RealLegal Binder excludes specific common words such as this and that from all projects. You can manually add common words to any project to exclude them. This is usually necessary in large projects where you have many words in the word index that do not add relevance to your case.
Use the following procedure to exclude a common word from the word index or search:
Find the common-words file for the project on your hard drive.
The name of the common-words file is commwrds.txt. It is stored with the directory for each project. For example, if you save a project called "My-binder" in the C:\Program Files\RealLegal Binder directory, the common-words file for the project is stored as C:\Program Files\RealLegal Binder\commwrds.txt.
From Windows, you can right-click on the Start button. Select Find and type commwrds.txt in the Named field, then click the Find Now button to find all common-words files associated with each project. The one you want will be in a directory that has the same name as your project. For example, if your project is named "My-binder" in the RealLegal Binder program files directory, the common-words file resides in C:\Program Files\RealLegal Binder\My-binder.dir.
When you find the common-words file for the project, open it in a text editor such as Notepad.
When the file is open in a text editor, scroll through the alphabetized listing until you find the logical spot to add the word. For example, you would add the words after which after the word afterwards.
Save the file as a text file, not as a Word or WordPerfect document, and exit the text editor.
In RealLegal Binder, select Tools à Advanced à Rebuild Word Index from the menu bar. RealLegal Binder rebuilds the word index to exclude the word you added.
