Contracts Made Easy

Turner gives you powerful tools for analyzing a contract in detail. You almost always have more than one question about a contract, so Turner makes it easy to find many things at once. Use tokens to find amounts of money, dates and times, uses of defined terms, and more. Mix tokens and text to find almost anything you can think of.

Use tokens and text together to find a variety of phrases.

Find and replace many words and phrases at once.

Making Connections

With Turner, making connections is as natural as looking. Insert a cross-reference by choosing an item from a simple list. Or, just click the item you want to cross-reference – a whole section, a minor clause, or anything in between.

Or a list item.

And then click to add a cross-reference.

Exploring Connections

Turner makes it easy to explore connections within a contract. See how parts of a contract relate to others in an organized list. Navigate by clicking items that interest you – just like you browse the web. As you explore, the Back and Forward buttons keep track of where you’ve been, so you never lose your train of thought.

Use the Related Items Navigator to see how one part of a contract relates to others.

Click uses of defined terms to go to where they’re defined.

Click cross-references to go to what they reference.


Because contracts have connections, changing one thing usually means changing others. Turner makes this quick and painless. Change a list item, a provision, or your whole contract, and all of your cross-references update automatically – so you can focus entirely on your content.

When you change a provision, cross-references to it change.

When you change every provision, all cross-references change.

Defined Terms

Most contracts have defined terms: important words and phrases with custom definitions. Turner makes working with defined terms simple. Create defined terms with just a click. Easily list defined terms and definitions together. As you type, Turner suggests defined terms that you might want to use – so you never have to worry about forgetting anything.

List defined terms and definitions together.


Turner automatically proofreads your contract for common problems: words and phrases that look like defined terms but aren’t, broken cross-references, and more. Proofreading typically takes just a few seconds, and you can simply keep working while Turner proofreads. Easily ignore drafting errors that don’t bother you. Use comments to keep track of items that you want to review later, and easily share your comments with others.

Sort drafting errors in the Navigator with one click.

Use comments to flag items you want to review later.


Turner gives you the tools you need to format your entire contract as a whole – so it’s easy to make your work look consistent and professional. With just a few clicks, you can position every paragraph, number every provision, format every defined term, and much more.




Turner can open Microsoft Word (DOCX) files, PDFs, RTF files, plain text, and most contracts filed on the SEC’s EDGAR system. When you open these files, Turner finds defined terms, links up cross-references, and more – so you’re up and running in almost no time at all. Turner also makes it easy to share contracts as Microsoft Word files, PDFs, and more.

Engineered for OS X

Core Data. Grand Central Dispatch. The Cocoa text system. These are OS X technologies, and Turner uses all of them (and more) to give you an experience that’s possible only on Mac. Everything you do is fast and fluid. Your work looks pristine on a Retina display. If you use a Mac now, Turner will feel familiar from the moment you launch it. If you use a PC, you’ll find that making the switch is easier than you think.
