Use template tags to define what words should be skipped and the minimum word length required when choosing a random word from the currect draft.

Select a random word from the current draft and create a temporary workspace showing all flagged drafts that contain the same word. Skips words listed in the comma-separated “exclusions” template tag and words with fewer characters than “minimum”. Meant for triaging flagged drafts—edit the “ws.loadFolder” and “ws.setFlaggedSort” lines to repurpose.
