InstaText within Word and Overleaf

InstaText Word Add-in is available.

You can choose between the InstaText Editor for direct editing within Word or use the built-in Track Changes feature to review and apply improvements.

InstaText Editor inside Microsoft Word

Select the text in the document that you want to improve and click on the Improve Text button. Now you can use the InstaText Editor to revise suggestions and then insert the improved text.

If you prefer so, you can also use InstaText to create suggestions within the document immediately. You can then use Word’s built-in Track Changes features to revise the improvements.

To choose between InstaText Editor and built-in Track Changes, use the drop down menu at the top of the InstaText side panel. The panel allows you to adjust the language settings and manage your personal dictionary to retain word combinations that belong to your professional language or personal style.

All latest versions of Microsoft Word are supported, both on Windows and Mac. You can use InstaText in the online (free) version of Word, too.

“Of course, there’s Grammarly, a writing assistant that checks the spelling, grammar, punctuation, and clarity of your writing, corrects common errors, and occasionally gives you suggestions for rewording.  The thing about Grammarly, though, is that it’s a good proofreader, but not an editor. And, as any skilled writer will be happy to tell you, the editing is the secret.”

— Jim Stonos, Writer and Editor

LaTeX and Overleaf

When it comes to LaTeX documents, Overleaf is the first choice.

Microsoft Word works well, but it can become inefficient, especially when editing long research manuscripts. The more a document grows, the more tedious it becomes to keep track of references, tables, figures and formatting.

There is an alternative solution for preparing documents: LaTeX (pronounced la-tech or lay-tech). LaTeX would eliminate several problems in formatting manuscripts. Authors can keep track of references, standardise formatting throughout the document, and easily integrate tables, figures and equations into the text.

The most popular online LaTeX editor is called Overleaf. In the “Source” section on the left, you edit the unformatted text and use commands that help with formatting. The tool then compiles the commands and the unformatted text into a document that you can see on the right.

Try InstaText within Overleaf when working with LaTeX documents. Importantly, InstaText won’t correct your LaTeX commands (such as \ref, \cite etc.) within the text.

With InstaText for Chrome, you can use InstaText within your applications. All functions of InstaText Editor are retained, including Language settings and Personal dictionary.

Overleaf is one of the supported applications.

The InstaText speed advantage

InstaText is the most productive writing assistant, proofreader and editor you’ve ever worked with. It provides you with high-quality suggestions for improvements just seconds after your mouse click.

Unlike grammar checkers, InstaText gives you a great overview over revised text. You can finalize each paragraph with just a few clicks, because nothing is hidden from you.

“Excellent app, that helps writing to be done rapidly to a high standard, while maintaining pace and momentum at the first draft and beyond.”

— Paul Jenkins, Publisher

“An impressive and innovative writing and editing tool. Completely changed the way I write. A big thank you to the team that delivered this product!”

İbrahim Niftiyev, Researcher and PhD Candidate in Economics

“I have been using instaText for over a year. In that time, I have worked mostly in academia, on my doctoral thesis, a dozen papers, and, to a lesser extent, private correspondence. I have to admit that InstaText is superior to its competitors (I tested several), which mainly check grammar, punctuation, and spelling (InstaText makes you sound like a very educated native speaker). All in all, this software allows me to enjoy work and focus on WHAT I want to say without worrying about HOW I should say something.”
