Finding To‑Dos

The To‑Dos view shows a variety of items that may be unfinished:

  • Placeholders such as [_], {_}, [•], {*}; also two or more underscores (_) or three or more spaces

  • Text enclosed in brackets ([ ]) or braces ({ })

  • Highlighted text (search for “highlight” in Word Help to learn more)

  • Comments, footnotes, and endnotes (search for “comments”, “footnotes”, and “endnotes” in Word Help to learn more)

Note: Contract Tools does not flag text like [intentionally omitted], [Reserved.], and so on as to-dos.

To show the To‑Dos view, click the To‑Dos button at the top of the Contract Tools pane.

Here are ways to use the To‑Dos view:
  • To show all to‑dos or a kind of to‑do, use the Show pop‑up menu at the top left of the view.

  • To go to a to‑do, click a to‑do in the view.

  • To copy a list of to‑dos to the clipboard, choose Copy To‑Dos from the Action pop‑up menu at the bottom of the view; see Copying and Pasting the Contents of Views to learn more.

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

Placeholders are highlighted when you select them; see Highlighting Content to learn more. You can also find placeholders using the Previous and Next buttons; see The Context Button; the Previous and Next Buttons to learn how.
