If your selected Templated does have Placeholders then before your Document can be generated the system will ask you to provide the values that should be inserted for each Placeholder.
A pop up will display listing all the Placeholders found in your Document, here you can enter each value.
The value that you enter for each Placeholder will be populated in its place, for example every location in the Template where [[PARTY A]] has been mentioned it will be replaced with the value you enter in the PARTY A field, in this case it will replace with the value of 'ABC Ltd'. This will happen throughout the Document where the Placeholder [[PARTY A]] is found.
Fig 4 - Placeholder value entry
If you do not enter a value then the Document will generate with the Placeholder value displayed within the square brackets i.e. [[PARTY A]].
Enter all your Placeholder values and press [Generate Document].
The Document will open in a new web browser, all Placeholders you have provided a value for will be replaced, the example below has them highlighted in yellow for information.

The Editor is provided for you to be able to make any final adjustments to your Document.
Whilst the Document is open you can add more Clauses if required. The panel to the left in the editor lists all the Clauses you have in your Library, they are listed by Clause name, and when clicked will open up to show all the Alternate Clauses.
Click on the Clause you require and it will populate in the document where your cursor is.
