You Use a Chromebook or a Virtual Workstation

Some computer setups don’t allow you to download applications to your machine. If your job requires you to use a Chromebook or a virtual workstation, you won’t be able to use ProWritingAid’s desktop add-ins. That means the web editor will be your best friend.

In addition to the web editor, you can use the Google Chrome extension for all other online applications.

You Have a Large Document to Check

If your document is 30,000 words or above, trying to run the entire piece through in a single shot is arduous. You’re better off chunking it into smaller pieces like chapters and running them separately through the web editor.

For example, when you’re ready to run your NaNoWriMo manuscript of 50,000+ words through ProWritingAid, you can upload or copy and paste single chapters. This makes the app run faster since it doesn’t have a large document to go through. And it makes it easier for you to analyze the suggestions. Big documents with multiple suggestions can be overwhelming.

You Use a Tablet or Phone to Write

If you use your tablet or smartphone to write, you can still access the online web editor to check your work. Rather than uploading your work from your smart device to a laptop or desktop and then running ProWritingAid, simply go to the web editor from your smart device.

You Use a Speech-to-Text App to Write

If you use a speech-to-text app like Dragon to write, you can simply copy and paste your work into the web editor to check. Skip the middle steps of converting your text to a Word document or text file to run through ProWritingAid.

You’re on a Limited Budget

ProWritingAid’s web editor is always free! Chris Banks, ProWritingAid’s creator, vows that the online editing tool will remain free for writers to use. As a writer himself, Chris understands the love/hate relationship with self-editing and devised ProWritingAid to make it easier and better.

Final Thoughts

As long as you have an internet connection, you always have access to ProWritingAid’s web editor. So you always have access to the most powerful editing tool available today, regardless of where, what, or how you write. It’s like having a writing coach and mentor in your pocket wherever you go.
