Hi ,

I did try to import . It started importing ... but never ends.
Wakan hangs while importing. Did anyone face the same issue ?
How did you overcome it ? Any workarounds ?!

Regards,
Prem.

Prem--

The key here is that you do not have to take any action from within WaKan for it to use the example sentences-- WaKan recognizes automatically whether the file examples_j.pkg is present in the directory containing the wakan program (wakan.exe) and uses it if it is there.

The Import command is ONLY for vocabulary files, which are usually files with extension .csv (stands for "comma-separated values" although WaKan vocabulary files usually use semicolons as delimiters). (There may still be some older vocabulary files around from early versions of WaKan with extension .wkl; the program still recognizes these as vocabulary files just for backwards compatibility.)

It is also important to note that you can also view example sentences for a word on the Dictionary screen-- this is in fact how I usually use it-- and not just on the Vocabulary screen as Petlab has described above.

Look up a word in the dictionary, by any method, and select one of the results from the result grid by clicking on it (it will become highlighted). The second button below the result grid is labeled Examples. If this is toggled on (darker shade of grey), then example sentences containing the selected word will appear one at a time in a text box below the two buttons. Use the three buttons to the lower right of this text box (RND for random, left arrow, and right arrow) to navigate among the various example sentences containing the word.
