On Lite Literary website, I found a neat macro checking the currently open document for adverbs, passive words, overly used words and cliches/misused words and then highlighting them in different colors.
The directions say:
If you are using Word 2007, then go to the Developer tab. (If you don't have a Developer tab in your ribbon bar, you might need to go to Word options and enable it first.) Click on the Visual Basic button on the Developer tab to open the macro editor. Then, paste the code in and click the Save button and close the macro editor. And to run the macro, simply click on the Macros button on the Developer tab to get a list of available macros that you can execute.
Actually, I'm using 2010, but the feature doesn't seem changed. WHERE do I paste it? HOW?
