Edit v. Type-in v. Set mode

Most windows allow you to press keys either

to edit your data (edit mode), or
to get quickly to a place in a list (type-in mode).

Concordance windows use key presses also for setting categories for the data, or for blanking out the search word.


In type-in mode, your key-presses are supposed to help you get quickly to the list item you're interested in, e.g by typing theocr to get to (or near to) theocracy in a word list. If you've typed in 5 letters and a match is found, the search stops.


Changing mode is done by right-clicking on the word Set find_edit_set_right_click and choosing from the find_edit_set_menu menu which opens up.
