Filtering the Smart Connection panel by file type

Filtering the Smart Connection panel by file type

By default, the Smart Connection panel shows all types of files: layouts, images, articles, Dossiers and so on. Most of the time though, you only want to see files of a certain type, especially when working with separate Smart Connection panels.

This can be done by using the Smart Connection panel Filter.

Types of files to filter on

The filter can be used to filter by the following types of files:

  • Layouts
  • Articles
  • Images
  • Layout Modules
  • Dossiers
  • All file types other than the ones listed above

Using the filter

Step 1. Access the Smart Connection panel.

Step 2. Make sure that the Smart Connection panel is run in Browse mode (which it is by default).
