  • By selecting Tools -> Show Related Words from the menubar

Which ever method you choose, KWord opens the KThesaurus dialog box.

The word you selected from your document appears in the combo box labeled Search for: .

There are three columns of alternate words: Synonyms , More General words (hypernyms), More Specific Words (hyponyms).

If you find an appropriate alternate word, simply click on the word in the list, and this word will now be listed in the text box labeled Replace With: .
