Problems with Alibre software caused by Grammarly

We've now had at least a couple of cases reported where users have found many dialogues in Alibre impossible to use - won't select with mouse etc.

It seems that the Grammarly app is 'checking' things on a rapid cycle and disrupts access to some UI items - this applies not just to text fields.

So - I recommend don't install Grammarly. If you have Grammarly installed and Alibre Design or Atom3D is behaving strangely, consider removing it.

If anyone has Grammarly installed without it leading to any problems with Alibre software, it would be interesting - there might be options or an install order than can work around this problem.

Not enough reports to be specific, and I don't believe we were given details of Grammarly version - this is just a heads up to make people aware of a possible issue.
 
Okay. Thanks, DavidJ. I used to use Grammarly on a regular basis but could no longer justify its expense. Times have changed and was looking at installing it again. This time the need outweighs the cost, I think. If I proceed in doing so, I'll make note of anything i notice and pass it along.
 
I'm using Grammarly, and I am having the same issue. Running the program as an administrator seems to stop the problem. I can't remember where I read the workaround.
