The file list

Just a question. I have more than 1000 papers stored in the DX. So I have a very long list of all the files. Need I move the 5-way down one by one until I find what I want to read. I think this is boring because I can not click the 5-way 500 times before I find the file. Or the list can be divided into pages and I can use to 5-way to turn page? I think this should be faster.

Also could someone tell me whether I search a file in the list, no matter which format the file is? I mean the file could be pdf, txt,etc.

You could use the Next Page button (not 5-way) to scroll by pages. You could also search for the file you want. Based on the wording of your question, it sounds like you already have the DX, so go ahead and play with it. You won't hurt anything.

Assuming it works like the K2 ... if you know the title (and if it is sorted by titles), you can type in the first letter of the title and click to go to the paper. Even if you don't you could type in a random letter such as "M" and click to skip all the "A" through "L" titles.

If you sort by title or author, you can use the first letter of the title or author to go to that point in the book listing, but only if that letter exists. For example, if no Q exists, it won't take you to R. If you sort by most recent first, you can put in the number of the page in the listing you want to go to.
