Severe alerts filter

Can the severe alert filter be set up to INCLUDE certain words and EXCLUDE other words at the same time? (Version 5.6.9.)

[Using each radio button on the Options tab seems to create the same list of words. My registry entry seems to list all of the words that have been selected - without indicating whether a word is to be included or excluded.]

The radio buttons at the top of the Severe Alert tab of the Weather Watcher Options window will tell you if the words/phrases are being excluded or included. Right now, you can only do one or the other.

How can I suppress ALL alerts?

As a kludge, I have set WW to exclude alerts with “AM” or “PM”, figuring that most alerts will have this text, but is there a universal command to just turn off alerts?

:-s none that I can see. Why would you want to do that?

There is no way to completely turn off the alerts. However, you can prevent them from popping up in your system tray by unchecking the “Show tray balloon when new severe alert is retrieved” checkbox in the “Tray Icon” tab of the Weather Watcher Options window.
