Sometimes you may want to rewrite a particular piece of text, going beyond grammatical edits. Sapling's Rephrase product makes this straightforward.
To get started, first enable Rephrase in the Sapling dashboard.
Specify a keyboard shortcut (in most browsers, you can find this by going to the URL chrome://extensions/shortcuts).
From there, you should see the Sapling Rephrase icon () whenever you highlight text within a textbox or editor. Here's an example in Gmail:
Click on that icon to get suggested rewrites. Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut you specified earlier.
From there, simply click on the suggestion to replace the highlighted text with that suggestion or click the copy icon () to copy the suggestion.
The default rewrite paraphrases the text. Sapling also offers a "make formal" option (the bowtie icon). More styles of rewrites are coming soon.
