Opening of both object and png files is now possible by drag and drop in the Shape editor.

A new column has been added to the input table in the main window to allow words to be excluded from the word search creation.

Three new sort criteria have been added.
1) Words with clues can be sorted to the top of the table
2) Excluded words can be sorted to the top of the table
3) Excluded words can be sorted to the bottom of the table

The font set in the preferences for the word column in the input table now also applies to the font of the length column in the table.
