Keyword Tools - Keyword Manager


The Keyword Manager tool can be used to filter keyword lists, by using search and replace functions. The keyword search and replace function works similarly to a search and replace function in a text editor application.

The Keyword Manager Tool is available from the Keyword Tools menu.
