Using Document Tools
Use Document Tools to validate your work faster than ever before using Shepard’s Citations Service from within the
context of your document in Microsoft Word or Microsoft Word Online. Shepard’s Signal indicators appear with citations
within your document, and cited cases appear side by side with your document, saving time and eliminating source
printing. Exclusively available from LexisNexis, Shepard’s offers the full spectrum of analysis and the potential to identify
splits of authority.
• Set and Check Cite Format: efficiently match the format requirements you specify and save time as you ensure
style compliance.
• Check Quotes: quickly validate against source documents.
• Prepare Table of Authorities: organize your authorities with fast, flexible options.
Dramatically reduce your time spent reviewing style compliance, and be confident in the accuracy of your work through
real-time comparison against Lexis Advance content, including the most up-to-date format requirements from citation
style manuals.
Use Set Cite Format to set style preferences to selected citation style manuals, including The Bluebook®, California,
Florida and New York. Also, automatically receive updates to existing style manual content and new style manuals as
they become available.
Use Check Cite Format and get clear status icons to help you see at a glance which citations are already correct, may
need correcting or are not recognized.
As you proceed, short citations (including id. citations) are corrected at the same time as their parent citations. You can
clearly view what the tool sees as the parent citation and easily change the parent of the short or id. citation, if needed.
Check Quotes: Quickly validate against source documents.
Quickly verify the accuracy and relevance of all quotes against the context of original source documents. For each quotation,
you can click a radio button to show your text (in your draft document), mark changes to the source text or edit your text.
Prepare Table of Authorities: Create or update your TOA in seconds.
• Step through each listed authority along with the pages where each appears. You can delete just one or multiple
instances of the authority from the table, if desired. If you delete anything in your TOA, it remains in your document.
• You can add or edit headings, move citations and add or delete TOA citations. From the document on the left, you
can add citations to the TOA on the right (e.g., law review citations).
• Specify layout, sorting, content and format preferences. For example, you can center your TOA, move entries within
a category and customize your Table based on your firm’s style.
