What is PERRLA for Word?

Using PERRLA with Microsoft Word

PERRLA for Word  runs side-by-side with Microsoft Word*.  Think of it as a "helper" to Word.  You type the body of your paper in Word but use PERRLA to create and edit your Title Page, References, Citations, etc.  When you make changes in PERRLA for Word, your Word document is updated to reflect those changes.

*For the Windows version of Word, PERRLA lives “inside” Microsoft Word. Click here to see how that works.
