Note that this article covers the process of exporting only document image redactions for users attempting to migrate data to another system outside of Everlaw. If you need to export the images, text, and native files of your documents with an LFP format loadfile, you should either (a) use the export to zip function, which can automatically include an LFP export file when the “loadfiles” option is checked during configuration, or (b) create a new production, which will include an LFP loadfile in the “Data” folder if loadfiles are produced.
Everlaw allows document image redactions to be exported in the form of an LFP file. This loadfile format is primarily used to import data into the IPRO family of eDiscovery systems. This workflow is most appropriate for situations where you need to replicate drawn redactions on images that are hosted both in Everlaw and in an IPRO system without burning-in said redactions. The commands generated by the LFP export tool assume that the images which contain annotations have the same Bates number/Document ID in both Everlaw and the system of import. Because redactions are represented as a series of X-Y coordinates, document images must be identically sized to their corresponding Everlaw copies, and must not be rotated in the receiving system.
LFP redaction exports from Everlaw include the X-Y coordinates and dimensions of image redaction boxes, as well as the name of the user who applied the redaction, and the date on which the redaction was applied. Please note that redaction stamps and notes applied to redactions cannot be included in the LFP export file due to limitations of the LFP load file specification.
To use this tool, you must be an organization administrator logged into a project that is owned by your organization. To begin, first create a search which contains all documents you wish to export, and navigate to the search results table. Use the document-checkboxes on the left-hand side of the search results table to select or deselect search results for export. All checked search results will be exported; by default, all search results are checked and included. Once you have selected your documents for export, begin your export by clicking on the “Export” button, and then select “LFP.” You will receive a notification indicating that the LFP export has begun. When your LFP export completes, you will receive a notification with a download link for the LFP annotation file. If you need to access the link later, you can navigate to the “Batches and Exports” column of the project homepage; the export will be listed as an export card, and will allow you to download your LFP export file.
