Using the Reference Bar
|Contents | Search | Support | Jarte Home|
The Reference Bar provides quick access to online references. Access to the Internet is required in order to use the Reference Bar. All reference content is displayed in the default web browser. The exceptions are if you have the WordWeb dictionary or Visual Thesaurus programs installed on your computer, as described further below, then Internet access is not necessary for the Dictionary and Thesaurus features.
Lookup Target - Enter the word to be looked up in the provided field. Note the Reference Bar buttons lookup the word in the provided field if the field has focus. If the document has focus then the reference buttons will lookup whatever word the document's text cursor is currently positioned on.
Dictionary - Looks up the target word on an online dictionary & thesaurus web site. If the WordWeb dictionary & thesaurus PC program is installed on the computer then Jarte will lookup the word in the WordWeb program instead.
Thesaurus - If option Use Visual Thesaurus in the More Links menu is turned on then Jarte will look up the word using the the Visual Thesaurus PC program if it is installed. Otherwise, Jarte will look up the word using the online version of Visual Thesaurus. Visual Thesaurus online is a subscription service, but it can be used for a limited number of free lookups. Jarte works with Visual Thesaurus online both during the free demo period and as a paid subscription.
If option Use Visual Thesaurus is turned off then Jarte will lookup the word in the WordWeb dictionary & thesaurus PC program if it is installed on the computer. Otherwise, Jarte will look up the word on an online dictionary & thesaurus web site.
Encyclopedia - Looks up the target word at the Wikipedia web site.
More Links - Displays a popup menu which provides access to an English grammar web site, a quotations web site, a word-of-the-day web site, and Google. In addition, Jarte Plus includes Edit Links and Edit Buttons menu selections that allow you to redefine the Reference Bar buttons and to add additional links to the More Links menu.
If you prefer that Jarte remember whether the Reference Bar is displayed between editing sessions then see advanced setting Remember Find and Ref Bars.
Advanced setting Privacy Guard can be used to prevent Jarte from remembering the list of recent reference lookups from one editing session to the next.
