  • Publication number: 20070192729
    Abstract: A document overview scrollbar renders a miniaturized replica of an entire document. The document overview scrollbar provides an efficient and expeditious tool for searching, navigating, and/or editing documents. A visual pattern in the document is easily identifiable in the replica in the scrollbar. This is particularly advantageous when the document is code being rendered by an integrated development environment (IDE), such as a code editor. Indentations, bookmarks, and/or breakpoints in the document are easily recognizable in the replica in the scrollbar, and vice versa.
