Can I exclude text in quotes from checking?

You can adjust your document settings to stop Grammarly from checking text that appears inside quotation marks. 

At this time, this setting is available only in the Grammarly Editor and Grammarly’s desktop app

To prevent Grammarly from offering suggestions on quoted text, click the Grammarly icon in the upper right corner, and then click Editor Settings. In the window that opens next, toggle the switch next to Don’t check text inside quotes


When you activate this setting, Grammarly will not make spelling or grammar suggestions for quoted text. However, this text will still be checked for plagiarism if you activate the plagiarism checker.
