You can set Author-it Xtend to exclude noise words from searches. Noise words are the common or filler words used in sentences, for example, the, to, is, and, and or.
Use the Reuse Search window to configure your own noise words list.
Author-it Xtend calculates how many times each word is used in the library and stores the results in the Common Words list. The list includes a Use Count column, so you can see how many times a word appears in the library.
