Phrase Libraries

The phrases that make up your legal descriptions are stored in what we call a "phrase library". You can have up to 10 individually customized sets of phrases. And you can switch between any one of them at any time with just two mouse clicks.


Phrases are customized in the phrase library editor. The editor is easy to use with all of your phrase text and formatting options clearly presented.
