Do you use the free Grammarly to edit your hubs?
When I first started using Grammarly I had some issues with the program but any problems I had seem to be a thing of the past. I recommend trying it out especially if you feel your spelling and grammar could be improved.
Thanks for this Sally. I did install Grammarly and tried editing my hubs with it but found it extremely difficult and took me almost twice the time to write a hub so deleted it. I keep getting offers to rejoin. Maybe it has been improved since then, or do you have any tips for using it more efficiently?
I love seeing the little green symbol which tells you that you have got it right. if I see the little red symbol I know I have to review a comment or a section of my hub. I only use the free version and I think it is terrific, definitely worth it.
I have never heard of this. I will have to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!
Actually..I have not! Don't remember if I saw that in the learning center section. I'll have to see if you can go back and use it on a published feature hub or not. Thank you so much for the heads up on that.
You won't find it in the Learning Centre, it is a free download. You can use it for most things, emails, hubs etc., It just appears when you write text. it makes a world of difference.
You are a life saver. Thank you so much for sharing that. Sounds like I can spend more time actually writing than looking over text until my eyeballs bulge out of my head!
Happy to help, if we want to keep this site going we need to produce work which is as good as it gets.
I don't think it much matters which program is used but think it important to use an editing program of some kind even when commenting on a hub. This one just comes up automatically as you type.
I did happen to download the free version last night. Like Sally said, It comes up almost as you are typeing. I'm going to have to see about getting a mobile version of this for smartphone.
I don't. Although I'm a professional editor, I appreciate a little extra help because one person can't catch it all. I take MSWord very seriously when it indicates something may be wrong, however sometimes my writing is just fine and the checker hasn't caught up with contemporary writing. One LOL though, we legal editors have to turn off the syntax checkers because according to it, everything is wrong.
I find that I am improving with a little help from my 'friend'. Together we are a lot better than I was on my own. I love that Grammarly even helps when I am writing a comment on Hubpages. I appreciate your stopping by to comment. Thank you.

Is it possible to use such a feature? If Google can locate bad grammar on websites, what about a site wide grammar checker or filter for us? Is that possible?
