Altering the Natural Search Noise Word List

The noise word list is a simple text file containing all of the words you want to be ignored when a Help file is searched. Each individual noise word appears on a separate line in the file. The initial list is in alphabetical order but there is no requirement that they be added that way.

The default versions of the configuration and noise word list files are installed in the Natural Search default directory (C:\Program Files\ComponentOne\Natural Search\Default\smdefault.cfg and smdefault.snz). Open the smdefault.snz text file to add or remove specific noise words. If adding words, remember that each word must appear on a separate line.
