“Position” is one of the properties of clause files. It can be used to suggest the appropriate positioning of a clause to users of the clause.
An example of good use of preferred positioning of a clause is a clause containing a signature block, which should in most cases be positioned at the very end of a document.
How ‘position’ works
A clause can be assigned an (approximate) preferred position within a document. Five types of preferred positions are possible:
- at the very beginning of a document
- towards the beginning
- somewhere in the middel
- towards the end
- at the very end
When a preferred position has been assigned to a clause, a user wanting to insert that clause in his/her document will be able to choose “automatic position” instead of the standard options for inserting clauses.
“Automatic position” will be suggested when inserting a clause with a preferred position.
