Location: The second tab located near the upper right of the Document Viewer.


To access the Document Viewer, click any link to a document in the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) from the Search, Browse or Facts & Issues pages. Under the DOC tab in the right-side panel of the Document Viewer, six sections are displayed: Document, Document History, Split Doc/Remove Pages, Translation, Redaction, and Annotation.

More information regarding each section in this tab is provided below.


Compare: The built-in compare feature will compare the text on two separate documents within a case and highlight the differences. This can be helpful when reviewing email chains or near duplicate documents. For more information see Document Comparison Tool

Description: Users can enter a short description or comment about the document.

Folder: Click on the hyperlink to change folder assignment.

Document History

The Document History tab contains a log of all of the changes to coding applied to documents in LEP and contains the date and time of the change (in Universal Time), the change that was made, and the user who made the change.

Split Document/Remove Pages

The PDF splitting function enables users to split a PDF document resulting in one or more new PDF documents made up of only the PDF pages that were extracted from the original PDF. The original document is not affected. The user that sets up the split instructions and the user that performs the splitting can be separate users. The Remove Pages function enables users to remove specific pages from a PDF document. A new PDF is created and the original PDF is not affected.

To set up a document split, expand the Split Doc/Remove Pages section and input the document breaks; i.e. 1-5, 6-10, etc. in the Instructions box. Click Add Task and wait for the highlighted confirmation message, Added Split Task. Click Save and close the Doc Viewer.

To execute splits, go to Management->Split PDFs from the main menu. See PDF Split/Remove for more information.


LEP allows users to upload documents that have been translated outside of LEP. Select UPLOAD MANUAL TRANSLATION to upload a PDF version of the translated document. This document will show up in the TRANSLATED tab in the Document Viewer and will also be part of the search index. For bulk language detection and auto translation using LEP, contact Lexbe Sales. See Translation for more information.


This option allows users to create a redacted version of the document without affecting or deleting the original (it will create a new redacted file). Users may also upload a PDF document with redactions done outside of LEP. See Redaction for more information.

**The Legacy Redaction Editor will be retired June 2021


The normalized PDF can be annotated or highlighted. The result will be shown in the Document Viewer's Annotation tab. This feature allows users to either annotate or highlight documents directly or manually upload documents previously annotated in another program (such as Adobe Acrobat). See Annotation for more information.

**The Legacy Redaction Editor will be retired June 2021


The Translation, Redaction, and Annotation features of the Doc Tab will be displayed in the Document Viewer as individual tabs, maintaining clean copies of the document under the PDF, Page, and Original tabs.
