      Things we can change
    • Printing and saving
      • The only bad part of Wordle.
      • There is a direct Print option
      • No Save option
        • - you can use a “screen capture”
        • -Mac: Command+Shift+4
        • -PC: “print screen” button, then paste
    • Tagxedo Very similar to Wordle Big difference: create different shapes
    • Getting started Two ways to create
    • Creating & Changing To add text
    • Creating & Changing To Save, Print, Share
    • Creating & Changing To change the way it looks } Respin - randomly change Lock - don’t allow changes Menu - manually change options
    • Creating & Changing To use a shape instead of a “cloud”
    • Creating & Changing Advanced options, not used often
    • Advanced Options Vocabulary Frequency Modifier - allows you to increase the number of times a word is used without retyping the word Normalize Frequency - Will make a list of unrepeated words look like a normal word cloud Spread - how different do you want the biggest and smallest words to be? (preset at 40)
    • Code tricks MDMC :50 - will automatically increase the frequency of “MDMC” to 50 San ~ Diego - will keep the words San and Diesgo together when forming the cloud. Word :#ff0000 - you can make any single word any color you want. (Requires knowledge of color hex codes)
    • Printing/Saving/Sharing Much easier than Wordle, although some options are complicated.
    • Examples
