When starting a new search report, there a number of options you can turn off and on to help you. They all modify your list of search terms after extracting them from a list, spreadsheet, or PDF.
Consolidate Duplicate Terms
If you have a very large list of terms, or many terms highlighted in a PDF, sometimes it can be hard to remember that you’ve already entered or highlighted a particular term. If this option is turned on, multiple occurrences of a word will be consolidated into one entry in your search report. If the term has page numbers associated with it, they will appear attached to the single entry like this:
This option is most useful when extracting terms from a PDF. Often words will be broken along lines, leaving a term you’d like to search formatted like this: “erup-tive.”
Naturally Pronounceology will search for the hyphenated term which will not actually be recognized by the dictionaries.
While turning this option on may catch a few words that are actually hyphenated and remove the hyphen, these will most likely be few and far between.
This option will take multi-word terms and automatically split them into single terms, searching each one. Use this with caution with the nature of your list in mind, as it could create many more entries. The second sub-option: “Split term, place first term in Notes, and search only 2nd term” is designed mainly for proper names, where you do not really need to search the first name in “David Brobagaccionchiee,” for example.
