Wordman's Acroliter

Posted on December 27, 2013 at 2:20 PM

Wordman's Acroliter, an add-in for Microsoft® Word 2007/2010/2013, combines two of Wordman's most popular add-ins, Wordman's Acrogen and Wordman's Hiliter, into one tool.

Wordman's Acrogen is a tool for creating abbreviation lists for proposals rapidly and accurately. Wordman's Acrogen can be used on a single, open document (the "Active Document") or on a folder containing multiple Word documents.

Wordman's Hiliter is a tool for easily highlighting multiple words and phrases ("keywords") in a proposal document, based on a custom list that you can share throughout your proposal team. This add-in can help to ensure compliance with official proposal terms, and to avoid accidental previous client names from being included when reusing content.

Wordman's Acroliter is now available in Wordman's Store for 15% less than purchasing Wordman's Acrogen and Wordman's Hiliter separately!

No more Google Merchant

Dear Friends of Wordman

I'm sorry to have to remove Google Merchant as a method of payment in Wordman's Store, due to Google shutting down this service. You can still use PayPal to purchase Wordman's Add-ins, or contact me if you need to pay by company check.
