No secret - it is all the files I have tipped together with a priority
rank attached, then sorted according to kanji/kana/rank and the lower-ranked
duplicates dropped. The priorities are all in the docs page. wrote:

No hope in hell of working. Things like RoboWord sit there trapping
Windows API calls. It needs real trojan and virus-prone Windows facilities 
to do that.

Can you make it loop looking for something to turn up? That was a nice feature
of the one that Todd & I started on. No keystrokes at all; just highlight the
text. ISTR it sits in a 1000ms sleep loop doing a "catch" on the cut buffer.
