Word list area
: Paste a list of words (words, word parts, phrases, etc) or type them into this field. Such a list can be created in Microsoft Excel or any simple text processor like Notepad. Items may be prepared in two formats:
Search item + line break (to separate from next item).
- Search item + TAB character + special description (usually containing a short instruction on what to do when the item is found) + line break. The description will be displayed on the form (see item 2 below) when the search item is found so you can take the appropriate action (replace the word with the word indicated in the instruction, etc)
tank-->replace with 'vessel'
border-->replace with 'boundary'
Note: '-->' above indicates a TAB character
For a case-sensitive search
, add `[c]` to the beginning of the search string, for example:
(this will find only words that begin with or are equal to this capitalized letter combination).
For a wildcard search
, add `[w]` to the beginning of the search string, for example:
(this will find all decimals with "."
decimal point, e.g. 0.2, 123.45, etc.)
Note: all wildcard searches are case-sensitive!
