The Switch to relatives feature is only available if an administrator has configured the portal to display it. If this condition is not met, the Reader page will keep its legacy appearance. Information about navigating the legacy Reader page is available in previous versions of this document.

The Switch to relatives feature makes it possible to quickly switch from one version of a document to another by selecting metadata within the document itself. Examples include switching between different languages, Operating Systems, and product versions.

Since not all metadata are a good candidate for the Switch to relatives feature, administrators enable the feature only for selected metadata. This metadata is displayed as a menu in the Title bar of the Reader page for structured documents and the Viewer page for unstructured documents. Each menu serves as a facet to filter on whichever version of the document the user wishes to target.

When the Title bar is collapsed, the menus are available to the right of the document's title as follows:

Selecting a menu displays all available values for the selected facet as follows:

When the Title bar is expanded, the menus are available under the document's title as follows:
