    2. New Grammarian PRO3 v3.1 Spelling Service update with fast checking speed. Grammarian's new v3.1 Spelling/Grammar Service now supports the highest level macOS NSSpellServer CheckString API. This produces lightning fast checking in the order of 100,000 times faster than the old v3.0 API. This is done by doing all checking in one call instead of calling to check each word, phrase, and sentence separately.

      Reference Note: The Grammarian Spelling/Grammar Service underlines spelling and grammar errors in the document like this example:

    3. New: Specialized Install Preference pane - Features spelling/grammar compatibility service installs. All apps that we tested work fine under the new v3.1 Grammarian PRO3 service version update except for Apple Mail and Apple Pages apps. We discovered that these two apps were never correctly updated to work with the NSSpellServer CheckString API. Therefore, spelling checking works but grammar checking does not work for these two apps. Rolling back to the previous slower service version 3.0 works fine.
