WordSmith Tools Manual


save favourites WSImage_326_save_24

Used to save your current selection of texts. Useful if it's complex, e.g. involving several different folders. Essential if you've attached a date to your text files.

Saves a list of text files whose status is either unknown or known to meet your requirements when selecting files by their contents, ignoring any which do not.


get favourites WSImage_561_open_24

Used to read a previously-saved selection from disk.


By default the file name will be the name of the tool you're choosing texts for plus recent_chosen_text_files.dat, in your main WordSmith folder.


You may use a plain text file for loading a set of choices you have edited using Notepad, but note that each file needed must be fully specified: wildcards are not used and a full drive:\folder path is needed. You may date the text file if you like by appending to the file-name a <tab> character followed by the date (any date after 1000BC) in the format yyyy/mm/dd e.g.

c:\text\socrates.txt        -399/07/01

c:\text\hamlet.txt        1600/07/01

c:\text\second world war.txt        1943/05/22
