Grammarly grammar errors?


Why does does Grammarly view "I've" as a spelling mistake rather than recognising is as a contraction of I have?

Why does Grammarly suggest that an interrupter like "in fact" should have a comma before it but doesn't need one after it? Am I missing something?

Why is it not possible (I've just discovered) to copy text from this question field?

Grammarly defaults to checking for a formal, academic writing style. As such, all contractions are considered wrong -- most authorities (and teachers) consider contractions to be incorrect except in casual or creative writing.


You can change the settings in Grammarly to chick for other styles of writing.


Regarding the copy/paste of text. I've always been able to do it. Because the function resides on your computer and not on the web server, you need to look at your operating system settings and browser settings.
