SciNote enables you to preview images, protocols and Microsoft Office files, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
The images can be uploaded under the individual protocol step or results within a task. To preview an image simply click on a certain image thumbnail or its filename and a preview screen opens.
As for the protocols, protocol names in the Protocols repository become clickable links. When you click on a protocol name the Protocol preview window shows the protocol information (creation and last modified date, authors, protocol description, protocol steps and keywords).
Microsoft Office Online supports viewing of many major Microsoft Office file types. However, MS Office Online supports certain file formats for editing such as:
Word: .docx, .docm, .odt
Excel: .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb, .ods
Powerpoint: .pptx, ppsx, .odp

As for the PDF, text and other non-Microsoft Office files, they can only be downloaded and then opened. However, you can convert the PDF file into Word document and then upload it to one of the protocol steps.
