DocTools ExtractChanges Pro is a must have tool for any front end transactional lawyer whose day-to-day life is ruled by track changes, blacklines and comments from their clients and counterparties. The program provides a systematic and high quality review of any document to create a standardized template at the click of one button - leaving a fee earner to push aside document compilation to focus on the key issues to be negotiated and formulate strategies to their clients.

Adam, Construction Lawyer

Discovering DocTools CrossReferenceManager was like a childhood Christmas - magical!

CrossReferenceManager has significantly simplified how we automate cross-references in Word and has improved the overall quality of our customer focused documentation.

David Buckley, Senior Manager Technical Publications, GS1

I have been using DocTools CrossReferenceManager for several months and have found it to be extremely useful.

I am also extremely pleased and impressed by Lene Fredborg's support. When I ran into issues using the program, Lene Fredborg helped me solve the issues quickly and professionally. I could not ask for more from any software provider.

John D. Purdy, Of Counsel, KAUFMAN DOLOWICH VOLUCK, LLP, KDVLAW.COM

DocTools CrossReferenceManager is a terrific add-in that adds functionality to Microsoft’s own cross-referencing function, and makes it much easier to assign cross-references. A great tool for all power Word users.

Custom cross-reference texts – This is COOL!!!

​I love the filter function!

​I love how after you've inserted a cross-reference, all your settings – AND the last cross-reference you chose – display when you go to insert a new one (this is super handy when you’re assigning numbered cross-references for bibliographic citations)!

Rhonda Bracey, owner and Managing Director of CyberText Consulting Pty Ltd

This Microsoft Word plugin, DocTools ExtractChanges Pro, is a lifesaver for anyone who is working with contracts based on a template. It will automatically do a batch-comparison of your final word documents (tip: we 'Star' the final documents in google drive, so we can quickly list them and download and extract these documents into a folder). On top of that, not only do you get a folder with the comparison results, the tool will give you a change report, only listing the changes, which is great if you are analyzing the typical changes to your template and if you are managing your contracts and need to have overview. It works from within your Microsoft Word, so the learning curve is almost non-existent. Finally, it is the only solution in the market that I know of that produces this result (other than expensive contract review software solutions). Highly recommended!

Pieter van der Hoeven, Co-founder & CEO, Clocktimizer

I wish to thank you for having created the DocTools CrossReferenceManager tool. It is really a big help for who has to manage complex documents.

You could ask why I am silent for long times; the reason is simple. I am the general manager of a company that produces complex offers in public tenders. Normally the offers are prepared by a dedicated team but, from time to time, there is an extremely important (for us) tender and I want to care it personally. Our documents are really complex, with tons of data, and nothing is better than CrossReferenceManager to keep the things under control; without it, you leave MS-Word the opportunity to run wild… and waste your time in so many ways!

Another point that I appreciate, is the capability to quickly add beautiful links, not only with the paragraphs numbers, but also with the page and to the title. Without CrossReferenceManager it would require ages, with CrossReferenceManager you do it in just one click.

Ing. Giovanni Becattini, Amministratore Delegato/Managing Director, AEP Ticketing Solutions, Italy 

I purchased DocTools CrossReferenceManager and DocTools DocPropertyManager. These are awesome tools! They resolve some particular pain points and make me more efficient.

Jessica Davis, KL&A Proposal Manager

I use almost no add-ins as often trying to remember them all is more work than it is worth. But your tool, DocTools CrossReferenceManager, is a winner and I have put the icon on the quick launch tool bar and use it almost every day as I write my reports.

Paul Maconochie, GeoTek Solutions Pty Ltd

I bought CrossReferenceManager a few months ago and it's been a godsend as I prepare my PhD thesis for submission in July.

CrossReferenceManager is making a substantial contribution to my thesis by allowing me to produce detailed referencing that allows my supervisors (and later examiners) to follow my arguments better.

John Gray, Research Student at University of Lincoln, England

I write lengthy and detailed software specifications, and I'm very picky about defining terms and using them consistently throughout a specification document. My latest specification is one for a Japanese customer where we have re-named some terms, and my Japanese colleague has the challenge of translating my lengthy document. But with the DocPropertyManager tool, I'm able to make very good use of Word's Custom Property feature. I can easily redefine a custom property, and all references throughout the document are immediately updated. I can also translate any term to Japanese in a single step. Without the DocTools DocPropertyManager program, I would have given up on Words Fields. (Using the built-in MS Word utility is frustrating at best, and nearly unusable at worst!)

The software was easy to try (full-featured free trial) and the price was very worth it when I bought the licensed copy. I've since received excellent and courteous technical support (resolved in a few hours on a weekend, no less). Needless to say, I'm a very happy customer. Thanks!

Stephen Green, Principal Solution Analyst, Engineering Intent Corporation

II've spent the weekend working with CrossReferenceManager. Wow! I've been a systems programmer for over 50 years and it's rare to find software that's as nicely designed as CrossReferenceManager.... I'll be licensing a copy for sure.”

​Andy Johnson-Laird, President, Johnson-Laird Inc., Forensic Unmanned Aircraft Analyst

OK, seriously , DocTools DocPropertyManager is Great!

I'm very pleased to work with DocTools. The way Lene Fredborg answers (and personally), the quickness of her answers, and the accuracy of her answers are unusually excellent.

Only with Lene, I feel to get in contact with well-educated and extremely patient and attentive partner.

This differs a lot compared to actual websites that even do not answer, or are impossible to reach or from which the favorite answer (trough an appalling “noreply” email address …) is more or less equal to “we cannot / will not answer” or making you turning crazy because they are not careful to be consistent between their response and the (poor) possibilities offered by their site.

Once again, I recommend all people interested in DocTools to become immediately a customer …
