New architecture permits more features and functions.

DAYTON, Ohio's LEXIS-NEXIS has unveiled its four-year, multimillion-dollar infrastructure overhaul, producing a state-of-the-art client-server architecture for its online service. LEXIS-NEXIS Office 97, says the company, has two components: LEXIS-NEXIS Office Version 6.0 for Windows 3.x and LEXIS-NEXIS Office Version 7.0 for Windows 95 or Windows NT.

LEXIS-NEXIS Office 97 offers Internet access via Netscape Navigator, along with a host of other new features including the ability to tag documents for later downloading or printing, easier search formulation and additional source selection options. For the first time, the company notes, users of the service will be able to work in multiple windows, launching two or more searches and browsing two or more answer sets. In addition, Version 7.0 offers split-screen viewing of search results, drag-and-drop printing and right mouse-button functionality.
