Analyzing Part of a Document

You can make Contract Tools analyze 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 appears at the beginning of a document

  • Signature blocks, exhibits, schedules, and other content that appears 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 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 text. Or, set the insertion point (cursor) at the beginning of the text you want to select, and then Shift-click the end of the text you want to select.

  2. Click the arrow next to the Analyze button at the bottom of the Contract Tools pane; see The Contract Tools Pane to learn more.

  3. Choose Analyze Selection from the pop‑up menu that appears.

To see the part of your document that Contract Tools analyzes, choose Show Analyzed Selection. To make Contract Tools analyze your entire document, choose Analyze Document.

Note: The part of your document that Contract Tools analyzes is included in your document as a hidden bookmark named _PaperSoftwareContractToolsAnalysisRange. When you choose Analyze Document, you delete this hidden bookmark. To learn about bookmarks, search for “bookmarks” in Word Help.

By default, when a document opens, Contract Tools automatically selects the part of the document that’s best suited to analysis, if possible. To turn this off, show the Contract Tools pane, click the Preferences button, click Advanced below Analysis, and then deselect the “Set analysis range when documents open” checkbox.

Also, by default, Contract Tools does not analyze content within tables, even if you make Contract Tools analyze a part of your document that includes tables. To learn how to make Contract Tools analyze content within tables, see Analyzing Tables.
