Customized listings: In the Settings menu, you can select what you want to see and not see in each listing. For example, you can hide pictures, pronunciations, synonyms and opposites, or examples, depending on what you're using the program for and what helps enhance your understanding of the material.

You can also search for a particular word or jump to a section using the alphabet key on the right side of the screen.
