Using the extension
You’ll get quick corrections in-line, meaning you can hover and in one click accept a replacement suggestion.
Each card gives the error and a suggested fix. To replace your text with the correction, click on the green highlighted replacement. The correction will be applied to the body of your text. You can also delete the suggestion or add the term to your term bank directly from the card.
Q: I have the extension but I don’t see any underlines.
If you are signed in to the Chrome extension, have enabled suggestions on the page, are editing a text area, and still don’t see the Writer score or any underlined suggestions, try doing a hard refresh of your web page.
- Windows users: Hold down Ctrl and then press F5 on your keyboard
- Mac users: Hold down Cmd and Shift and then press R on your keyboard
Q: My score is still not 100 but I don’t have any underlines.
