Using the new PERRLA Add-in for Microsoft Word
Unlike previous versions of PERRLA for Word, the new PERRLA Add-in for Word is installed directly inside of Word through the Microsoft Word Add-in Store.
Here's how to get started with the new PERRLA Add-in:
- Open Microsoft Word
- Go to the Insert ribbon tab
- Select Get Add-ins
If your screen is smaller, you may need to click Add-ins before you see Get Add-ins from the dropdown menu.
- Search for PERRLA in the window
- Click Add
The first time you add PERRLA, it may take a few seconds for the Add-in to load. Once it's loaded, you'll see a tooltip for the new PERRLA ribbon tab.
The PERRLA ribbon tab should show up in any Word document moving forward. If it doesn't, you can add it with the Add-ins button in the Insert ribbon tab. However, instead of going to Get Add-ins, click My Add-ins. Then, select PERRLA.
Using PERRLA in iOS
You can use the new PERRLA Add-in with Microsoft Word on your iPad!
- Open Word on your iPad
- Go to the Insert tab
- Click Add-ins on the far right
- Select See All at the bottom of the menu
- Scroll down & press Add beside PERRLA
This will open the PERRLA side panel inside of Word.
Unlike the desktop version of Word, PERRLA on iOS doesn't include its own ribbon tab at the top. However, you'll have access to everything through the side-panel and menu button.
