No...unfortunately that's it. We have laptop users when not connected to the network and they forget to reconnect and we have PC users that lose network connection and its not obvious enough that you are offline. Our factory users have a shortcut to the search tool on their desktop that they use to search for drawings. They just view PDF drawings and there's no indication anywhere in the search tool that they are in offline mode.
In two posts (Re: Multiple problems with EPDM) you mention searching while EPDM is offline. When I go to offline mode the EPDM Search tool disappears. I can't see a way to access it (embedded or stand alone)
It is terrible that the regular windows search never works (on or off line) inside the vault, but having no search is even worse.
