ClearEdits Clean Up is a free utility that lets writers work with documents containing ClearEdits’ writing improvement advice. When writers receive a marked up document from coworkers, colleagues, professors, and others, they can easily review and accept or reject ClearEdits’ suggestions without purchasing ClearEdits.

To download a single copy of ClearEdits Clean Up for free, simply complete the following form. After you click on "Submit," you will be able to download Clean Up.

Note that Clean Up does not offer editing suggestions—if you need software to mark up your document and to offer editing suggestions, please purchase ClearEdits 5.0. If you already own ClearEdits, you do not need Clean Up (and installing it will cause ClearEdits to stop working)—ClearEdits already includes the Clean Up functions.

For help with installing ClearEdits Clean Up, please see our Installation Guide. And for help using Clean Up, see our User Guide.
