Is there any way to export a word list or copy it into a spreadsheet? I use Mental Case to study flashcards and would prefer to import the words into that program.

Welcome to the L4 Mac Forum

Read all this post prior to attempting to create your spreadsheet. Seems it worked, then it did not. However, Rich Text Format (rtf) seems to work consistently.

Yes. After creating your word list, just type Cmd-P. The print dialog will look something like this

Select "Save as file" Spreadsheet and save you list. It will save as a .xml file which will open in Excel with a double-click, or Numbers with slightly more effort

OOPS: Worked the first time, but when I tried to open it again to get a screen shot for you, received a "could not open" dialog.

However, you can save the file as rtf and open in MS Word

You are most welcome. Just wish I could understand why the spreadsheet option worked once, but then never again.
