The subcorpus building screen can be reached in two ways:
From the dashboard
On the corpus dashboard, click MANAGE CORPUS, then SUBCORPORA, then CREATE SUBCORPUS
From the advanced tab of any tool
On the advanced tab of any tool (with the exception of the thesaurus), click the plus sign add next to the subcorpus selector.
- type a name for your new subcorpus
- use the text type selectors to choose the required text types
- click CREATE SUBCORPUS
Creating a subcorpus may take a few seconds while statistics for the subcorpus are calculated. Watch for a notification. When finished, it will appear in the subcorpus selector on advanced tabs of all tools that support subcorpora.
Tips for using the text type selectors
- you can select as many text types from as many selectors as you wish
- selecting all values in a selector is the same as selecting none
- type a few letters to search the text types
- the selector can be expanded full-screen for practicality
