Most law offices today run on Microsoft Word. Yet, most law offices do not believe
they run as smoothly as possible on Microsoft Word thanks to its annoyances and
quirks. Plus most of us are not power users who have the time to tweak Word to work
the way we want it to work.
Snapdone's eponymous product is a suite of Word add-ons designed to make life easier
for lawyers and law office personnel who rely on Word. Snapdone adds a menu to Microsoft
Word with all of its features accessible in that menu. Snapdone focuses on automatic
numbering, contact management, document management, and forms.
Many hairs have turned gray in law firms thanks to Word's notoriously flaky numbering
styles. Snapnumbers provides paragraph numbering that won't mess up your formatting.
SnapTOC creates tables of contents based on your numbering system as you type or
even after you finish a document. Snapdone also provides you with easy control of

for each of the courts in which you practice. You can also assemble your own custom
forms using menu-driven form-generation tools. Snapdone offers flexible form fields
thanks to quick fill-ins, document merges, and its ability to import material from
Snapdone requires Microsoft Word 97, 2000, XP, 2003, or 2007, plus Outlook for the
Outlook-related features. Unlike many document management systems and shared contact
databases, it does not require an SQL server, a big cost savings, especially for
small firms. Snapdone can operate on any type of network -- even a simple peer-to-peer
home network. Snapdone sells for $595 for the first computer and $145 for each additional
