Pros
What I like most about PerfectIt is the dedication of the staff to keep making improvements, provide excellent customer service, and keep the price affordable.
PerfectIt has been an invaluable tool and the customer service has always been outstanding. It is recommended a lot in editing groups and there's a reason for that.
I've only been using this tool for a week but am already super impressed by its capabilities and ease of use. The integration with CMOS is a game-changer.
Cons
Chokes on documents with tables and graphs (I work on documents that have lots of each and removing these isn't an option).
PerfectIt! caught some of them. Example: yoga asana (a pose in yoga) would be yoga aasana (double a at the beginning) in the book, which should present as a spelling error.
Is it the software's fault that an effort is required to do so, or my fault because I'm too lazy to figure out HOW to do so.

The tool you didn't know you needed

Reviewed 3 years ago

Having the right tools makes me a better editor. PerfectIt is one of the best tools I have.

Pros

It's easy to use, thorough, and extremely customizable. It does all the tedious stuff that makes my eyes and my head ache, and lets me use my time for the stuff that needs an editor's brain.

Cons

I can't complain about a thing. It's a brilliant piece of software.

Time savings are far greater than the cost

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ensuring consistency in usage in long documents and books has been made easy by PerfectIt, and I always enjoy using it. It's intuitive, easy to use, and fast.

Pros

PerfectIt is fast, accurate, and makes no changes without my approval. I'm able to edit far faster and more thoroughly using PerfectIt than I could without it. The complexity of the scientific papers I edit requires concentration on the meaning, and having the mundane, repetitive work done by PerfectIt frees me up to concentrate on clarifying the language.

Cons

PerfectIt was very easy to integrate with my existing business processes. An area that could be improved is the process of blending styles. Also, locating the style files on my computer to move them into different directories could be made easier. Another improvement would be to enable adding to the built-in list of scientific measures (mm, kW, mL, etc.) so they're recognized when adding a nonbreaking space before them.

Interesting, but not impressive

Reviewed 8 months ago

I use it for important documents. I like that it helps me maintain consistency of style. I don't like that it can get stuck. I think it should be less expensive.

Pros

I like that I only have to run it once. It gives me good recommendations for editing my documents. It covers an area that other programs don't: style and consistency.

Cons

Sometimes it gets stuck. The process can be slow.

I adore this software and recommend it to anyone who writes.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wonderful. Best software I've bought and worth every penny.

Pros

PerfectIt is easy to use and set up. You can create your own Style Sheets, which is so useful in the publishing industry. The speed it carries out the required edits is brilliant and saves me so much time.

Cons

I honestly can't say... Whenever I've had a question or something go wrong, it's typically been my 'fault' for not being able to find it and as soon as I post in the Facebook group or send an official problem ticket to PI, the issues is resolved almost immediately.
