You can click any of the icons in the Reports group to generate a summary document which is copied to the clipboard. This can then be pasted into any document. The options are:

  • Summary of Possible Errors: outputs the potential errors that Perfect finds to a single document in order to quickly get a feel for the number of consistency issues.

    Note

    This option is only available before running PerfectIt’s checks.

  • Generate Report of Changes: outputs the errors found using PerfectIt and the changes made.

    Note

    This option is only available after running PerfectIt’s checks.

  • Compile Text in Comments: copies all the text in comments into one report, making it easier to present a list of changes made to an author.

  • Table of Abbreviations: automatically generates a table of abbreviations and acronyms with their definitions. Any acronyms that have not been defined will be listed beneath the table.
