One of the benefits of working with Studio is that it is unique amongst CAT tools, in providing Document Structure Information (DSI) that can be used to help provide additional context when translating.
The downside of this feature is that you have to actively click the DSI column, to see this information for each segment, and you can't work on the translation while it is being displayed.
The same thing goes for comments, which can only be seen by scrolling through the comments view.
To see both the DSI information (out of the box) and to view comments, requires at least 5 'clicks'
The DSI Viewer solves this issue, by providing you with a small viewer, that you can position somewhere convenient on your screen, and this displays the DSI information and comments for every segment you enter.
Very handy when working with DITA files, custom XML files or even SDLXLIFF files that have been exported from SDL Passolo (these contain string IDs that are very useful when translating).
It's also particularly useful when working with Bilingual Excel files, as these support the ability to add information from the Excel file to the Document Structure Information and/or comments.
Once the DSI Viewer is installed- you can view both the DSI information and the comments in one single window without the need for several 'clicks'
Once installed, and you have opened a project, you will find the DSI viewer on the View Tab in Studio
To activate, simply click on the icon and move the Window to a suitable place in the UI

Optimized Field Width for displayed information.
The DSI viewer has now been optimized to display the ID content in its entirety due to an expanded field width,
Previously when an SDLXLIFF had been exported from Passolo with three columns (Source, Target and ID), the DSI view was unable to display the information correctly in the DSI window due to space limitations.
This has now been optimized to show the ID content in its full length, removing the necessity to click into the actual ID column
