ProjectCentre Mobile - Consolidate the Document pages

Description

The pages available when accessing a document on the app have been redesigned to result in fewer pages.

Benefits

The were too many pages to swipe through when accessing a ProjectCentre document, making it harder to get to the information you wanted. Instead of separating the title, addressing and history pages we've combined all of them into the Details page, resulting a more streamlined experience. The Conflicts page has been removed and will now only display when a document conflict needs to be resolved.

Functionality

The functionality of each of the pages has remained the same, only their location has changed.
