Basically, this is meant to eliminate highlighting things and constantly changing back and forth between colors (pretty much why gping sucks). Instead, you can click to control the changes. Now that I've added the ability to comment I figure it is ready for a thread. The instructions on the page are mostly complete but let me know if things are unclear etc. I've briefly tested this new version out and there weren't any bogs but of course let me know.

What is really neat is you can choose your own colors, and since it automatically strikes through removals, there won't be any confusion.

I know a lot of people use Chrome, but it crashes my computer so I can't test on it. This only works on Firefox.

The second point in the title is what prompted the updating. The problem with non-standard colors is people might not be used to them. Not going to use a name here, but I was reading through the changes and I definitely couldn't tell what was add and what was remove without constantly scrolling back.

To completely eliminate ambiguity, you can simply include strikethrough for removals, which this app makes really easy. It also looks nice for standard colors.

Obviously stuff that's too bright looks bad on the white background but that's what the test space is for.

yeah, it doesn't work on chrome. worth it to get firefox to try it out imo, if you don't already have it

OK I'm pretty sure it works on Chrome now, you just have to use Control + Alt instead of just Alt.

Also url change, no more /gp2, just /gp


you may need to control + f5 the pages (gp2 now gives a link go /gp)

you can now paste (am)checks and have colors appear on the editor (basically so you can give amcheck comments without having to wade through BB Code, directly in the app)

perhaps the best feature yet, you can toggle the red text, allowing you easily to read the changed sentence so you can check for flow, awkwardness, etc. Reading out loud is the number 1 way to catch weird things

Hi! This tool is really cool, and I wish it worked for mobile! ... which is why I'm here! If there were an efficient, effective way to GP on mobile, I know I and surely others would be able to get significantly involved in GPing. I do have a couple ideas for implementation if is at all possible, but if not, thanks anyways!

I remade this mostly the same way, so if anyone would like to test it out (do it on a single set or something) that would be cool :)

I uh forgot to do strikethrough but I did make it save your progress if you accidentally refresh or navigate away (also test this!)

Haund Sobi idk who else used, no one else said anything

just finished checking an analysis with this and it's great!! a couple of things
- the bb code doesnt provide the "add remove comments" thing automatically anymore and im a lazy fat ass so i need that
- refreshing or navigating away works and the progress is saved
- there isnt the add comment button so you have to add [c] [/c] manually, which is not a big deal for me personally since i used to do it anyway
- speaking of comments, is the fact that a "Comment:" is added automatically necessary?
in any case thanks a lot!!!:heart:
