How do I view the search terms in my results graphically?

The graphical view shows the location and distribution of each of your search terms in each of the documents in your results in a graphical display. The graphical view is available in both your results list and in the full document. At a glance, this view gives you an idea of how often your search terms occur in your results or a specific document, which terms appear in close proximity to others, and which segments they appear in. You can use the graphical view to navigate directly to points in your documents where your terms appear together, or select a highlighted term to view an extract of the document where the term appears.

When you run a search, the graphical view displays a list of your search terms at the top of your results, each highlighted by a different color. The color of each search term corresponds with the lines in a search term location bar displayed in each document in your results. The search term location bar is divided into the same segments that occur in the document. The highlighted search terms are also displayed in the excerpt of text displayed with each document.
