Analyzing Part of a Document

You can make Contract Tools analyze only a part of your document. This is useful if you want to exclude content from Contract Tools’ analysis, for example:

  • A cover page, a table of contents, and other content that may appear at the beginning of a document

  • Signature blocks, exhibits, schedules, and other content that may appear at the end of a document

This is also useful if you want to analyze a contract that’s part of a larger document.

To make Contract Tools analyze only a part of your document:
  1. Select the part of your document that you want Contract Tools to analyze. To select text, drag the mouse pointer over some text. Or, set the insertion point (cursor) at the beginning of the text that you want to select, and then Shift-click the end of the text that you want to select.

  2. Click the arrow to the right of the Analyze button at the bottom of the Contract Tools pane to show the Analyze pop‑up menu.

  3. Choose “Set Scope of Analysis to Current Selection” from the Analyze pop‑up menu.

By default, Contract Tools automatically sets a suitable scope of analysis when you open a document. To turn this off, choose Preferences from the pop‑up menu at the top of the Contract Tools pane to show the Preferences view, and then deselect the “Automatically set scope of analysis when opening documents” checkbox. Contract Tools does not automatically set a new scope of analysis if the document already has one.

To see the scope of analysis, choose “Show Scope of Analysis” from the Analyze pop‑up menu. To make Contract Tools analyze your entire document, choose Analyze Entire Document from the Analyze pop‑up menu.

Note:Documents that have a scope of analysis include a hidden bookmark named _PaperSoftwareContractToolsAnalysisRange. When you choose Analyze Entire Document, you delete this hidden bookmark. To learn about bookmarks in Word, search for “bookmarks” in Word Help.
