How do I preserve text formatting?

If you copy and paste your formatted text into the Grammarly Editor, only the following formatting will be preserved: 

  • Bold, italic, underlined text
  • Numbered lists and bullet points
  • H1 and H2 headers
  • Links

To preserve the full original formatting of your document, please use the Upload (Import) button to upload it into the Grammarly Editor, and then the Download (Export) button to download your text after editing. Although your document will appear in plain text in the Grammarly Editor, your original formatting will be preserved in the version you download after editing.

The Grammarly Editor supports the following file types: MS Word (.doc, .docx), OpenOffice (.odt), .txt, and .rtf

If you work on a Windows computer, you can also download Grammarly for Microsoft Office and use Grammarly without leaving your Word document or Outlook email.
