Viewing files in the file manager as icons (Defense Mapping)

The product library file manager provides you with different ways to view the files that are associated with each level of the product library. Any type of file can be copied into the product library and associated with a solution, product class, series, product, instance, or area of interest.

You can view the files associated with other items in the product library using the icons view. The icons view displays the files associated with a level of the product library using larger icons. The file name appears below the icon.
