To view and hide the Details Notebook
Apply the necessary filters for the events. For more information about applying filters, see Filtering event display for all abnormalities.
The Event(s): label on the right side of the event list notebook header displays the number of events for which the filters have been applied. The format in which it is displayed is Event(s): <Number of filtered events>. For example, Event(s): 200, where 200 is the total number of filtered events.
Event count is not displayed for the event list for which the Details Notebook pane is not present. For example, event count will not display for the latest 10 events and maximized event list on Tile and Canvas views. Event count is also not displayed if the number of events for a particular filter is zero.
If you select more cards than can be displayed, use the tiny right and left arrows to the right and left of the Details Notebook to navigate through the cards.
In the Summary card, when you click Edit Preferences, attributes related to Baseline and Threshold for Intelligent events are not available for selection. These attributes cannot be displayed in the default Summary card view.
