Eliminating scrollbars in the Search Criteria window in the thin clientmain image


If a project in PaperVision Enterprise has too many index fields, users will have to scroll down to see all of the fields when performing a search in the thin client. There is a way to modify one of the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) files to show all of the index fields at one time, and eliminate the scrollbar.


Cascading Style Sheets (.css files) are used to format HTML documents. Users can modify one of these files in order to display all of the index fields in the Search Criteria window without the need to scroll.

Follow these steps to modify the CSS file:

1. Browse to

C:\Program Files\Digitech Systems\PaperVision\PVEWeb\Support_Files

2. Open default_style.css in Notepad

3. Perform a search for “#contentBody .fieldSet”

4. Add the line “height: auto;” to that section. It will now look like this:

#contentBody .fieldSet


width: 600px;

margin: 0 auto 0 auto;

cursor: default;

border: 1px solid;

border-color: #c0c0c0;

height: auto;


5. Perform a search for “Start Search Criteria”. Remove “max-height: 268px;” from the #docIndexFields section, which directly follows the line “/* Start Search Criteria */”. The section should now look like this:



_height: auto !important;

overflow: atuo;

padding: 0 5px 5px 5px;

margin-bottom: 5px;


Note: The PaperVision client interface is designed to accommodate the scrollbars when needed. If making the above changes to the default_style.css, be aware that the website may display incorrectly and require further modifications to display properly.
