Glossary Viewer

The Glossary Viewer lets you view and maintain glossaries. 

With the Glossary Menu you can view:

You can also view the Current Glossary by clicking it in the Glossary List or by using the Shift+Alt+= keyboard shortcut.

On the right you can see the Viewer List, with all glossary entries. Below the Viewer List a Preview window shows a preview of the current entry: it can be toggled on or off using F6 and it can also be resized using the horizontal slider.

On the left, under the Includes button, is the Includes List, which contains the names of all included glossaries. The Includes button is used to open the Includes dialog. As you can see in the example, some glossary entries appear on a rose-colored background. This indicates entries from included glossaries. When a glossary entry is highlighted in the Viewer, the glossary containing the entry is highlighted in rose in the Includes List. In addition, the full path name for the glossary appears on the right in the status bar.

On the left side at the top, we have the standard Open, Close, and Help buttons. Below that we have a Search button and a search editor where you enter search terms. Likewise, under the Includes list, we have a Group button and a group editor, used for searching two-letter phrase groups.

At the bottom you can see the Add, Delete, and Edit buttons which enable you to add, delete and edit glossary entries. The Move button is used to change the order of Phrase Entries inside a two-letter Phrase Group.

The status bar indicates the combined number of entries contained in the glossary and included glossaries, the number of words, phrases, and clauses. Clauses are additional phrases created by Instant Text. A large number of clauses ensures rich continuations.

Any button can be activated by a shortcut, using the Alt key followed by its first letter. For a complete list of shortcuts, see the Viewer Keyboard Shortcuts.
