  • (2024-01-23) Tyson: ProWritingAid is a language software that provides exceptional accuracy and efficiency in writing. One of its standout features is the rephrase tool, which quickly suggests alternative sentence phrasing. While this feature is notably fast, it may encounter delays during use. However, these delays are infrequent and do not significantly affect the software's performance. One advantage of using ProWritingAid is that it requires no adjustments to work effectively. The software's default settings provide users with optimal performance with no additional customization. Subscribing to ProWritingAid can significantly enhance one's ability to articulate thoughts and ideas clearly and confidently. The software offers a range of tools that help users identify and correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. It provides insights into sentence structure, readability, and style to help users improve their writing skills. ProWritingAid helps users avoid embarrassing mistakes in their writing. For example, it can detect misplaced commas that may change the intended meaning of a sentence. The software provides elegant revisions that communicate the intended message while maintaining the writer's unique voice. Paying for the subscription is worth it, the first time it saves you from e-mailing your boss about your weekend adventure, with your uncle Jack and a horse. Instead, is provides an alternative in which you elegantly lend aid to your Uncle Jack, helping him down off a horse. Overall, ProWritingAid is a valuable tool for anyone seeking to improve their writing skills and succeed in their professional or academic endeavors. The software's comprehensive features and user-friendly interface make it an ideal choice for writers of all levels.
  • (2024-01-23) cjoston: Excellent help on my daily tasks.
  • (2024-01-23) Bindhumol Thomaskutty: A great tool
  • (2024-01-23) Diana Lloyd: The free version is great and really helps my writing. The annoying part is the popups and highlighting that occurs when the program won't show you the advance recommendations because you're using the free version. It's annoying and like the program is taunting me. I'll probably end up with a paid version.
  • (2024-01-22) Pablo Horacio David Hernández González: Muy buena y gratis. Aprovechen mientras dure.
  • (2024-01-21) Quentin Pieper: It's pretty good. Only thing I sorta don't like is that it keeps rephrasing it's rephrases which can get annoying sometimes because I want to have the perfect sentence but don't want to waste all my daily rephrases (of course this problem would be fixed if I paid for it but I'm not in a position to do that yet) and it can easily be ignored by pressing the ignore button.

  • (2023-10-04, v:2.4.21144) Maciej Chadała: Stopped working in Google Docs
    The extension was great, but recently the login does not work. I have the premium on prowritingaid website, however I can't login to the extension. Deleting cookies did not help. Can you take a look at it?
  • (2023-08-16, v:2.4.18615) Lisa Melichar: PWA not working
    I have premium. PWA is not working when I am in Google Chrome. Please help.
  • (2023-08-11, v:2.4.18120) Milena Wąsacz: Rephrasing
    Rephrasing doesn't work. It won't rephrase my text on any site. I'm getting, "Something went wrong. We are unable to generate a rephrasings for this text. Please, try a different piece of text."
  • (2023-07-27, v:2.4.15843) Walter Gómez: Annoying button position
    The ProWritingAid button is located in the same text box position as the Send button (e.g., in ChatGPT prompts). When the mouse cursor approaches that position, ProWritingAid expands from a small circle to a menu that hovers the button I wish to perform, sometimes it becomes an obstacle.
  • (2023-07-21, v:2.4.15843) Rico Madian: Snippets
    Hi there! Just wanna say that this extension works great. I just wanted to ask if you guys made a change to the snippets function? I use Hubspot at work and I've been using the snippet function daily for the past 7 months, but recently (in the past 3 days or so), whenever I'm trying to write emails (through hubspot) and choose to use a snippet, the font size is always 1 above the usual, which makes it annoying when I have to highlight the entire quote and change the font size down every time, especially when I'm working on 40+ emails on a busy day. (specific example: My company emails always use Verdana with a font size of 10, but when I add a snippet, regardless of where it is in the body of the email, it's a font size of 11). On the Snippets tab itself, I've always kept the font size as 'normal' with the 'serif' font, and it's been working great up until a few days ago. If there's a way for me to fix this issue, or there if isn't, please do let me know. Thanks in advance!
  • (2023-07-02, v:2.4.13685) Bonnie J Arthur: problems with PWA
    the only times the app works right is in email. I have windows 11 and need it to work in all other programs, particularly in Atticus. Even this page didn't work as expected. In trying to write an email I was rudly interupted by your request for a review. So knowing the trouble I have had since I bought it months ago, even though I was irritated by the interuption, I decided to do so. And what do you think? there was no place to write a review, only reviews that wrer already written. And. as you can see I deliberitly left mistakes to see if it worked here. It did not. Please refund my money until you get it working again. I was told by Dave Chessons that PWA was better than Grammerly but, as you can see, it is deffenitly not.
  • (2023-06-22, v:2.4.12481) Roy Rawlins: NO program

  • (2023-05-11, v:2.3.65535) Ilethas Viremar: Addon makes page elements lose focus
    In some pages, after things load in, the addon makes the focused element become unfocused. To give an example: 1. Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab 2. type "google.com" into the address bar and load the page 3. google.com loads in and search box gets automatically selected. Start typing quickly. You'll notice that after a brief delay, the search box gets deselected after the addon finished doing whatever it's doing – its own initialization routine, probably. 4. If you try the same with the addon turned off, you'll be able to continue typing without interruptions This is a very annoying problem for me, because I like to quickly search for things this way using only the keyboard. This issue forces me to reselect the search box with my mouse cursor. Is it possible to somehow remedy this issue? Apart from that, I really enjoy using this tool. More than Grammarly and Language Tool, in fact.
  • (2023-04-09, v:2.3.56387) Markus Horner: I cannot get my document back up on the screen so I can finish editing the grammar.

  • (2022-12-19, v:2.3.40000) Mark Dame: System load problems
    Since the last update to the Chrome plugin, Chrome has been sluggish and I've had a high system load. Disabling the ProWritingAid plugin fixes the load issues. This happens on both of my Macs, one running macOS 13.1, the other running macOS 10.14. Both are running Chrome 108.0.5359.124. I've verified the problem is with the ProWritingAid plugin: as soon as I enable the plugin, Chrome slows down to the point of being almost unusable. As soon as I disable the plugin, it responds normally. I did not notice any issues before the last update.

    Hello from beautiful Montana, USA I am editing an Ethical Will for our grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is a long document (220 pages) in a Google doc. I love the editing feature and it is catching things a beta editor missed. However, when I am editing on the last half of the manuscript, when using the editing program, it causes the entire document to freeze. Should I divide the document into two Google docs or is there another idea. I use a MAC and it has just been upgraded to be very, very fast. Thanks and I am available by phone or email. 406.549.9813 or [email protected] Judy Helm Wright--Author/Historian/IntuitiveWiseWoman
