the network. This requires a connection and sufficient permissions to
the network to function. The connection can be set up in the properties
of the view element or in the Integration module.

directories will be shown with subfolders and files in the browser. By
clicking on a directory name, the directory will be opened. Clicking on
a file name will open the file, whereby the program that opens it

the direct editing of directory and file names, as well as copying,
opening, downloading (only files) and deleting (directories as well).
The sorting order can be changed via the column headers.
The four symbols at the head of the explorer allow for navigation in
the directory structure one level above. New folders can be created and

path (path that will be shown as the starting directory in the
explorer) via the symbol to the right of the name of the current folder.
The Search style will use the
FileWalker as a full text search. In the edit field, the user can
search by any type of search term, as long as the file type allows it.
In scanned documents that are saved as image files, no hits will be
returned. All files that return hits will be shown in the table in the
lower area and can be opened via a link.
