How to manually create Right Click options for PowerPDF in iManage Filesite or DeskSite.


Nuance PowerPDF 2.1 uses the following commands in the registry key of [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Interwoven\WorkSite\Client\FileSite\Commands\Menus\Document]

"NPDFImanAddon.OpenInPro@Open in Nuance, NPDFImanAddon.CreatePDF"  

To manually enter the references for the file-level commands:

Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Interwoven\WorkSite\Client\FileSite\Commands\Menus\Document

NOTE:  If you are having an issue with DeskSite, replace "FileSite" in the key above with "DeskSite".

Backup the registry key. (Right-click the registry key, click Export, and choose a known location to save it.  This is just in case!)

In the Registry Editor, browse to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Interwoven\WorkSite\Client\FileSite\Commands\Menus\Document] and double-click the Commands value name in the right-hand pane. If the following Nuance commands above do not exist in Value data, add it to the location of your choice (the order of the commands in Value Data dictate the order of commands in the context menu).  The commands are delimited by commas.

EXAMPLE WITH POWERPDF:  "NPDFImanAddon.OpenInPro@Open in Nuance, NPDFImanAddon.CreatePDF",iManExt3.NewOpenCmd,iManExt.OpenROCmd,iManExt.PrintCmd,iManExt.ViewCmd,iManExt.QuickViewCmd,@20026,-,iManExt.SendDocCopyCmd,SendNrl/Url,iManExt.CheckoutCmd,iManExt.CheckinCmd,iManExt.ExportCmd,-,IManExt2.IManRefileCmd,IManExt2.IManMoveContentsCmd,Copy,-,iManExt.PurgeCmd,iManExt.UnlockCmd,iManExt.DeleteCmd,-,@33700,Utilities,@304,-,IManExt2.IManCreateShortcutsCmd@309,...ToFavoritesCmd@33989,-,iManExt3.FreezeDocumentCmd,iManExt3.UnFreezeDocumentCmd,DocINFO,IManExt3.FixShortcutCmd,IManExt2.IManPropertiesCmd

In the example above, I added the Nuance commands to the beginning of the list so that they show toward the top of the list when you right-click on the file in Desksite.

An example of the registry is attached, "iManage right click commands example.reg.txt"

Note: the specific registry key may change depending on how the iManage software is installed.  For example, this key is strictly the outlook right click for filesite.



Note: these have changed since PowerPDF 2.0

In PowerPDF 2.0, the commands are:
