When the Main Window is open (pictured to the right), press the "Open Word List" button (or select File: Open: Open Word List from the menu bar). An open file sheet will appear. Select any text file and press the "Open Word List" button at the bottom of the sheet. Word Search Creator X will read the file and place each line into the word list as an individual item. If the text file has several paragraphs, each paragraph will be it's own item in the word list. For best results, make sure there is only one word/phrase per line in the text file.
