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 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.
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.
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.
Choose “Set Scope of Analysis to 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, show the Contract Tools pane, click the Preferences button, click Advanced below Analysis, and then deselect the “Detect scope of analysis when documents open” 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 “Discard Scope and Analyze Document” from the Analyze pop‑up menu.
Note: Documents that have a scope of analysis include a hidden bookmark named _PaperSoftwareContractToolsAnalysisRange. When you choose “Discard Scope and Analyze Document”, you delete this hidden bookmark. To learn about bookmarks, search for “bookmarks” in Word Help.
By default, Contract Tools does not analyze content within tables, even if tables are included in a scope of analysis that you select. To learn how to make Contract Tools analyze content within tables, see Analyzing Tables.
