You have a listing showing all the concordance lines in a window. You can scroll up and down and left or right with the mouse or with the cursor keys.

The Columns

These show the details for each entry: the entry number, the concordance line, set, tag, word-position (e.g. 1st word in the text is 1), paragraph and sentence position, source text file name, and how far into the file it comes (as a percentage). See below for an explanation of the purple blobs. The statistics are computed automatically based on the language settings.
