View Assets

You can view the information about an asset in several ways. For example, you can view textual lists or thumbnails in catalogs. In an asset's Document Info view, you can review or change metadata and open previews of the asset.

The Main Display content area includes a task pane at the top with icons that you can click to perform actions specific to the information you are working with.

NOTE: Your user privileges determine which icons are displayed in the task pane. For example, administrators are usually the only users allowed to delete assets from the database.

NOTE: On Internet Explorer 8, performance is slow in the Thumbnail view, Paragraph view, and List views if the Metadata Display preference is set greater than 400 assets per page for these views. To change these preferences, click View user preferences icon, then the Metadata Display tab.
