Global and local definition lists

In traditional documents, you can insert a definition list as a separate clause by automatically generating it using the document toolbar.

However, such functionality is often not enough:

  • In binders, you may run into the situation of having certain defined terms in one document and other defined terms in another.
  • In some jurisdictions, it is customary to have “local” definition lists containing only those terms that are present in a specific clause.

ClauseBase allows this kind of flexibility: for each definition list, you can define the scope and interactions with any other definitions lists present in the document/binder. To tweak these options, you should simply select the definition list, and visit the Advanced menu at the right side of your screen.

These eight (!) different options should allow you sufficient flexibility to meet all your definition needs!
