LONDON – 26-June-2019. Today Intelligent Editing, the leading provider of software for proofreading, announced the release of PerfectIt 4.
PerfectIt 4 scans documents faster so that users save time checking. Scans that previously took more than five minutes have been cut to just seconds. The time saving is especially significant for scientific, medical and pharmaceutical writers who will find that long documents such as regulatory submissions and dossiers are easier and faster to check.
Intelligent Editing has made significant enhancements to PerfectIt’s user experience by providing a clean and modern user interface. The new design streamlines the review panel, which makes it easier to review potential errors and decide how to address them with a single click. Intuitive navigation improves productivity and minimizes the learning curve for new users, allowing them to ramp up quickly.
Building on the law-focused style sheet launched in 2015, American Legal Style for PerfectIt now includes over 25,000 legal-specific corrections. Additions include more Bluebook corrections and more checks for issues in legal writing style and terms of art.
GPO style is used for US government documents, and it forms the starting point for numerous style manuals across a variety of government departments. PerfectIt 4 has built-in support for GPO style so users can automatically enforce thousands of preferences. Users can also adapt PerfectIt’s GPO style to their own house style rules and use it a base for any documents submitted to the US government.
PerfectIt is a proofreading and editing add-in for MS Word that checks for errors using familiar spell-check-like functionality and informative commentary.

American Legal Style is the legal-specific stylesheet that builds on PerfectIt’s basic checks and adds over 25,000 corrections that only a trained legal writer or editor would know to look for. It checks everything from consistent capitalization of defined terms and use of acronyms, to legal-specific typos and transposed letters in terms of art.
GPO Style determines the form and style of US Federal Government printing. The style is the product of public printing experience dating back to 1894; and its rules are based on principles of good usage and custom in the printing trade.
