On the left you have a list of units. If you started a new collection, this list might be empty except for one unit that was created by default for you.

If you cannot see the list of units, you might have to enable it in the ViewUnits check box.

The check boxes in front of the unit name show which units are currently included in your practice. The number next to it is the number of words in the unit.

New Unit

Select where this unit belongs to, for example the collection My Spanish Lessons.

You can select New Unit item using one of the following ways:

  • GUI icon: select the New Unit icon in the toolbar.

  • Menu item: select UnitNew Unit

  • Context menu: click with the right mouse button on the collection and select New Unit item.

Collection: My Spanish Lessons

Please make sure to select the right point in the tree structure of units before selecting New Unit icon in the toolbar. In our case, wanting a Sub-Unit of Collection: My Spanish Lessons it is exactly that one that needs to be selected before going ahead with New Unit.

Moving, Renaming and Deleting Units

To change the name of a unit, double click it, or click with the right mouse button on the unit and choose Rename Unit. You can also delete it this way (but you'll lose its contents also then).

If you don't like the arrangement of units, you can move a unit with the mouse. You can drag it onto another unit, then it will become a child of that unit.

Splitting a Unit

If your units grow too big, you can choose to split them up to make learning easier in small units. 20 words for a unit is probably a good size. Click with the right mouse button on a unit, or use the UnitSplit Unit into Smaller Units menu item and the unit will be separated into child units. You can choose to randomize the words that are put into the new units before assigning them, or to keep them in order.

What is Shown in the Table

Parley shows always the words of the unit that you have currently selected. You can enable to see the words in sub-units contained in this unit also. Use the UnitShow Entries from Child Units check box to enable this. That way, you can browse all words by selecting the document unit at the very top.
