look Up Tables

Use the Scroll Bar

Using the scroll bar is one method of finding a value in a field code lookup table (there are faster ways which we will cover in the following pages).  Simply scroll up and down through the table until you find your selection.

Type to your Choice

Rather than scrolling through the code lookup table, you might opt to click in the table and begin typing.  This will take you to the value you're looking for within the table.

Note:  Selecting the up and down arrows (or using the up and down arrows on your keyboard) will take you to the next and previous selections that matches the criteria you have typed.

Select Linked Fields

When you select the first of the linked fields (e.g., "Category") then select the second linked field (e.g., "Doc Type"), you are presented only with a list of the values that are linked to the first field, which narrows your choice and makes your selection easier. 

For example, after selecting the "Benefits" category in the profile card, the DocType lookup table only displays doctypes that are linked to the Benefits category:

If you do not know which category a particular document type is listed under, you can begin by selecting the Doc Type field button.  This will list all doc types, organized by category.  Selecting the linked doc type first will automatically pre-fill the category into the profile card.

Note:  You can combine this method with Type-to-your-Choice.

Profile Card

Use Drop Down Arrow

Worldox remembers the last few field code lookup values you have selected in past saves, and provides you with a drop-down arrow that includes those entries.

To access the list, simply click the drop-down arrow on the right-hand side of the field:

This can be very useful if you're saving a number of documents for the same client.

Note: If you'd like to remove entries from your drop-down list then you can click the arrow to open the drop down list, then right-click on the entry (or entries) and then click back out of the list to close it. When you open it again, those entries will have been removed.

This is what it looks like when you right click on the entry. There is a little red line on the left indicating what will be removed, you can toggle that if you select the wrong entry.
