Generally, only small extracts of documents are important. Keeping track of and managing every one of these is crucial as they contain the most critical evidence.
To manage extracts, MasterFile has a special Extract profile which appears in all MasterFile views. Critical evidence can always be found quickly, and is not forgotten among hundreds of "notes" or "annotations".
MasterFile views display extract profiles in several different ways:
- Under the main document from which the extract was taken, as shown below. Note the document profile row shown has a grey triangle next to it. This indicates it has extracts associated with it. Click the triangle to expand the document profile row to see its associated extracts. The small yellow torn page icon at the beginning of the row indicates the row is an extract and not a document profile.
- On a separate line as in the Documents by Issue/Topic view below.
- In an extract view, which only displays extract profiles as in the Extracts by Doc Type view below.
As for document and fact profiles, you open extract profiles by double clicking on their row. An example is shown below.
The "Segment type and number" is used to identify from where in its main document the extract was taken. Typical types of extracts include a page, paragraph or question, or a combination such as a page and line number, or time index for a video or audio segment. This example shows lines 20 through 25 on page 2.
