WordSmith Tools Manual

In WordSmith you need plain text files, such as you get if you save a Word .doc as Plain Text (.txt). The text format should be ASCII or ANSI or Unicode (UTF16). HTML and XML are OK too.

 

Any Word .doc or .docx files will look crossed out and should not be used: convert them to .txt first.

Text files within .zip files can be used; they will be coloured red in the Files available display but WordSmith can read them and get the texts you select within them.

Check the format is OK

In the file-choose window you can test the format of the texts you've chosen with the Test File Format (unicode) button.
