An Incredible Program! - I have owned WordSearch since February of 2002, when I was on OS9. I recently retired from teaching after 31 years, and I can safely tell you that I still LOVE using WordSearch with my outside organizations. When I was a Fine Arts Chair all that time, the teachers would ask me to do their word searches because mine looked so professional. I hunted all over looking for a good one. After several false starts, I found this one. I'm glad I did because it's extremely flexible, and easy to use. But don't let it fool you, it's got lots of power under the "hood".
