This plugin creates a summary of all the words from a selected text field within an IDEA database. The user is given the option to set the minimum number of characters to be considered a word. This plugin produces several different outputs. If the web browser “Chrome” is installed, the plugin generates a word cloud of various words. The plugin also creates a chart within IDEA of the top 20 words along with a file listing all the words that were found within the selected field. You can also use this plugin to look for unusual words within a text field. (added 3-Feb-2020)
