Getting Started

WordRake adds editing controls for clarity, brevity, and simplicity to your Microsoft Word menu. To take a tour of WordRake, click here. Here are the steps for using WordRake to edit your document.


Open the WordRake ribbon:

When you open Microsoft Word, there will be a new tab in the menu called WordRake (in Word 2010 and later) or Add-Ins (in Word 2007). To access the WordRake controls, select the WordRake tab. 



Choose Your Preferred Editing Feedback:

Check the box to tell WordRake which types of editing suggestions you'd like to receive. Select Brevity to shorten sentences or Simplicity to change complex words into familiar ones. You can select both. If you don't choose, you will receive only Brevity suggestions.



Click Rake to Get Suggestions:

Next, click the Rake button. Clicking the Rake button reveals WordRake's suggestions.


If you click the Rake button with no text selected, the software will Rake the entire document. To Rake only certain sections, highlight the desired text and select Rake.


Choose Which Suggestions to Keep:

Use the WordRake Accept and Reject controls to indicate which suggestions to keep.
