conc_view_options

Sort preferences

By default, Concord will sort a new concordance by the word to the left (L1) then the word to the right (R1), but you can set this to different values if you like. For further details, see Sorting a Concordance.

 

Show collocate zero frequencies

This toggles whether 0 or a blank (the default) is shown if a collocate frequency is zero.

conc_view_no_zeroesor

conc_view_with_zeroes

Concordance View

You can choose different ways of seeing the data, and a whole set of choices as to what columns you want to display for each new concordance. You can re-instate any later if you wish by changing the Layout.

 

show full filename and path = sometimes you need to see the whole path but usually the filename alone will suffice.

cut redundant spaces = remove any double spaces

show sentence only = show the context only up to its left and right sentence boundaries. See zero characters if exporting as txt or xls.

tag string only = show only context within two tag_string_only tags

show raw numbers = show the raw data instead of percentages e.g. for sentence position
hide search-word = blank it out eg. to make a guess-the-word exercise

pad search-word with spaces = insert a space to left and right of the search-word so it stands out better

hide undefined tags = hide those not defined in your tag file

hide tag file tags = hide all tags including undefined ones

hide words = show only the tags

 

Some of the options are visible here:

 

conc_menu_with_padding

for example the sub-set visible shows an opportunity to blank out the search-word, to pad it with a space left & right, to shift the search-word left or right.
