5. Check if under the 'Plugins' tab your 'QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1' is up to date. This plugin will open the 'iWork' application and display the native version of your documents (e.g., Numbers, Preview). It should be always ‘Enabled’
6. Close the Preferences window and login to your
Lexbe eDiscovery Platform account, go to the ‘Browse’ page to view all document within the current case and select any native file document to be opened in a new tab (e.g. .doc/.xls/.ppt document).


7. In order to view the original file, click on the Original tab. A new window will be open and you should select the option according to the type of native file you selected. ‘Open with Numbers, Preview or Keynotes’.


8. The original document will automatically open itself in native view using one of the applications from ‘iWork’ from the Firefox browser. On this example, we selected an Excel file which will be opened using the application called 'Numbers' for Mac.


Note: When using your Safari the configuration path is under ‘Help>Installed Plug-ins’ menu.
