  • Chrome Omnibox
    • Chrome users can access the Nuxeo omnibox by entering keyword nx in the URL box, then TAB.
    • Entering the correct path or GUID of an existing document will open the document JSON in a separate tab.
    • Entering text will perform a full-text search or you can enter an NXQL query.
    • Searches return the first 5 results in a dropdown window from the omnibox.
  • Link to our Customer Feedback Portal from the About page. You can vote for requested features or even suggest your own, anonymously if you wish.
