Navigator Overview
The Navigator allows you to find and browse for files and other information stored in Windchill. Click the Navigator bar to expand or collapse the pane. Once you click outside the navigator pane, it will collapse; however, you have the option to pin the Navigator to keep it expanded.
Click the pin icon in the Navigator bar to keep the pane expanded. The current Windchill page is then resized to fit with the expanded Navigator.
Once pinned, click the unpin icon in the Navigator to collapse the pane.
The Navigator contains the following tabs:
Browse tab – allows you to navigate to various contexts you have access to, such as your projects or products; also contains Recently Visited, which displays your recently accessed contexts and workspaces.
Search tab – allows you to search for objects in Windchill by entering your own advanced search parameters, or by using a saved or historic search.
