Laserfiche conveniently allows you to share shortcuts to documents and folders with other Laserfiche users, allowing them to directly open the relevant information instead of having to browse for it. In addition to creating these shortcuts, you can also create a shortcut to a specific page of an imaged document in Laserfiche. This is especially useful if you need to direct others to a specific section of a long document.

To create a shortcut to a specific page of an imaged document:

  • In the Laserfiche Client, select the document containing the page you want to create a shortcut to.
  • While pressing the CTRL and SHIFT keys, drag the document out of Laserfiche into Windows. This will create a .lfe shortcut to that document.
  • In Windows, open the .lfe file in any text editor (e.g., Notepad).
  • The shortcut text will be in the following format. Repository Name is the name of the repository where the document is located and ID Number is the Entry ID number for the document:

<?xmlversion=’1.0′ encoding=’Unicode’?>


<repository name=’Repository Name‘>

<entry id=ID NUMBER‘/>



  • Add ‘page=Page Number’ next to Entry ID so the text looks like the following:

<?xmlversion=’1.0′ encoding=’Unicode’?>


<repository name=’Repository Name’>

<entry id=’ID NUMBER‘ page=’Page Number’/>



  • Replace Page Number with the page number minus one (e.g., to go directly to page 3 of a document, replace Page Number with 2).
  • Save the changes to the .lfe file and close the text editor. When you double-click the shortcut, the document will open directly to the specified page in Laserfiche.
