synonyms - like in MS Word

Idea Delivered Partially

Synonyms - like in MS Word - maybe with a right-click

 

That would come in handy during proof reading and rewording sentences for a better flow.

I use it in my second proofing (in the target document) all the time.

If that is already available, like spellcheck, please advise on how to implement it.

  • Hi  - have you looked at the Web lookup app? It can connect to synonym sites (as one of the many options), and you can configure your own web searches? Thanks, Daniel

  • Agree that the Web lookup app is very handy, but I think the best solution for quickly getting English synonyms for a selected word in Studio is this AMAZING AutoHotkey script:

    • info: jacksautohotkeyblog.wordpress.com/.../

    • script: www.computoredge.com/.../SynonymLookup.ahk

    I have no idea how it does it so fast, but in a second or two it

    (1) takes your selected word and runs a search for it at www.thesaurus.com,

    (2) scrapes the relevant synonyms/antonyms from the HTML page, and

    (3) presents them in a very clear/compact little dialogue!

    I will demonstrate it by selecting words on this page and triggering it via my keyboard shortcut...

    Pretty cool, huh?!
