How to do it

The Layout menu option (Ctrl + L) offers a tab headed Extra Set column.

 

extra_set_column

 

Here you can click to add a column (and delete any extra set columns created).

 

The point of it

is to aid in filtering and sorting your data. In this example, the word pig has been classified in the original set column according to whether it is Fictional, a Commodity, an Idiomatic usage, or Abuse. In the Set 2 column a further classification has been used to signal Positive or Negative contexts. It has been sorted on the Set 2 column.

 

concord_extra_set_column

Now it is possible to delete the additional Set column if desired.

 

delete_set_2

Using the new Set column

Click in the new column to select it, then enter your set column data as desired.
