When you click on MORE OPTIONS, additional helpful features appear, which include the following:
WORD COUNTS: Select this option if you would only prefer to view the number of possible words available from your selected dictionary. You will only see the total number and not the words.
SCORE EMPTY TILES: Select this option if you want the letter designated by a question mark to be included in the overall score of the word.
LOW RESOLUTION: Choose this option and results will not be formatted and displayed in plain text which will load much faster.
You may also click on a specified box to specify the exact number of letters a word must consist of based on your chosen criteria. Or, keep all the boxes checked at all times in order to show all possible words. You can also view a specified number of words by a grouped total of 10, 100, 500, 1000, or leave the choice selected to 'all-top results per group' to view all possible words.
