Using the Word Add-In across Multiple Screens

Microsoft Word 2016 and some versions of 2019 use Internet Explorer 11 to display the ThoughtRiver application via the Word Add-In. It is possible that you may encounter performance issues as this browser is no longer supported by Microsoft.

For best performance and full feature support, we suggest you install Edge browser, use Office 365 or Word Online when using the ThoughtRiver Word Add-In.


If you work across multiple screens you can use Microsoft native functionality to expand your contract review workspace.

Follow these easy steps to pop out the ThoughtRiver Word Add-in as a separate window.

  1. Drag and drop the pane using the header bar. The ThoughtRiver panel will undock from Microsoft Word as a new window.
  2. Resize and rearrange the two windows to your liking. These can be arranged across screens!

When you're finished you may close the undocked panel. 

To reopen the panel in the docked position, click the "Launch ThoughtRiver" button in the ribbon menu.
