Managing expressions

Expressions of the selected dictionary

We have integrated several expressions here:

List of expressions corresponding to the selected dictionary.
By means of the check box, you can deactivate an equivalent as required for a particular generation.
Deactivating an expression does not entail the deactivation of its equivalents.
An expression may not contain more than eight elements (one element = a letter, an apostrophe or a comma).

IMPORTANT FOR THE IMPORT:
Import format (UTF-8 required):
One tabulated line per set of expression/equivalents.
1st element in the line: expression, subsequent elements in the line: equivalents

ONLY THE ABOVE FORMAT IS SUPPORTED.

The context menu for the expression selected contains two additional commands for which there is no button:

Switch

The command enables you to transform all the equivalents of an expression into expressions in their own right. For example, you have
company -> firm, corporation
after switching the expression « company », you have three sets of expressions/equivalents:
company -> firm, corporation
firm -> corporation, company
corporation-> company, firm
Each of these allows equivalents to be treated as expressions.

Collect

This command collects all the potential equivalents for the expression selected.
In practice, the collection engine searches other dictionaries and tries to find terms which correspond to the expression.
