Downers Grove, IL – January 13, 2016 – Microsystems, the leading provider of document authoring, editing, formatting, proofreading, and metadata scrubbing software serving the legal and life sciences industries, today announced the release of DocXtools Companion.

DocXtools Companion analyzes document content to identify and correct numbering errors, and detect erroneous cross references. The software gives the editor the option to manually review mismatched cross references or have them corrected automatically. The end result is automated, sequential numbering and cross references.

DocXtools Companion also addresses Tables of Contents issues in a simple one-button click. The Table of Contents button identifies where numbered paragraphs should be and makes updates. The software’s Table of Contents feature recreates the levels in a Table of Contents, and automates them. If no Table of Contents exists, then the software lets you select a location and creates a Table of Contents using first and second heading levels.

“Building on the success of our popular DocXtools product, Microsystems has created DocXtools Companion to address and correct problems with cross references and numbering, and table of contents,” explained Jason Maeder, Product Manager at Microsystems.  “Leveraging 20 years of document expertise, we have developed this enhanced software platform with the customer in mind.  DocXtools Companion answers our clients’ requests for a user-friendly product with one-click functionality that requires no training. By responding to the needs of our customers we are also empowering a larger user base to benefit from the solution,” he added.
