ExampleSet2AttributeWeights in RapidMiner 5?

Dear RapidMiner experts,

I have a question of how to make word vector representations of two text datasets consistent in text processing (the same feature set). I have two text datasets. After text processing in RapidMiner, the first text dataset generate 1000 features/word vector. The second text dataset may have 2000 unique words, but I want to use the same feature set of 1000 words from the first one. I can do this in RapidMiner 4.6. However, I have trouble to do the same thing in RapidMiner 5. Could you give me some advice of how to do this in RapidMiner 5?

One way to make word vector representations of two text datasets consistent is to use attribute weights. In RapidMiner 4.6 I can do it, but I do not know how to do it in RapidMiner 5.

In RapidMiner 4.6, I can use ExampleSet2AttributeWeights to process a dataset and assign 1 as weight for all attributes and then write to an attribute weight file. Later I can load the weight file via AttributeWeightsLoader to filter the new text dataset. This approach is used in RapidMiner 4.6 \01_Input\02_TextFromParameterListAndTermList.xml

But the problem is that in RapidMiner 5, I cannot locate ExampleSet2AttributeWeights, so I cannot generate attribute weights (all 1s for words appearing in the first text dataset) from an example set.

Could anyone help how to do this in RapidMiner 5?
