Word Add-In from DocTools

​Are you editing large contracts or similar documents?

​Do you want to be able to extract insertions, deletions and comments in full context and including headings and subheadings?

Acronyms Master - add-in for generating lists of acronyms and abbreviations, incl. definitions

Acronyms Master - add-in that lets you generate list of acronyms and abbreviations incl. definitions - for Word documents

The functionality for extracting acronyms included in the DocTools ExtractData add-in finds and extracts acronyms consisting of 3 or more letters. It does not extract any definitions.

If you are working with large documents with many abbreviations and acronyms you should have a look at the Acronyms Master add-in. I was actually working on an advanced add-in for extracting acronyms including their definitions when I found Acronyms Master developed by Alexander Becker. After having tested Acronyms Master I decided to refer to that add-in instead - it is easy to use, affordable and includes all the functionality you need.
