Comparison between version 3 and version 5

Access to the Settings Database

If you cannot find the settings you need for a particular website, you can try looking in the Settings Database. Version 5 provides direct access to the Settings Database from the Share menu on the Search Window.

Localize As You Go

IntelliWebSearch Version 5 is probably the first program in the world users can localize into their own language as they use it. Just press F7 when one of the windows is open and start localizing. Alternatively you can export/import all the interface messages in XLIFF format and localize them in your favourite localization/translation environment tool. Volunteer localizers may also receive complimentary licences in exchange for making their localized interface files available to other users (write for details).

List Mode

List Mode works on lists of items separated by commas, semicolons or line breaks (by default).  You may define your own list separators on the Program Settings Window.

  1. Search Window

How to use List Mode on the Search Window

First of all the Search Window opens with the first item on its own.
If you then launch a search from the window, the result page appears and the Search Window reappears immediately after, this time with the second item on its own.
After launching the next search, the Search Window appears yet again, this time with the third item, etc.

Note that if you did not intend to use List Mode, you can toggle back to String Mode using the button on the Search Window. This must be done immediately when the first word in the list appears in the search input box.

  1. Direct Shortcut

How to use List Mode with a direct shortcut

You will get one search result tab/window in your browser for each item in the list.

Note that if you want to use List Mode with a Direct Shortcut key, you must first enable it among the settings for the search associated with that particular shortcut.

List Mode on a Text File

How to use List Mode on a text file

If, for example, you configure a search with an on-line machine translation service and associate it with a direct shortcut key, you can select a text file (simple or tagged) in any folder, press the shortcut key and watch your browser open a new tab/window for each paragraph in the file with its machine translated version: a sort of pre-machine-translate without a CAT tool. When a file is selected, List Mode is always automatically enabled.
