Two tools that help you stop over-using words in your documents

Ian Paul | July 8, 2015
I go through phases with my writing. Sometimes I feel like every second sentence needs to start with "but," then I start using "however," which becomes "nevertheless," and on and on it goes until the bad habit stops.

On a side note, only install add-in files from developers you trust as doing so allows third-party code to run on your documents.

Once Word is up and running, you should see a new tab at the top of the Word menu that says ADD-INS--similar to what you see above.

Click that tab and you'll see menu item for word usage. Select it and a pop-up appears with a bunch of options that are all straightforward tweaks you can make to the frequency report.

Once you're ready to go, click OK and your word frequency report will appear as a new document--unless you changed that setting.

That's about all there is to setting up the add-in. Enjoy your word frequency counting!
