      • - you can use a “screen capture”

  • 13. Creating & Changing To Save, Print, Share
  • 14. Creating & Changing To change the way it looks } Respin - randomly change Lock - don’t allow changes Menu - manually change options
  • 15. Creating & Changing To use a shape instead of a “cloud”
  • 16. Creating & Changing Advanced options, not used often
  • 17. 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)
  • 18. 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)
