In the new PERRLA Add-in, your Word documents are always completely normal Word documents!
In previous versions of PERRLA, it would save and manage your Word files inside the My PERRLA Papers folder. That was great, but it also limited how you could organize your papers and class files.
Since the new PERRLA Add-in lives inside of Word (and doesn’t have a separate application), you can save and organize all of your papers wherever you want – just like you do with normal Word documents.
That means you can manage all of your papers however you'd like. You don't have to worry about saving them in a particular folder, losing them, or having to use a PERRLA application to start working on them. Just open them directly or with Word.
Side-note: if you move your paper to another computer, you can still use PERRLA with it. You’ll just need to add the PERRLA Add-in to Word on that other computer.
