  1. I'm unclear as to how "Edit key/value pairs" works, and how to use. Tried FAQ's, help, and search functions. But no luck.

    A help topic, FAQ, or other to explain how to use "Edit key/value pairs" within "Edit Data."

  3. Re-ordering notes

    I'd like to be able to re-order my notes without reordering the whole document.

  4. Love to highlight fields, without note function, in different colors -- to more easily ID names/items in table data that are similar.

  6. Public notes are randomly being added to documents

    Not an idea, but a problem. As I'm adding public notes to documents, random, empty public notes are popping up randomly. I can't click on them to delete them or add content to them or anything. Anyone else having this problem?

  7. Users request the ability to export timeline/entities

    The document cloud view timeline tool is incredibly useful -- but to bring the functionality full-circle, users request the ability to export these timelines in useful structure data that can then be transformed into bulleted lists, etc.

  8. import failed error - Workaround

    If you receive an "import failed. Our system was unable to process this document" error after importing a .jpg or .png then redacting it, I have a workaround.

    Convert or save the .jpg or .png (may work with other image types also..I've only tested it with these two) to .pdf outside documentcloud. Add .PDF document to DocumentCloud. Do the redacting. click 'save'. the document should import without any issues.

  9. Academic researchers need DocumentCloud

    I am a graduate student doing primary research for a history dissertation. I have been cobbling together tools to do what it seems DocumentCloud integrates in a much better way. I'd love to see it help researchers like myself who are still stuck with inadequate tools.

  10. Better document search by text tag

    If I search a document by text, with two characters inside " ", it search one or other, but not the two characters together.

  11. Public landing page for my Documents or certain Projects

    I think it would be so cool if I could have an url for Document cloud projects instead of embedding everything into my own website. It would be like www.documentcloud.com/aidworks and then people could just use Document Cloud to navigate all my docs or docs related to my project. Tableau has a similar public function.

  12. Make plain text version of embedded notes available via the API or by default

    When you highlight part of the document and add an annotation, create a plain text version of the highlighted part of the document that can either be retrieved via the API or accessed by the user by default. The user could opt to access the plain text version by clicking "read transcript" (or something of the like) on the embedded note.

    This would help with readability on mobile devices. It would also probably help to give editors the ability to correct the plain text version in case it's not totally accurate.

  13. Allow selecting text on "document" view

    Yes, being able to select (and edit) the OCR text in "text" view is easy, but it requires an extra step that is frustrating when you're working on a lengthy document. I want to be able to select text without switching views, like you can in Adobe Acrobat.

  14. Auto line break removal in text mode

    Would a button that automatically removes line breaks (but maintains paragraphs) in text mode be feasible?

  15. Exporting timelines

    Complex documents are often best made sense of when timelines are extracted from them. The ultility of DocumentCloud's timeline function is limited as one cannot have a complete timeline overview at once, and as one is unable to edit the results.
    I suggest a function to export the timeline to Excel or similar, with values of "Date", "Document excerpt" and "Source [indicating which document and page, and perhaps even a hyperlink back to it in DocumentCloud]".
    In the resulting spreadsheet one would be able to do one's own edits and insertions, making further sense of it all.

  16. Highlight function

    Sometimes I just want to highlight text, not leave a note. I'd love the option to just drag a cursor over a few words or lines to draw attention to it.

  17. BUG: DocumentCloud CSS hides all paragraphs with class p1 / p0 / p2

    DocumentCloud hides all paragraphs with class p1, not just paragraphs inside the document viewer <div>.

    Here's the CSS you generate:

    .DV-viewThumbnails .DV-allAnnotations,.DV-viewThumbnails .DV-text,.DV-viewThumbnails .DV-search,.DV-viewThumbnails .DV-pageCollection,.p0,.p1,.p2 {
    display: none
    }

  18. Search Bar in Embedded Document Set: text not vertically aligned properly

    I've embedded a document set, but am finding that the search bar does not render text properly in several browsers (tried on multiple computers). For some like Chrome, the text is at the top of the bar, while in others it is at the bottom and the bottom half of the text is cut off. Have others experienced this? Is there any way to style/code the search bar?

  19. Add hover feature to URLs internal to PDFs

    In Acrobat Reader, when you hover over text with a URL link, a box appears that displays the URL (and allowing one to click through). It would be very helpful in an embedded DocumentCloud pdf, if such link information could be displayed also -- either as a hover feature, or in the plain text tab generated through OCR. Perhaps this already exists somewhere?

  20. Projects within Projects

    Currently projects work like folders in Document Cloud, and it would be really helpful to be able to drag and drop projects into other projects; so a parent project can be the folder for a lot of connected projects with heavy data sets or files.
