Some tips on using Mobysaurus Thesaurus
« on: December 04, 2006, 06:31 AM »
Shortcut Keys

F1 - Find Synonyms
F2 - Find Synonymous Headwords
F3 - Suggest Headwords
F4 - Find Online
F5 - History and Favorites

ESC - Clear search box

Shift + Enter - Launch and look up word in WordWeb

Minimize/Close To Tray

To place the icon in the tray area, go to "Option", check:

1. Minimize to Tray    and/or
2. Close to Tray

(One or both, depends on your preference)

Work With Text Editors like WordPad or Microsoft Word

If you intend to frequently invoke this thesaurus to look up words in a text editor, try to enable the above-mentioned "minimized to tray", "close to tray" options. This should be more convenient for you and also it saves time.

To look up a word in Microsoft Word, etc., simply select the word by double-clicking on it, and press Mobysaurus Hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + A, by default).

The hotkey won't be effective if you don't have the program running.

hey.  Any way to get the program to close with Alt+F4?  I don't know why it doesn't close the program, but I do know that it takes me to wikipedia with the word having been searched.  Why would the program not respond to the native function of these keys to close a program?  can I customize my version to function in what I perceive to be a regular fashion?
