You can now send a generated word cloud image to the Bjorn's Annotate web app for easy annotations.

Try it! Export image and in the export UX there will be a new option Annotate with the Bjorn's Annotate app. This will open the image in the Annotate app and you can for example add callouts, arrows and text.

Version 3.15 supports templates. A template specifies the look of a cloud but no data. You an apply a template when you create a new project or later. You can save any project as a template for future use. Templates are stored on your local hard drive with the .wordcloudt extension. This short YT video shows how to apply a template as well as how to create a new template.

Note that the version for Google add-ons do not support templates since Google is not supporting the modern File API for any add-ons.

Word Clouds now supports background images to add a little touch to the clouds. By default the background images are displayed in gray and low opacity to not clutter the cloud (this can of course be easily changed). This version also enables AI generated background images, as seen in this short YouTube video.


Below is a sample animated cloud, animating on frequency, each frame shows words with the same frequency.

This cloud animates each word, from low to high frequency.
