The leftmost part of the Catalogues window is the Browsing area. Here you can browse through Catalogues you have chosen to display from the Select Catalogues dialog. Browse by using the tree view or the folders to the left of the tree view.
You can choose which content of the Catalogues you want to display in the Viewing area by activating or deactivating the check boxes next to each Catalogue. For example, if you have a large amount of catalogues in the Viewing area and do not want to see the Configura Characters at this moment, uncheck the checkbox next to the Characters Catalogue in order to hide those objects in the Viewing area.
If you want to be able to access the catalogues without internet access, toggle the Available offline slider to ON. Please note that this has to be done while you have internet access in order for the catalogues to be synced for offline use. If you cannot see the Available Offline sliders, you may need to expand the tree view area. Hover over the bar between the tree view and the Viewing area until you see arrows. Click and drag the arrows to the right until you see Available Offline.
At the top of the Browsing area, you will see the Bookmarks folder. Expand any catalogue and right click on a the folder icon and select Set Bookmark. The bookmarked product level will be copied to the Bookmarks page, making the products easily accessible. To remove a bookmark, simply click the yellow star on the Bookmarks page, or right click and choose Remove Bookmark.
There is also a Go to Location option on the Bookmarks page when you right click. This takes you to the original location of the folder in the tree view. Once the catalogue is uninstalled/turned off without the bookmark first being removed, the “missing bookmark” label is shown instead. Bookmarked items are saved as bookmarks.cmcbm in folder C:/Users/*/Documents/CET Documents/Catalog Bookmarks/
