Document View

You can use a Document View to display documents in a number of different file formats.

The following file formats are supported:

  • iWork documents (Pages, Numbers, Keynote)
  • Microsoft Office documents (Office ‘97 and newer)
  • Rich Text Format (RTF) documents
  • PDF files
  • Images (PNG, JPG, …)


To show the properties of the Document View, click the Properties tab (the slider icon) in the upper right sidebar.

  • Name
    Here you give the element a name. This name is only used within appdoo. For example, you can quickly see in the outline where each Document View is located. You can also edit the name by double-clicking on the Document View in the outline. We recommend that you assign unique names when working with Layout Constraints and Data Links.

  • List of Documents
    Drag into this list all documents from the Files folder of the outline that are to be displayed in the Document View. To remove documents from the list, click the “×” button to the right of the document’s file name. You can change the order by Drag & Drop.

    If more than one document has been added to this list, you can switch from document to document within the iOS app by sideways swiping.


  • Hidden appdoo - Elements - Document View (Advanced)

    If you activate the “Hidden” checkbox, your Document View will still be present on your work space, but will not be displayed. This can be useful, for example, if you only want to display the Document View under certain circumstances. You can control this via the “Hidden” field in the “Data Links” area.


All information about this area can be found on the separate Geometry page.
