The navigator is available when the Crossware Mail Signature configuration database is opened. For any option selected, the content can be seen in the right hand pane.

Signature Configuration

Signatures: All signature documents - server and local signatures. When created, they appear in the Drafts view, and then need to be published to be used in signatures.
Sub Signatures: Sub-signatures are used to add conditional parts to signatures. They are defined here, and can be used in more than one signature.
Lookup Configuration: Formulas that extract data or images from another source (eg address book or image library) and insert into signatures.
Rules: Rules are simple TRUE/FALSE decisions based around a Notes Formula, that determine whether a signature should be applied. Rules can be used on Signature and Sub Signature configurations, and also in the filter on Server Configurations.
Image Library: enables images to be stored & maintained in one place in the config database. They can then be inserted directly into multiple signatures as inline images, or used in lookup configurations.
