Get File

Open a file for viewing or referencing.

Use the Get File command to open a file for viewing. If the Open File in Editor option is not selected, the file will be fetched but not opened in FrameMaker.

Double-clicking a file in the Resources list will fetch the selected file and leave the dialog box open to allow the opening of multiple files. Select a file and choose Get to fetch the file then close the dialog.

Use the Refresh button to update the list of folders if they have changed on the server since logging in to the XDocs server.

You can specify the appearance of the labels in the Resources list by selecting the appropriate option in Preferences. If a file is checked out (and thus locked), the username of the owner will be indicated in angle brackets.
