Associate Extensions will teach Windows to use Concord, WordList, KeyWords etc. to open the relevant files made by WordSmith.


Toolbar & Status bar

Each Tool has a status bar at the bottom and a toolbar with buttons at the top. By default the toolbar is hidden to reduce screen clutter.



If you set printing to monochrome, your printer will use italics or bold type for any columns using other than the current "plain text" colour. Otherwise it will print in colour on a colour printer, or in shades of grey if the printer can do grey shading. You can also change the units, adjust orientation (portrait PORTRAIT or landscape LANDSCAP) and margins and default header and footer. You can also setup your printer in Print Preview.



You can set Oxford WordSmith Tools to confirm a print job in the defaults (wordsmith.ini) file. If this contains the line confirm printing=YES then every time you print you'll be told which lines of the current concordance or list were printed.,
