Brava Office Viewer

This document describes an optional FileHold feature that is no longer available. It is retained for existing users only.

FileHold can be customized to include one of three versions of the powerful Brava Document Viewer. The following are the three levels of viewers available:

  • Brava Office Viewer

  • Brava Office Viewer with CAD support

  • Brava Office Viewer Engineering Edition

The viewer allows users to open, read and work with a myriad of file and document formats, even if they do not have the proper application. See the list of supported file and document formats for the Enterprise Office Viewer.

The viewer comes with other functionalities that allow users to convert files and publish them in PDF, TIFF, DWF, CSF formats and it also supports watermarking and other mark-up features, secure document creation with digital rights protection, redaction and printing.

The Brava Document Viewer is an optional component of the FileHold document management software and comes with three licensing options. These options control the type of file formats that a given user can open. The viewer can only be used by the FileHold Desktop Application (FDA).
