How do I keep words together when creating a word cloud?


I’d like to be able to keep certain words or phrases together so they appear together in a word cloud. For example ‘risk assessment’. This currently displays as two words in separate locations in the word cloud, but I’d like it to appear as a single statement ‘risk assessment’. How can I do this? Other word cloud software appears to use speech marks or the ~ symbol between words to keep them together.

    • I have the same issue. If anyone finds an answer, I’d love to know if there is a way to force words or phrases to stay together in the word cloud. I noticed it was smart enough to automatically exclude words like “and” which is cool.


    Hey Kim, I tried a few things and it appear the underscore works, but it not only keeps the words together, it will display as:  “risk_assessment” with the underscore.  I don’t have too many responses since this was just an employee survey, so this works for me.
