Work with phrase files

PhraseExpress can load phrase files and databases from multiple locations simultaneously and combines all phrase files in a combined tree structure.

You can create, load, save, unload, move, import, export and password-protect phrase files in PhraseExpress.

Most commands under the File menu refer to the currently highlighted phrase file node.

PhraseExpress supports a variety of different storage types for your phrases:


Local phrase file

Local Phrase File

Phrase files have the extension .pxp and contain the phrase folder structure, phrase contents, autotext and hotkey settings, program restrictions and access permissions.

The default name is phrases.pxp unless you saved your phrases under a new file name.

Multiple users can share the same phrase file. PhraseExpress will then synchronize and merge changes.

PhraseExpress Server file

PhraseExpress Server connection

Example: (IP address of the PhraseExpress Server)

The phrase file is hosted by the PhraseExpress Server.

SQL database

SQL Server connection

Example: Computername:d:\data\phrases.pexsql

PhraseExpress loads the phrases from Microsoft SQL servers.

Cloud file

Phrase file stored in a cloud storage sync folder

PhraseExpress automatically detects if the phrase file is in a folder synced by a popular cloud synchronization service.
