Reading Error Cards for Grammar

When you open a document in Grammarly, the “general” review is conducted immediately. Errors are shown in a series of “cards” on the screen.* The following image shows the Grammarly screen with the error cards visible:

Expand the card by locating the down arrow next to the error in order to read about the error and how to fix it.

Ignore errors by clicking the "trash bin" icon on an error card.

*Librarian Tip: Grammarly will not fix the error for you. You can edit your document on the Grammarly screen, or return to your original file and make corrections.
