New document display frame on Securities Mosaic SEC Filings page
Last week, we release a redesigned and enhanced version of our document display frame for SEC Filings. It’s only the first stage – a kind of sneak peek — of an ongoing complete redesign and enhancement of our SEC Filings search page, the bulk of which will be released later this fall. (More information on that forthcoming.)
The new document display optimizes presentation of the document text, re-establishing it prominently in the reader’s visual hierarchy and ensuring there is “breathing room” between text and the edge of the frame. The redesign also boasts two new feature enhancements:
Advanced text search capability added to document level. Harness the power of Boolean connectors and nested search terms when you need to locate words or phrases within a document. While we’ve long offered advanced text search capability on initial searching — and offer highlighted text hits from that initial search at the document view — we haven’t offered the ability to perform a new advanced text query within a particular document. Your browser’s Ctrl-F command lets you find specific words, but it lacks the power and flexibility offered by advanced text search, where proximity, wildcard, and “OR” connectors are at your command. On Securities Mosaic, you now have that capability.
Navigation feature added to Reference Retriever. Last year, we dramatically upgraded our Reference Retriever tool by adding, to the document text itself, hyperlinks to references made to other filings or exhibits. Now, we’ve added a navigation component to the tool, allowing you to quickly locate those hyperlinked references. Just click the search icon, and all references within the document will be highlighted in green. You can then arrow from one to the next; or click the hyperlink within the document to locate the referenced document.
