Check out the list of websites where you can occasionally experience an issue with the Grammarly browser extension.
At this time, Grammarly doesn’t initiate in Gmail if your interface is set to a language that uses a right-to-left script. To change your interface in Gmail to English, please follow these steps.
If that is not the case, please clear your browser’s cache as described in this article.
Note: Grammarly may not initialize in new emails if you’re opening a composition window in full-screen mode. Our development team has been made aware of the issue. Our investigation indicates that this occurs due to certain experiments carried out by Google.
At this time, Grammarly's extension doesn't check the subject line of emails being composed in Gmail.
As a workaround, we suggest that you copy the subject line and paste it into the body of the email for Grammarly to check it, and then copy the text back to the subject line.
If the issue occurs in the Chrome browser, please re-enable Grammarly in Google Docs by following the instructions below:
- If the Grammarly icon isn’t visible in your browser's toolbar, click the Extensions icon and pin Grammarly for Chrome:
- Click the G icon in the browser’s toolbar and switch off and then switch on Check for writing suggestions on Google Docs. The G icon should then appear in the lower-right corner of your document.
If the issue persists or you experience it in a different browser (Firefox, Edge, or Safari), please clear your browser’s cache as described in this article.
Please make sure there are no footnotes and tables in your document. Unfortunately, we’re experiencing some compatibility issues with Google Docs documents that contain footnotes and tables.
As a workaround, we recommend removing them and adding back after editing your document with Grammarly.
If your document doesn’t contain any footnotes or tables, however, and you don’t see Grammarly underlines, please clear your browser's cache as described in this article.
At this time, documents of thirty pages or more may slow down Grammarly’s performance. We are working on extending this limitation.
At this time, the plagiarism checker is not available in Google Docs. As a workaround, we suggest checking your text for plagiarism in the Grammarly Editor.
We are currently beta testing Grammarly for Chrome in Google Docs. This beta has been released to all Grammarly users in Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and the new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium.
Unfortunately, Grammarly doesn’t currently support integration with other Google Drive services, such as Google Slides or Google Sheets.
The Grammarly browser extension works with the status update box, comments, and chat on Facebook. However, the extension doesn’t check your writing in the notes field at this time.
To check your writing in Messages, go to https://www.facebook.com/messages and open any message. You should then see the Grammarly icon in the bottom right corner of a text field.
Our technical team is aware of this problem and is currently working on a solution.
In the meantime, you can turn off the Grammarly browser extension on Facebook by clicking the G icon on your browser’s toolbar and switching off Check for writing suggestions and Show definitions and synonyms via double clicks.
Grammarly works when you access WordPress from the /wp-admin page (https://<domain.com>/wp-admin/post.php). Also, if you switch to the classic editor, Grammarly should work there as well.
At this time, Grammarly does not work if you access WordPress from https://wordpress.com/post/<domain.com>. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have a quick fix, but please rest assured that our team has been made aware of the issue.
At this time, Grammarly does not initialize in HTML mode in the Microsoft Outlook Web App.
As a workaround, please click on More ( three dots) as shown in the screenshot below, and select Switch to plain text:
Alternatively, you can install Grammarly for Microsoft Office (available for Windows OS) to check emails in Microsoft Outlook.
Note: If the website where you experience an issue is not on the list, we encourage you to take advantage of the Grammarly Virtual Helper. Please open it by clicking the green button in the lower-right corner of the page and then entering the name of the website where you experience the problem.
