DISCO has implemented two new document viewer improvements. First, we’ve made managing your document notes much easier. Second, redactions are now directly integrated into the viewer, so you don’t have to navigate to another screen to see them.
You will also notice that we've added an additional field for entering privilege notes. Anything entered here will now appear in the privilege log. When you click Add a Note or a Privilege Note in the side panel, a dialog box for both the document note and the privilege note opens.
From here you can edit and save notes. Privilege notes will automatically show up in the downloadable privilege log, and document notes will continue to show up in the downloadable search results index. These improvements also pave the way for us to add multiple document notes, annotations, and other improvements in the near future.
Our second improvement integrates redactions directly into the viewer. This means that redactions are immediately visible when reviewing a document. The link in the left panel will trigger the ability to add and edit redactions directly in the viewer, so you don’t have to navigate to a separate redaction screen. Just click Add Redaction, make your redactions right in the document viewer, add your redaction reason, and then click Save.
Once you've saved the redaction, you can choose to view or hide the redaction with a button in the top left of the PDF viewer.
You can also view and edit redactions at any zoom level, giving you more flexibility and precision.
