  • Grammarian PRO3 X: macOS Grammar/Spelling Service


    Using Grammarian PRO3 X with the macOS Grammar/Spelling Service Panel

    Grammarian PRO3 X integrates fully with the standard macOS Grammar/Spelling Service Panel and is available in most macOS applications from the Spelling and Grammar menu item in the Edit menu. The Grammarian PRO3 X service detects spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Spelling errors underline in RED, and grammar and punctuation errors underline in GREEN .

    Using Grammarian PRO3 X with the Grammar/Spelling Service Panel is identical to using Apple’s built-in spelling services. However, Grammarian PRO3 X has much more error catching capability and functionality. The Grammar/Spelling Service together with Grammarian's Integrated Inteactive Checking extend perfect control over editing.

    Note: Obviously, the Grammarian PRO3 spelling/grammar service works only in apps that support the macOS system spelling/grammar service. Almost all Mac apps support it. The apps that support the service will have the macOS Spelling and Grammar menu in the Edit menu:





    Setting up the Grammar/Spelling Service Panel with Grammarian PRO3 X

    On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences. Click Keyboard, then click Text. Do the following: Click the Spelling popup menu, then choose the English (Grammarian) service:

    Note: In some macOS versions (notably Catalina, macOS 10.15), we have found with our testing that the macOS spelling/grammar service settings will sometimes not take effect until a reboot is issued. If the system does not update the action for you, try this after the Grammarian PRO3 X installation. The settings should stick thereafter.



    ▪ Check spelling, grammar, and punctuation:



    ▪ Or right-click an underlined error to see the suggestions for an underlined word or phrase:






    Installing and Updating Grammarian PRO3 X


    ---- INSTALLING GRAMMARIAN PRO3 X


    Let’s install a new Grammarian PRO3 X. If you need help during the process, click on the help button (?) on the left side of the window.

    Grammarian PRO3 X install step 1

    1) From your downloaded GrammarianPRO3X.dmg, drag the Grammarian PRO3 X folder over to the Applications folder on your OS X drive. (Do not move the Grammarian app outside of the folder.)

    Grammarian PRO3 X install step 2

    2) Run the Grammarian application (identified with a checkmark icon) that is inside the Grammarian PRO3 X folder. Grammarian will ask you to install an Input menu. Click "OK". Grammarian will then start the install process.

    Then, Grammarian will tell you that it successfully installed the input Menu. You will see the following window if you are on:

    3) To finish the installation, click "OK" or "Quit". If Grammarian detects that the system should be reset, Grammarian will display "Log Out" and "Restart" buttons. Click one of these to restart the system.

    4) Now, look for a brown checkmark icon menu and a Pencil icon menu (Pencil menu) on the right side of the top menu bar. The Pencil Menu is Grammarian’s menu:

    You are ready to use Grammarian PRO3 X.


    Install Note #1: If you are moving from Grammarian PRO2 X to Grammarian PRO3 X, all you will need to do is to replace the Grammarian PRO2 X folder with the new Grammarian PRO3 X folder. Grammarian PRO3 X will upgrade all support files automatically when it runs. Most of the old settings will remain intact.

    Install Note #2: If you have problems with the installation, you can start over by running the Grammarian PRO3 Uninstaller in the Uninstaller-Grammarian PRO3 X folder. Select option #2 and click the Uninstall button. Then quit the Uninstaller. Make sure the Grammarian app is quit. Then run the Grammarian app again. The Grammarian app will next ask to install a new input menu.

    Setting up Grammarian's Integrated Interactive Checking, AutoCorrect, and AutoType


    Grammarian's Integrated Interactive Checking provides the automatic popup menu and spoken sounds that announce the error. Grammarian's Integrated functionality includes Grammar, Spelling, AutoCorrect, and AutoType.

    The settings for Integrated Interactive Checking are per application. Grammarian remembers the settings for each running app and automatically switches to the settings per context. The settings are accessible from the Pencil Menu/Interactive Checking menu as shown:
