Where can I use Critique Report?

Currently, you’ll need to be using the ProWritingAid Online Editor or the Word Add-in for Windows to be able to access the Critique report. However, we are working on bringing the Critique Report to other ProWritingAid integrations in the future.

How do I access the Online Editor to use the Critique Report in ProWritingAid?

To access the Online Editor, login to your account on our website and click on “Use App” from our homepage.

Once you’ve opened the Online Editor, you can open a new document to write in or to copy your writing into, or upload a document directly from your computer. We recommend writing at least 500 words to ensure you get a meaningful amount of feedback on your writing.

When you’re ready to receive a critique on your document, you can follow the steps below to start using the Critique report.

How do I get the Critique Report to work in the Online Editor?

Critique Report appears in the Web Editor along the reports toolbar that appears at the top of your document.

Simply click on the Critique button to run the report on your document. It will run on the first 4000 words of your document and bring up a window showing you all the results of the analysis. Remember to write at least 500 words to ensure you get a meaningful amount of feedback on your writing.

If you want to run the report on up to 4000 words of a longer document, you can highlight the text you want to analyse using your cursor, and then click on Critique to see your results for that section of text.

The report you see works a lot like our Summary report, which means you can click through all the headings on the left to see specific feedback about your document.

For example, if you want to spend some time working on your character development, you can click on the Characters heading to see what the Critique report says about how you’ve written your characters.

Do I have to upload my documents to use the Critique Report?

No, you can type your document directly into the Online Editor, or you can copy and paste into a blank document. We recommend making sure you have at least 500 words in your document to really make the most of the Critique Report feedback.

If you have any questions about the Critique Report that we haven’t already answered, please get in touch with us at hello@prowritingaid.com, and we’ll be happy to help you!
