World Software has announced that the long-awaited Indexer as a Service (IaaS) offering is now ready and is going to be packaged into the latest Worldox GX4 update, WDU10. While we will explain below more about the benefits of running your Indexer program as a service, we must first caution you from updating your site without proper guidance and planning beforehand. The indexer as a service will automatically install after the update and start running in a semi complete state, while it waits for further configuration. If the Indexer is not configured properly, after the update, the text and profile databases along with any other scheduled jobs will cease to update or run. It is for this reason that we want to caution you from updating Worldox without understanding how to configure the new software first.

When Worldox updated their program from GX3 to GX4, they simplified the save dialog box. For the most part, the improvements were great (i.e. adding Categories, etc.). However, one feature almost universally missed was the drop-down list of recent long name descriptions. This caused heartburn for many people because they used this to promote consistent naming and to save time in naming files.

Good news! Its back! As is true with Worldox historically, the company truly listens to its customers, ... and they really do care. It is difficult to please everyone, but Worldox really does try, and they are nimble enough to make things happen.

Did you know Microsoft Word has an easier way to read your documents, no matter what screen you are using?

Back in 2013, Microsoft implemented the “Read mode” to Microsoft Word. It auto-resizes the document to the full screen and is completely uncluttered.

There is a new phishing scam where you may receive a Google document from a known contact. It requires you to log in and allow it to control your contacts which gives the hack control of your Google email account which in turn further propagates the scam.

The bad documents are very hard to detect, so it is best to get confirmation from the sender before opening it.

Lawyers often need to edit long word documents. Scrolling back and forth between distant pages in a long document is cumbersome. Why not split your screen so you can view different parts of the same document simultaneously so that each window has its own independent scroll bar? Here is how to do that.
