Quick-edit policies

New feature for those who work with setting up Next®. 

Over the last few releases we have introduced a number of new possibilities editing documents directly from Next®. The original option was one-click edit of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Then came one-click edit of PDFs for editing and commenting documents in PDF. Most recently One-click edit of AutoCAD. And even One-click reply to email, is also a quick-edit feature. 

All of these features are either priced separately or come as part of an extension such as Next® Microsoft Office support, Next® PDF Archive option, and Next® Emails. If you do not have these options, you of course do not want your UI to be cluttered by icons and options that is related to these. Even if you have Next® PDF Archive option, you may not want everyone to be able to do in-document commenting on your contracts and invoices. 

The solution to this is Quick-edit policies.
