I installed the grammar checker plugin v1.3 for Studio 2015 SR2 12.2 on a new Windows 10 Pro (1607) PC.
However, each time I make a grammar error, all that this grammar checker shows are 3 question marks (???), but no description of the errors I made.
I also used the same version of Grammar Checker on a Windows 7 Pro PC ansd there Grammar Checker does indeed gives a description of the errors I made.
How can I make Grammar Checker work on my Windows 10 PC? Any suggestions?
We are investigating this in another thread at the moment. It may be that Office 365 is the culprit here as it does not provide all the components we need to be able to hook into the Word features. It works fine if you have the MSI version of Word installed. Andrea-Melinda Ghisa might be able to update this thread next week sometime.
We're struggling with this because we cannot reproduce the problem at all. We've installed various kinds of MSOffice, installed in different ways, and we don't have a problem.
However, maybe worth seeing if toggling this option makes a difference? So if it's checked uncheck it and run verification again:
As Paul said we're struggling at this moment with the plugin because we can't reproduce the issue in order to fix it.
Could you please test this version, you'll receive a warning message because is not a signed plugin, is just a version for testing. I added a logging system to this version, hopefully we'll catch some errors.
After you test it could you please send me the log file, you can find it at this path: C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\SDL Community\GrammarChecker , where [UserName]- is your account name.
Thank you for your help and sorry for my late reply, as I again didn't receive an e-mail to say there was a reply for my question, although I received e-mails for Paul's replies.
Anyway, I uninstalled version 1.3 and installed this new version, but I still get !!! when there's a grammar error (in this case the translation is into Dutch) - see this screenshot:
As you can't reproduce this, I start to think that the reason of these !!! lies somewhere else. The only information that I can give, is that I installed Office 365 on a brand new PC running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit (1607) fully updated and that I installed Office 365 immediatly after having installed Windows (which was in fact preinstalled), meaning that I installed Studio after Office 365.
Maybe there's a setting that I must change in Word 365 to make Grammar Checker work correctly?
Sorry, I indeed forgot to attach to log files.
I did today again a grammar check with this new version and the log was indeed modified, but remained 0 kb and empty. The log with previous version 1.3 is also empty and 0 kb. Do you want the log files? If so, please tell me how to attach them, because it seems I can't attach files to my replies.
Hello Paul & Andrea,
Sorry, I didn't see Insert, because I was looking for Attach...
Please find above the logs in a zip file.
PS: I again didn't receive an e-mail to notify me of your replies, although I checked "Notify me" in the advanced edit settings. This is one of the reasons why I don't really like to use this list = much more complicated than the Yahoo list using e-mail/Outlook [:(]. But I'll continue to use it because of better replies with it... [:)].
I added some log info to Grammar plugin could you please uninstall the plugin, and install this version 1.5 and send me please the log file again?
The log is now OK (I think). Please find the log here: grammarLog.zip

One way to attract peoples attention is to name them by typing an @ symbol first and then their user name that you see when they post. You should get an email now saying you were mentioned in this thread.
Also, if you check your Activity tab then you will see all the threads you are personally involved in which is very handy, especially if you can't find something:
Stick with it... after you start to learn the little tricks it gets easier and I think this medium does offer a lot of advantages over Yahoo... never mind the fact this one is full of SDL people who are willing to help in addition to all the great answers we see from other users.
