Is there some way to separate the rules for business/school writing and that of writing fiction? I see nothing wrong with "she smiled, but didn't say anything" but your program wants to change it to "she smiled and said nothing" I used your program to edit my recent book and make all the changes it suggested. Now, after the excitement of releasing the book is over, I regret some of those changes like the example here. It just does not read right in a fiction novel in my uneducated opinion. Perhaps you could have different modes? Profession, Educational, Instructional, Entertaining, and possibly Children where when you switch modes it turns on and off certain rules, making it better for what you are doing. I hope I said that clearly.

The grade sheet can be a little distracting as if someone person is is judging us and looking over our shoulder. That feature ought to be optional.

If I type too fast, the program goes out of control and gobbles up my test until I can figure out a way to turn it off. Yesterday it gobbled 20 pages of a nearly finished ms, and this was automatically saved before I could cut it off. Normally I can recover, but this problem must be corrected as a priority.

"whole world" is more readable than "entire world." Try to say "entire world" out loud. Now try to say "whole world." The use of the word "readability" is amibiguous. If a text is read out loud you will find many of your suggestions to be unreadable, rather unspeakable. Consider the "speakability" of the text. You need to employ a great poet for this.

evolve is not "business jargon" it is in the language of all sciences, particularly biology, evolution theory, psychology, cosmoslogy, personal growth, etc.
