common tasks

Here are step-by-step instructions for completing common tasks:
For information about navigating through a document, see navigation.

open a document for viewing

In the document list view, tap on a document's file name to open the document. If the file is not one of the
standard document types, then iSilo™ opens the file in text mode.

add a bookmark to a document

While viewing a document, you can bookmark the current location using a named bookmark so that you can easily jump back to the bookmarked location at any time by selecting the bookmark from a list of the bookmarks you have added to the document.

To add a bookmark to mark the current location in the document, follow these steps:

  1. If the command bar is hidden, tap the area of the screen where the command bar would be to display it.
  2. In the command bar, tap the Bookmarks button to go to the Bookmarks scene.
  3. In the Bookmarks scene, scroll to the bottom of the list and tap Add Bookmark. iSilo™ presents the Add Bookmark dialog and suggests a name for the bookmark, the text of which is taken from the first text line currently at the top of the screen.
  4. In the text field, modify or replace the suggested name with the name you want to give the bookmark.
  5. Tap Save to add the bookmark. To exit the dialog without adding a bookmark, tap Cancel or swipe from right to left in the gesture area below the screen.
For more about bookmarks and using them, see
bookmarks.

search for text within a document

While viewing a document, you can search for text within the document either localized to the current page or through the entire document.

To search for text, follow these steps:

  1. If the command bar is hidden, tap the area of the screen where the command bar would be to display it.
  2. In the command bar, tap the Find button . iSilo™ presents the Find dialog.
  3. In the text field, enter the text you want to find.
  4. Mark Match Case if you want the search to be case-sensitive or unmark it to make the search case-insensitive.
  5. Mark Entire Document to search the entire document or unmark it to search only within the current page.
  6. For the Range option, select whether you want to search Down (e.g., forward), Up (e.g., backward), or from Top to bottom.
  7. Tap Find to begin the search. To exit the dialog without beginning the search, tap Cancel or swipe from right to left in the gesture area below the screen.
While iSilo™ searches the document, it presents a progress bar to show you how far it has searched within the search range and how far it needs to go. You can cancel the search at any time by tapping the X in the progress bar. The search stops as soon as iSilo™ finds an occurrence of the text to find or reaches the end of the search range.

If iSilo™ finds an occurrence of the text to find, it jumps to the location of the occurrence and highlights it. You can search for the next occurrence by tapping the Find Again button in the command bar.
