Hi one and all,

I've been tinkering with a test version of Lexicool's Lingo 4.0 and find it fairly useful although its function is largely covered by Wordfast.

I was just wondering if people have any working experience with the program, in particular with regard to speed of searches when a lot of glossaries and/or large glossaries are imported.
The test version only allows 200 entries with each glossary so I can't assess the search speed of some of my larger glossaries. And speed is of course the essence when it comes to searches.
Just out of interest - does anyone know if there is a limit as to the number of entries a glossary can have with this program?

Thanks for any information you can put my way.
