These functions may or may not be visible in each Tool depending on the capacity of the Tool or the current window of data -- the one whose caption bar is highlighted.
allows access to advanced features
opens a new window showing Associates.
joins (lemmatises) automatically.
re-sizes each line of a display so that each one shows as much data as it should. Most windows have lines of a fixed size but some, e.g. in Viewer, allow you to adjust row heights. This adjusts line heights according to the current highlighted column of data.
closes a window of data
computes concordance clusters.
shows collocates using concordance data or recalculates collocates, e.g. after you've deleted concordance lines.
calculates a new column of data based on calculator functions and/or existing data.
computes totals, min, max, mean, standard deviation for each column of numerical data.
within KeyWords, WordList, starts Concord and concordances the highlighted word(s) using the original source text(s).
allows you to copy your data to a variety of different places (the printer, a text file, the clipboard, etc.).
allows editing of a list or searches for a word (type-in search).
quits a Tool.
edit or type-in mode
alternates between edit and type-in mode.
opens a new window showing the file names from which the current data derived. If necessary you can edit them.
finds any text files which contain all the words you've marked.
increases the height of all rows to a fixed size. See shrink below.
opens WordSmith Help (this file) with context-sensitive help.
joins one entry to another e.g. sentences in Viewer, words in WordList (lemmatisation).
This allows you to alter many settings for the layout: the colour of each column, whether to hide a column of data, typefaces and column widths.
computes links between words in a key-words plot.
marks an entry for joining or finding files.
checks each item in the list against ones from a text file of lemmatised forms and joins any that match.
matches up the entries in the current list against ones in a "match list file" or template, marking any found with (~).
computes mutual information or similar scores in a WordList index list.
gets you started in the various Tools, e.g. to make a concordance, a word list, or a key words list.
gives you a chance to choose a set of saved results.
computes collocation patterns.
play media (Ctrl+M)
plays a media file.
opens a new window showing a Concord dispersion plot or KeyWords plot.
print preview (F3)
previews your window data for printing (Ctrl+P); can print to file, which is equivalent to "save as text".
undoes an undo.
re-draws the screen (in Viewer re-reads your text file).
removes any duplicate concordance lines.
search & replace, e.g. to replace drive or folder data, when editing file-names where the source texts have been moved.
re-sorts lists (e.g. in frequency as opposed to alphabetical order) in Concord, KeyWords or WordList.
shows/hides vertical divisions in any list; text divisions in a KeyWords plot. Click ruler in a menu to turn on or off or change the number of ruler divisions for a plot.
save (also Ctrl+F2)
saves your data using existing file-name; if it's a new file asks for file-name first.
saves after asking you for a file-name.
save as text
saves as a .txt file: plain text.
searches within a list.
reduces the height of all rows to a smaller fixed height. See grow above.
shows detailed statistics.
toggles on & off the "status bar" (at the bottom of a window, shows comments and the status of what has been done).
opens a new window showing summary statistics, e.g. proportion of lemmas to word-types.
toggles on & off a toolbar with the same buttons on it as the ones you chose when you customised popup menus.
undoes last operation.
unjoins any entries that have been joined, e.g. lemmatised entries.
view source text
shows the source text and highlights any words currently selected in the list.
, Microsoft Excel or Word™
save formatted data for Excel or Word.
within KeyWords, makes a word list using the current data.
zaps any deleted entries.
