Create, upload, and download your documents

When using the Grammarly Editor, you can create a document by clicking the New button. If you want to check an existing document on your computer, click Upload:


Another option for importing existing text is to create a blank document, then paste in text from your clipboard.

Note: If you use this option, some of your document’s original formatting may be lost. Visit this page to find out more about preserving your original formatting. 

When you finish editing, you can download your document by clicking the Menu icon (shown as three horizontal lines) in the upper-left corner and selecting Download


If you started by uploading a document file, Grammarly will export your document in the same file format that you began with. For example, if you started by uploading a .doc file, your Grammarly document will be available to download as a .doc file.

Exception: If you upload a .txt file, it will be exported as a .docx file.
