NAVIGATION: LT finds errors, but there’s no easy way to reach the errors. Either this is broken or it’s a requested feature. As an editor, I need to navigate large documents to find the spelling/grammar mistake in the document. It’s desired to click or link to something so I can reach the error.
SPELLING SUGGESTIONS: Although there are spelling suggestions, I must manually type them into the original Gdoc. I thought double clicking would automatically overwrite my typo, but nothing happens.
Once the analysis is done, you can click on any error message and the error in the text is selected. So it is very easy to reach the error. Isn’t it working for you? If your layout is complex (you have tables,etc.), it’s possible that it doesn’t work.
There is a limit for large documents, because of a server restriction. If your text is longer than 15000 characters, you need to select previously some part of the text.
Again, it should be very easy. If LanguageTool has a suggestion, just clicking on the suggestion (yellow buttons) should replace the error with the suggestion. Perhaps in documents with a complex layout it doesn’t work. Could you share some document with this problem?
You can change the LT server in the options and use your own server. But it has to be an online server, not a local server, because a local server cannot be accessed from the Google servers where the add-on is executed.
To enable using a local LT server, the add-on should be re-written and some server-side code moved to client side.
