However, the extension’s features in this writing mode are limited and randomly available. It’s related to the problem with anchoring the extension to the text.
The biggest issue is the visibility of the LT check button. In a Google Docs Page Mode, it sits on the left margin of the page. When you switch to the Pageless Mode, the button goes off the display (see the screenshot below).
There is an easy trick to make the button visible. Here is how to do it.
A trick to make the LanguageTool button visible in a Google Docs Pageless Mode
1. Start typing “outline” in the “Search the menus” box, and select “Show outline” from a dropdown menu.
2. Close the outline view by clicking the left arrow in the top-left corner of the outline panel.
From now on, you can see the LT button in the Google Docs Pageless Mode.
You may ask: “Why can’t you just go back to the Page Mode?”. Well, I hate the page layout mode. It resembles old, unfriendly text editors, and it discourages me from writing.
The Pageless Mode makes Google Docs look and feel like new-generation workspaces, such as Notion. And it was the main reason for sticking to Google Docs when I closed my Notion account.
Note: Until LanguageTool releases a fix, the sentence rewriter works in Google Docs Pageless Mode only in the first section. In the next section or sections, it either works or not, and this is totally random.
Let’s hope one day the LanguageTool team find a way to increase the usability of the LT Chrome extension in the Google Docs Pageless Mode. I praise the LT for giving accurate spelling suggestions and for a wonderful AI sentence rewriter option.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.
