Realtime lets you quickly work through documents.

After these errors are corrected Once these errors are fixed, you can move on to individual reports for more thorough editing. They let you examine your sentence structures, repeated words and more. To determine the areas where you must focus for the greatest outcomes in the shortest period of time, you can run the Summary Report.

How to Utilize It

ProWritingAid can be downloaded in a variety of formats. You can make use of their Web Editor to edit documents in your browser. Also the browser extensions permit quick grammar fixes for websites like Twitter and Facebook. Word addins for Windows, Mac and Windows let you modify Word documents right from the start.

Today, we’ll focus on their Desktop App. This application is perfect to work with Ulysses documents. Registration is necessary to access the tool. There are a variety of ways Ulysses documents may be utilized and ProWritingAid can be used. Ulysses writers can make use of the free online Web Editor, or download the desktop application. Premium licenses are required to edit more than 500 words at a time or to utilize the desktop application.

The desktop app can read 8 file types (Markdown included). Markdown File can be used to export Ulysses text. ProWritingAid will then edit the text, and you can then import it to Ulysses for further processing. It’s fast and effective however it doesn’t permit you to keep the images or attachments that you use for writing objectives. After some testing with the app, I discovered that the following workflow is effective for me:

Open ProWritingAid.

Open your Ulysses sheet and choose the text section. Then, select the Edit menu’s “Copy as Markdown” command.

Paste into ProWritingAid.

Then review each report individually and edit within ProWritingAid.

Once you are done, select the edited text, and then copy it.

Copy the text from the previous version onto your Ulysses page, using the “Paste from Markdown option in the Edit menu.
