Managing Drafting Errors

You can use the Drafting Errors view to manage drafting errors. To show the Drafting Errors view, choose Drafting Errors from the pop‑up menu at the top of the Contract Tools pane.

Here are ways to use the Drafting Errors view:
  • To sort drafting errors by category, by count, or by location, click one of the buttons at the top left of the view.

  • To copy a list of drafting errors to the clipboard, click the Copy button at the top right of the view.

  • To go to where a drafting error appears, click a drafting error in the view.

  • To ignore a drafting error, click a drafting error in the view to select it, and then click the Ignore button at the bottom of the view or press the Backspace key. You can also use the Context button to ignore drafting errors; see The Context Button to learn how. Drafting errors you ignore are saved with your document by default; see Saving Analysis Settings to learn more.

    Note: You ignore categories of drafting errors, not individual drafting errors. You cannot ignore list order errors and unmatched punctuation errors.

  • To restore a drafting error you’ve ignored, choose Show Ignored Drafting Errors from the Options pop‑up menu at the bottom of the view, select the ignored drafting error you want to restore, and then click the Restore button at the bottom of the view or press the Backspace key.

  • To quickly restore all ignored drafting errors, choose Restore All Ignored Drafting Errors from the Options pop‑up menu at the bottom of the view.

  • To quickly fix all formatting inconsistencies, choose Fix Formatting Inconsistencies from the Options pop‑up menu at the bottom of the view.

    Note: Before fixing all formatting inconsistencies, it’s a good idea to review formatting inconsistencies and ignore the ones you don’t want to change.

  • To find a drafting error in the view, type all or part of the drafting error you want to find in the Filter field at the bottom of the view.

In addition to the Drafting Errors view, you can use the Issues pop‑up menu at the bottom of the Contract Tools pane to see a list of potential problems in your document. To learn more about the Issues pop‑up menu, see The Issues Pop‑Up Menu.
