Microsoft VISTA has enhanced the File Explorer by making it a highly graphical and visual desktop tool. For example, rather than seeing generic icons for folders and say bitmaps, you now see thumbnails of what's in the folders and a scalable thumbnail of the actual bitmap. This graphical display of data works its way down to almost all data objects on your desktop and it makes finding data quick and easy.
Alchemy PUBLISHER has implemented the same enhancement to the navigation and management of Projects. You can now use the Thumbnail Navigator to visually inspect the contents of a project. Simply clicking on a thumbnail is all that is required to start translating, engineering or testing.
