Getting Started

To use Graffiti first open the ixbrl documents with your browser and click the graffiti button/bookmarklet to highlight ixbrl tagged items.

Tag details

Click on a tagged(highlighted) item to show the ixbrl details.


View ixbrl data, as tables or JSON where appropriate.

Search for a figure, tag name or ixbrl property.

Highlight and navigate

Clicking on an item in a table will highlight the item in the document and take you straight to it.

Export the data as JSON or CSV.

Export the data to use in other fancy analytical tools or plain old excel.

Graffiti – Notes

Add graffiti notes to the accounts, by clicking “add” from the “graffiti” submenu and click anywhere with text/figures and then place/move the note for optimal clarity.

The notes are stored by the browser cache, so remember to save a copy of the document if sharing it or before clearing the browser cache.

Simple setup

To set up, you just drag the bookmarklet to your bookmark bar. It literally takes seconds so try now.
