Grammarian PRO3 X Interactive Checking - AutoComplete

AutoComplete, or word completion, is a feature in which Grammarian predicts the rest of a word a user is typing. Grammarian's AutoComplete speeds up typing as it predicts the word the user intends to enter after only a few characters have been typed.

Grammarian PRO3 allows two popup window styles for selection:

Horizontal bar



Vertical popup



▪ AutoComplete can be turned on/off with a shortcut key or selection from the Pencil Menu/Interactive Checking.


▪ AutoComplete Interactive Checking menu settings:




▪ The AutoComplete window styles and functionality settings can be changed in Grammarian's Interactive Checking Preferences window:



* AutoComplete is available for macOS 10.8 and higher


Apple NLP Natural Language framework



Grammarian PRO3 now adds the Apple NLP Natural Language framework (Analyze natural language text and deduce its language-specific metadata such as part of speech, lexical class, lemma, script, and language). This adds to Grammarian's NLP options and the accuracy of NLP tagging. Although the Apple NLP works only on macOS 10.13 and up, Grammarian PRO3 will still work without this on lower systems. Grammarian is now incorporating this to train and deploy natural language models.



Apple NLP is available for macOS 10.13 and higher.



Document Check Window Sentence and Suggestions adjustable font size









New UTC Date/Time works from AutoType and Text Cleanup/Insert Date:







Save to Clipboard Menu Backup Function



While doing a clipboard grammar check, you can save all changes made back to the clipboard. This is a safeguard backup solution. You can paste the new clipboard backup into any document window at anytime. These changes stay on the clipboard until another copy or cut command is made. This is a current backup that can be pasted into any new document even during checking.








FREE limited grammar/spelling checking version (during and after full demo ends).











Various Fixes:

1. New white-on-dark menu icons for Big Sur/Monterey

3. Fixed: Readability syllables calculations.
4. Fixed: Spelling suggestions with lower editdistance for fewer suggestions. (Nancy Holmes)
5. Fixed: Update the Document Check Error View pane when all checking is completed. The Error View is updated before the Paste Changes Sheet Window displays in order to view the changes to be pasted.

7. Prefer and use Apple Pages RTFD clipboard format if supplied instead of RTF if no picture attachments exist.
8. Document Check Window Error View: Clicking on the Edit button now forms the edit sheet window, highlights, and scrolls to the error in the current sentence.
9. Fixed: Apple Pages RTFD graphics paste. Pasting RTFD in Pages would not include graphics.
10. Fixed: Document Check Window SplitView AutoSave for Monterey 12 beta.

Grammarian PRO3 X Interactive Checking Service - Panel


▪ Using Grammarian PRO3 X with the Grammar/Spelling Service Panel is basically the same as using Apple’s built-in spelling services. However, Grammarian PRO3 X has more error catching capability and functionality. Sample in TextEdit:




Grammarian PRO3's Integral Interactive Checking


▪ Grammarian has two interactive checking capabilities that can be used simultaneously. Grammarian's built-in integral Interactive Checking includes an automatic popup menu with voice alerts and per application preferences:

Grammarian's Integral Interactive Checking plus Grammarian's Grammar/Spelling Service simultaneously give:

1. Squiggly underlined document errors with contextual menu replacements (Grammarian PRO3 Service)
2. Automatic popup menu with voice alerts when an error is typed. (Grammarian PRO3 Integral-original method)


Use the Grammarian Pencil Menu or Grammarian Input Menu to access Grammarian PRO3's Integral Interactive Checking features. Grammarian’s Pencil menu will indicate a yellow color if interactive spell checking is on, a green color if interactive grammar checking is on, and a yellow-green color if both are on. A red colored Pencil Menu indicates that interactive checking is off. Grammarian remembers the interactive (check-as-you-type) settings for every running application. The ESC key or a mouse click cancels the Interactive Checking window. Also, canceling after typing a preset number of words is a preference setting:





- Document Checking -
