If all you require is office automation support, (word processor formats, spreadsheet formats, database formats, Adobe Acrobat PDF, and small-format raster and bitmap graphics files), Cimmetry Systems Inc. offers Panoramic!, a low-cost viewing and annotation solution.

Panoramic! is the perfect desktop utility for your file access and network sharing needs. You can easily display and annotate your documents without needing the authoring application. A must-have utility for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. View, annotate, hyperlink, and print many file formats including word processor, spreadsheet, database, graphics and more!

Panoramic! is an extremely powerful tool that can save a great deal of time and money. With Panoramic!, the end user does not have to waste valuable time opening different applications to view multiple documents, nor does the organization have to spend money obtaining multiple applications for end users that just need to view documents. Panoramic! is also the ideal tool to help eliminate problems normally encountered with incompatible formats in email attachments.


Panoramic! for Windows is perfectly suited for those who wish to automate the document reviewing process. It serves as an effective information access and sharing package.

Interested in eliminating the need for physical revisions? Want to rid the office of stacks of papers with endless revision notes? Panoramic! is a valuable solution for automating the review process; it eliminates the need for paper-shuffling within and between departments. Its electronic annotations are the tools you need to drastically reduce paper use and automate the review process.

There are a number of annotation entities to choose from: circles, boxes, clouds, text, highlight, freehand, post-it notes, symbols, and OLE objects.

Use these entities to annotate all types of supported document including raster, word processing, spreadsheets and database formats. Moreover, Panoramic! saves its annotation files without modification to the original documents, thereby maintaining their integrity.

Panoramic! also allows for multiple annotation files for any given document, which makes it the perfect solution for viewing files which undergo a multiple-step revision process. You can assign different layers, files and colors to best identify each annotation according to focus area, reviewer, department or any other criteria. You can also keep track of annotation files by using the file information feature, which helps you identify any annotation file by various user-defined criteria. Keeping track of revisions has never been easier.

Panoramic! also features the Panoramic! Notes Editor, Cimmetry Systems' powerful post-it note utility. Write up to pages of comments, the reviewer will only see a note icon - the clutter of long text entities on the screen is eliminated. Simply double-click on the icon to view the note contents.

Panoramic! also has a Hyperlinking feature that gives you the option of establishing logical links between files. For example: you could link a sales report created in a word processor to a budget created in a spreadsheet. Simply establish the hyperlink in your first document, and use Panoramic!'s intuitive user interface to set a target file, application, DDE server or DLL.


You have received an email attachment, but can't open it because you don't have the authoring application. With Panoramic! your problems will be solved. Panoramic! integrates with your MAPI compliant email system and eliminates the incompatibilities normally encountered with the delivery of attachments. With over 150 file formats supported, you'll be able to quickly view and print the information you need.
