Configure OpenKM Add-In
First you must select the OpenKM tool bar option to set your configuration values to access OpenKM from the client computer. If you've got the OpenKM Add-In already installed, this may not be needed.
When you set your configuration values, a folder called OpenKM is created in your user My documents folder. In this OpenKM folder, a configuration file called openkm.xml and another file called document.xml are created that the OpenKM Add-in uses to store some document editing information. You should not edit or delete these files.
Uploading a new file
Before you begin, make sure the file you wish to upload is a) saved to disk (or OpenKM with throw an error) and b) has the file name you wish it to have within the OpenKM repository otherwise you will have to go through the OpenKM web interface to change the filename (true up to at least OpenKM 5.0)). After clicking on the add new document button - , a folder tree window appears. You must select a folder within this window before you are allowed to upload the file.
Once you've found the correct folder, highlight it and click the Add Button, and the document will be uploaded to OpenKM. Once the process is complete a notification window will pop-up.
