You can access Ulysses’ advanced check via the revision mode. This is a dedicated mode whose colors are optimized for the task of revising your text. In addition to the grammar and style check, you can also display annotations and the system’s spelling suggestions here.
The advanced check is an online service. Therefore, an internet connection is required to use it. When you use it for the first time, you will be asked to enable it. Later, all you need to do is open the sheet and analyze your text. You’ll have to initiate the text check for each sheet individually.
Our grammar and style check is powered by the proofreading software LanguageTool Plus, and is available for almost all of Ulysses’ localized languages: English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, and Spanish. Korean is the only language not currently supported.
Furthermore, you can check texts in Catalan, Ukrainian, Irish, Breton, Arabic, Romanian, Esperanto, Galician, Persian, Polish, Tamil, Slovak, Italian, Slovenian, Danish, Asturian, Greek, Tagalog, Khmer, Swedish, and Belarusian.
All you need to do is open the sheet you want to analyze, click the Revision icon in the toolbar (1), and select “Check Text…” (2).
Via the gear icon bottom right of the revision pane, you can disable suggestion categories you don’t need. Enabling the option “Ignored” allows you to browse the suggestions you’ve ignored before.
From here, you can also set if you want to show annotations and the system’s spelling suggestions in the revision view.
To disable the grammar and style check for your sheet, uncheck all options in the “Advanced Check” section.
You can quit revision mode by clicking Done in the toolbar top right.
Tapping a category, e.g., Grammar will open a list with all grammar suggestions the text check has found. Select a particular suggestion to get detailed information. Also, the editor will conveniently jump to the flagged passage in the text. Now you can select a recommended alternative or choose to ignore the suggestion.
Close the suggestion (circled x) to go back to the list of suggestions in this category. To head back to the categories overview, tap the four squares button at the top of the revision sidebar.
To quit revision mode, open the editor menu (circled ellipsis) and select “End Revision Mode”. If you switch to the sheet list or the library, revision mode will end automatically.
To end the revision mode, open the editor menu (circled ellipsis) and select “End Revision Mode” or open the sheet list.
You can also disable the advanced text check in general: Open the editor menu, select “Editor Settings”, choose “Revision Mode” and toggle off “Advanced Text Check”.
