Here are some useful hints and tips for Clicker 6 customers!
Did you know you can customize the Predictor?
The Predictor in Clicker 6 is highly versatile and can be customized to offer tailored word prediction.
To do this, open the Options menu, click User Preferences and switch to the Predictor tab. You can choose the level of prediction, keyboard shortcuts, and whether to use SoundsLike (phonetic) prediction.
If you click Custom Level, you have fine control over every aspect. You can choose:
- how many predictions to show in the list
- the font style and color
- the size of the word database
- to filter out shorter words
- to predict words from open Clicker Sets
- to predict the next word
By default, the Predictor follows the text cursor. You can make it stationary by dragging it elsewhere. To have it move again, drag it back onto the text cursor.
Did you know you can see what spellings were corrected in a Document?
To analyze the Document, open the Document menu and click Document Analysis.
The Statistics tab shows data about words, characters and sentences in the Document.
The Spelling Corrections tab shows an alphabetical list of misspelt words that were corrected by the Spellchecker. You can see where the misspelling occurred by clicking the + sign next to the word.
Did you know you can open and save Microsoft Word Documents in Clicker 6?
Microsoft Word Documents are usually configured to open with Microsoft Word when clicked. However, they can also be opened in Clicker 6.
To do this, open the Document menu, click Open Document, browse to your Microsoft Word document, select it and click Open. Please note: some features of Microsoft Word are not supported in Clicker (such as tables) and will therefore not appear.
You can also save a Clicker Document as a Microsoft Word Document.
To do this, open the Document menu, click Save Document As, click the Save as type: box and choose Microsoft Word Document (*.docx).
To always save as a Microsoft Word Document, open the Options menu and click User Preferences. On the Document tab, click the Default filetype: box and choose Microsoft Word Document.
