Casady & Greene have updated their system wide grammar checker application, Grammarian, to version 2.1.2. Grammarian runs in the background and monitors grammer in all applications. According to Casady & Greene:
Casady & Greene, Inc., publishers of award-winning software since 1984, announced today the release of Grammarian(tm) 2 for the Macintosh.
This free update to version 2.1.2 fixed a problem with Rich Text Format (RFT) text in Microsoft(tm) Word, and enhanced the speed of the Grammar Engine.
Using Grammarian is like having a built-in grammar checker in your system software which works with virtually every program on your computer, whether or not a program has a grammar checker. Grammarian can check grammar mechanics, punctuation, and phrase usage in either an interactive (when you finish a sentence) or batch (user selected text) mode.
Grammarian v2.1.2 has:
- Added identification of proper nouns when starting a sentence through the use of trigram probabilities. Example: Wells is an English novelist.
- Fixed a bug which caused a problem with Rich Text Format (RTF) text in Microsoft (TM) Word.
- Added Find/Replace module for FrameMaker 6.0. This provides better compatibility when batch-checking a document in FrameMaker 6.0.
- Added a new file which contains a description of the Abbreviations Topics rules. Previous versions did not contain the description.
- Enhanced the Grammar Engine making document batch-checking faster.
- Fixed other interface and cosmetic problems.
Grammarian is available for US$39.95. You can find more information at the Casady & Greene web site.
