How to deactivate certain suggestions in the Grammarly Editor

Note: This feature is available only with Grammarly Premium, Grammarly Business, and Grammarly@edu.

You can deactivate certain types of suggestions in the Grammarly Editor. This feature is available for a limited number of suggestions, including:

  • Passive voice
  • Oxford commas
  • Repeated and overused words
  • Word choice and sentence variety
  • Filler words or multiple clauses
  • Hard-to-read sentences
  • Personal pronouns
  • Sentences ending in prepositions 

When you see a suggestion that’s unhelpful, click the trash can icon to dismiss it. If it’s a suggestion that can be turned off, you’ll see an option that says Turn off suggestions like this. Click it to deactivate the suggestion.

After you deactivate a suggestion, you can turn it back on by clicking the Deactivated Suggestions icon in the right-side panel.

Note: If you deactivate a certain type of suggestion in the Grammarly Editor, it will also be deactivated in Grammarly for Microsoft Office. To learn more about this feature in Grammarly for Microsoft Office, check this article
