What is PERRLA for Word?
When you purchase a subscription to PERRLA, it includes our desktop software that works directly with Microsoft Word (PERRLA for Word) and our online web-application (PERRLA Online).
PERRLA for Word is a two-part application. There is a desktop start-up application that allows you to create APA and MLA papers and a Microsoft Word Add-In for using PERRLA while you write your APA/MLA papers.
The Microsoft Word Add-In lives in the Microsoft Word Add-Ins tab, not the References tab. Using the References tab in Word will use Word's default formatting options which are incorrect for APA and MLA.
