Why do some of my compound objects appear with a scroll bar while others make you click through the pages?

  • You've set up a compound object in a CONTENTdm collection, but it doesn't appear like other titles in your collection. Instead of showing a scroll bar where users can scroll through all the pages, the scroll bar only scrolls a few pages at a time and the user has to click through page buttons to move forward between them.
Applies to

The display of compound objects is dependent upon the kind of compound object you create. If you choose to create monographs, you will get a scroll bar and all of the pages will appear at once down the right-hand side with no thumbnails. If you choose to create document objects, you will see thumbnails down the right-hand side and it will be  paginated so you have to click through the pages.
