    • Sentences
      • If you’re looking to simplify things for yourself, try simplifying the sentence. You wouldn’t say: “She had a great time with I.” You’d say: “She had a great time with me.”
  4. Made up
    • i calleds she on the phone.

 

None of the phrases/sentences were flagged.

Summary

Cannot really recommend the use of Microsoft’s Editor extension at this time.
