Sanction® litigation presentation software provides litigators with a single resource to quickly assemble documents, exhibits, transcripts, questions, visuals and video that will be used to manage and present evidence throughout litigation, categorize them, and then create clear, polished and compelling presentation materials necessary for building a case. 

Sanction® 4 has added the following capabilities to provide you with more flexibility and control.

  • Drag and drop to import documents, images, media, transcripts and other items.
  • Copy video files to the case folder for reference.
  • Easily find source items for a presentation in your case folders.
  • Save time with new keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys), including Ctrl-J in presentation mode to advance presentation items from right to left like turning pages in a book.
  • Delete all annotations or exhibit stamps that were applied to an exhibit or to specific exhibit pages.
  • Create copies of exhibit pages. Save as many copies of an exhibit page as you want and apply a different set of annotations to each copy.
  • Set the default edge in the Tear Out tool. You can change the default border of tear outs to a jagged edge.
  • Set font options for transcripts. Configure a default font, font size and font color for the display of a transcript.
  • Easily rotate individual pages and entire documents.
  • Adjust your column layout. Adjust column width, move columns and sort by column for exhibits and media.
