Setting your Preferences

You can set search, document, and other research preferences by selecting the Preferences link in the Navigation Bar at the top-right of the screen. Select or deselect checkboxes (or radio buttons) in the following sections of the Preferences dialogue box that you wish to update and click OK.

Note: Any selections you make in Preferences are applied to all of your research sessions until you change them. This means that when you logout of IntelliConnect, the system maintains all of your Preferences. You can restore system default settings at any time by clicking Restore Defaults | OK. To exit Preferences without saving any of your changes, click Cancel.

Search Preferences

Clear search expressions at logout

By default, the system maintains a rolling history of the last 20 search terms you’ve entered in the search expression field that can be reselected for future searches. When you select the Clear search expressions at logout option, search entries currently saved in the search expression selection field are deleted when you logout.

Create a new tab for each search

By default, IntelliConnect displays the search results of each search you perform on a new tab. When you deselect the Create a new tab for each search option, your search results are displayed on just one tab.

Display search suggestions

By default, IntelliConnect displays search suggestions as you type your search expression. When you deselect the Display search suggestions option, no suggestions are displayed as you type your search expression.

Search Results Preferences

Show Full List view

By default, the system displays your search results (i.e., documents) with excerpts of its contents after each of them. When you deselect this option, only a list of your search results (i.e., documents) will display without any excerpts.

Highlight search terms within search results excerpts

By default, the system displays your search terms highlighted within the document excerpts of the search results list. When you deselect this option, the document excerpts will continue to display after the documents in the results list, but without any of your search terms highlighted.

Show results categorised by document type

By default, IntelliConnect displays your search results by relevance or categorised by document type (i.e. CCH Commentary, News, Cases, Act, Regulations etc.), depending on whether the Show results categorised by document type option is selected or deselected.

If the Show results categorised by document type option is selected, your search results are sorted by document type by default.

If the Show results categorised by document type option is deselected, your search results are sorted by relevance by default.

Note: You can also leave the Show results categorised by document type option selected and simply select the Display by List option below the Narrow Your Results section on the left pane to toggle between the two options while leaving your default setting unchanged.

Document Preferences

Always display in-line graphics in new window

When you select this option, graphics are displayed within documents as links and will open in a new window when you click on the link. Otherwise by default, the graphic will display smaller in size within the current document you have open.

Double-click a document in the results list to open it in:

Help Preferences

Display help icons where available

By default, IntelliConnect displays interactive Help links (e.g., Show me pop-up Help) in areas of IntelliConnect where available. If you do not wish to see these links, deselect this option by unchecking the box. Since the interactive messages in many areas of IntelliConnect display only the first time you encounter them, you can click the Display one-time help messages again button to see them again on your next encounter.

Print/Export/Email Preferences

When printing and emailing documents, include:

Note: When you print a document as text (i.e. select Print as text from the Print menu), the document URL is NOT included even if you have Document title and URL selected in Preferences.

Print multiple documents (non-PDF printing only)

Tip: Select the checkbox below the above options to always include the document path (or “breadcrumb trail” to the document within the text of the document you are printing, emailing, or exporting.
