Preview button on download page

Hello,

In earlier versions of Docman until 1.6 there was a Preview button on the download page, I don't see this button in Docman 2.0 (RC3) anymore. Can you explain why this is not available?

Thanks for your reply.

Hi,

We have removed the preview button in favor of a combined Download button. In our user experience tests, we have found that having two buttons confused users more than it helped them.

Moreover, now with the rise of the mobile browsers we cannot know for sure if the user is able to download or preview the document in hand.

Right now, you can decide if the button should force download all files, or try to preview it in the browser if possible.

Does this help?
