Sometimes when you're reviewing a document in CaseFleet, you'll find relevant text that runs from one page to another, or spans across more than two pages. There are two ways to cite text in these scenarios:

One way to create a citation across pages is to create additional citations for the same fact, using the "link to existing fact" feature in the document reviewer.

First, go to the first page where the text you want to cite begins and highlight it. In the form for creating the new fact, go ahead and enter all the details you want to appear for the fact, and click the orange "Save" button. This creates the fact and a citation linking that fact to the first portion of the relevant passage.

Next, visit the following page and highlight the remaining portion of the text you wanted to cite. When the fact form opens, choose the option to "Link to an Existing Fact" at the top of the form. A small pop-up will open displaying a search bar and the most recent fact you created as the top result.

After you've located the fact you created on the previous page, click on it. You'll see that the text you highlighted on the current page will be appended to the text of the fact. You can delete this text if you want, or leave it in place.

When you're finished, click Save. Back on the Facts tab, you'll see that the single fact created has two citations: one for the first page and another for the second page. Each citation will have the source text linked to it and each will allow you to open the the document at the exact location where the text is found.

Editing the Pin Cite

A alternative method for citing to text that spans multiple pages is to edit the pin cite when you create the fact on the first page. If the text you're citing runs from page 1 to page 2 of the document you're viewing, you'd simple change the default pin cite from "at 1" to "at 1-2".

In addition, if you want the source text on the citation to match text in the document that spans multiple pages, you can click in the grey "Source Text" field to add the additional text from the following page.

Both of the above methods allow you to create accurate citations to the evidence. Sometimes it's easier to edit the pin cite directly, but if you want the source text to be added automatically, it's often better to use the first method.
