Working with Facts in the Document View

Creating New Facts

Click on the 'New Fact' link to open the new Facts window; 
From this window, you will find the following fields;
Date Start: It can the date the selected document was produced or a specific date in the document itself.
Date End: It refers to the Timeline View generated under the Analysis>Facts & Issues tab.
Contested: If the fact is contested or not (optional).
Material: The 'Material' field allows you to indicate if a fact is material, not material, or undecided.
Page: It refers to current document page shown in the Document Viewer, this field is very helpful when you open a PDF Document with multiple pages. It will also show the page count to Lexbe Facts.
For example, we have opened in the Document Viewer a document with 10 pages. We also created a new fact including a 'Date Star: March 17, 2004', 'Title:Final Invoice for Billing' and in the 'Page field:4', referring to the page of the Invoice.

Title. Enter the substance of your fact in the Title field. Facts will be easier to work with if the Title refers to one fact, and not several facts or a compound fact.
Case Participants: Associate the litigants, deponents, witnesses, and other individuals and organizations to the 'New Fact'. 
Issues: The fact will be assign to 'Issues' categorized under the case.

After saving this new fact, it will also create a hot link to the page related to the particular fact (e.g. page 3) and also show the previous page count of the fact. Once you click on the hot link, the page related to the Fact will be opened in a new tab in your browser. Please note that this functionality is only available for PDF Documents and not Native Documents (Word, Excel, etc.)

When you are done making changes to the Facts in the required fields,  just click on 'Save' or 'Cancel' button.

Editing Facts by Date

When editing a Fact, you will not have the ability to specify a year or day only in the timeline because a date is estimated (mm/dd/yy).
