Corpus indexing overview

If you add a lot of documents to a LiveDocs corpus, memoQ indexes the new documents in a background process. If there is a large amount of text to index, it might slow down memoQ, or eventually, the entire computer. Using the Corpus indexing overview dialog, you can see the status of the indexing process for each LiveDocs corpus, and you can temporarily suspend the indexing operation if you need your computer to run faster.
