The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) allows the user to download and print multiple documents selected (filter or manual selection) to a briefcase and from there, print locally. As a cross-platform web application, it is not possible to print multiple page documents directly from the browser, a local batch print utility makes this possible.

How to Print Multiple Documents

Select documents to print in the Browse or Search search pages. The user may print all or selected document and also apply a filter by providing more specific information (titles, date, stamp, etc.). Choose Export->Export to Briefcase and create a Briefcase.  To print the documents from this Briefcase, go to Case>Download Briefcase and download the briefcase to a local desktop.  Unzip it and print locally.

Using a Local Print Manager

Multiple documents may be printed from Windows Explorer by selecting, right click, print, but the order may be random.  To print in a particular order and with a large number of documents, it is best practice to use a local print utility.  Many "batch print utilities" are available.  Some of our clients recommend  A-PDF Batch Print  A-PDF Batch Print (for PC only and will print Tiffs and other document types as well as PDFs)

Printing in Date Order

Sometimes the user may wish to download and print a large number of documents in date order to be able to prepare for a deposition.  To do that the user will need to have the document titles in date order and use a print manager (batch print utility). Documents with titles in a format like this: 2011-11-15 Memo to Board.pdf will print in date order.  Documents with Bates numbers in date order will also print in date order.

Support for single page TIFFs

If the user has a case loaded with single-paged TIFFs and load files, then the single-page TIFFs will download to briefcase as well.  A batch print manager (see above) will usually be needed to print for single-paged TIFFs because of the volume of pages at a time printing.
