The Table view uses table layouts to determine the fields and order of the fields displayed within the view. Table layouts can be used to customize viewing preferences or to support sort methods specific to a review.
Table view layouts are created and maintained on the Table Layout dialog box. For each database, each user has one private layout, that is accessible only to the user. Any additional layouts created for a database are public and accessible to everyone using the same database. A database's public layouts can be created, edited, or deleted by anyone in the database.
Be selective when creating table layouts for a database. Too many table layouts in a database can slow down the database's processing speed.
If you have a table layout design that works well in other databases, you can copy and paste the .layout file into other database directories, and then rename the file with the new database name.
If you are using Table View to display long documents, such as depositions or resumes, you can get much faster performance if you do not display full text Paragraph fields. If necessary, add fixed length fields to your database, which have identifying information, such as a name, date and serial or volume number. Then use those fields for Table View. By selecting only fixed length text, date or numeric fields, large full text portions are not loaded. This improves performance for long document types.
It is recommended that the .layout file not be marked as Read-Only as this will prevent users from creating or switching layout views.
You can only make new layouts for the database currently selected. Any layouts created in addition to your private table layout are accessible to all reviewers, and can be altered or deleted by them as well.
