|Acrolinx Server||All Versions|
In the category manager it is possible to create complex hierarchical data structures which may be difficult to use with normal list fields.
For example, when adding a domain in the term edit page, users may have to scroll through a long list field to find the correct list item.
A Standard Category-Based Field
If you have categories which are organized hierarchically, you can configure the Terminology Manager to display all category fields in a tree view. The tree view for category-based fields is similar to the tree view used on the category manager page .
In the tree view, the hierarchical relationships between categories are easier to see. Users can also expand and collapse categories which contain many subcategories.

Save your changes and restart the core server.
Important: There are currently two usability issues to consider when configuring the tree view. First, the tree view is currently not available for category-based fields which appear in the term import wizard . Secondly, a category-based field can obscure the OK button in the filter menu when the tree view is fully expanded.
