Thumbnails for the graphics in your system are generated during the DBDOC project build (and cached on the build machine). Thumbnails are not generated for regular CAD/CLD diagrams, nor for text documents (except for PDFs). Clicking on a thumbnail (like clicking on document title hotspot above it) will cause that graphic to be displayed in the content pane. Right-clicking on a thumbnail shows a popup menu that allows you to mark the graphic for printing, or to rotate it.
