Provisions, provision numbers, and provision titles (see Working with Provisions)
Defined terms and uses (see Working with Defined Terms)
Cross-references (see Working with Cross-References)
Common contract drafting errors (see Proofreading Documents)
Placeholders, bracketed text, highlighted text, and similar items (see Finding To‑Dos)

Contract Tools’ analysis updates automatically as you type and delete text, and you can also update Contract Tools’ analysis manually after you make other kinds of changes; see Updating Contract Tools’ Analysis to learn more.
You can limit Contract Tools’ analysis to part of a document, which is useful for excluding items like tables of contents and signatures from Contract Tools’ analysis; see Analyzing Part of a Document to learn more.
To customize how Contract Tools analyzes your document, you can adjust analysis settings. To learn about analysis settings for defined terms, see Finding Defined Terms; to learn about analysis settings for drafting errors, see Checking for Drafting Errors.
