It's in there, just haven't announced it.

Is it the same as "rewriteText" action?

What is the difference between "rewriteText" and "randomSpin" results?

Thanks a lot in advance.

In TBS itself (can't say about the API, because I don't have it), "rewrite text" makes a permanent difference to a piece of text in your article. So if you wrote in your article "The roof is the last part of a house to be built", then the auto rewrite might change it to, "The rooftop may be the last a part of a home to become built." This changes your actual text in your document and works on the "Article" tab. A random spin works on the "Spun article" tab and gives you possible spins from the text you have spun on the "Article" tab. So if your spun text on the "Article" tab is {Mary|Jane|Peter} {had|stole} a {piece of cake|bun|little lamb}, then your random spin might be "Mary had a little lamb" or it might be "Jane stole a piece of cake", etc. All those possibilities remain there for creating future articles, they do not change your "Article" tab text in any way, they just show you a version of what you have created.

Thanks a lot, Meg, but I wonder about the difference between "rewriteText" and "randomSpin" functions results in the API not in TBS itself because as far as I understand the result should be similar - auto rewritten article - but there could be differences in algorithm and quality of the results (perhaps)...

They're entirely different.  rewriteText does the same thing as the Auto-Rewrite Text button does, randomSpin just generates a spun version of the spintax you pass to it (like clicking New Spin on the Spun Article tab).

Hi Jon. API query limit is 250 a day. If I use my desktop application, is there any limit?
Thanks!

The desktop app has no limits, only the API.

I thought that there are two ways to auto-rewrite text:

1 way: authenticate->replaceEveryonesFavorites->randomSpin = rewritten article
2 way: authenticate->rewriteText = rewritten article

Am I wrong?  If the result of these two sequences is new rewritten text - what is the difference in algo and quality of the outcome?

Hello,
how the words are counted in the API?

When I use PHP function "str_word_count" on my text I get 3249 words, but when I send this text to API I get an error: "Your document contains more than the maximum allowed 5,000 words and phrases."

I check my text in MS Word 2007 and I get 3281 words.

So... how the words are counted in the API?

Okay guys, the API now has the ability to pass a comma-delimited list of protected words/phrases.

Everything else is the same, just pass a variable called "protectedterms" that contains your words/phrases, separated by commas.  e.g. ("diet,diets,modern diets").  The order of the terms doesn't matter, since the API will resort them anyway.

Jon

I add # to my list but it's not work ):
