Overview
The OneLook Thesaurus add-on for Google Docs brings the brainstorming power of OneLook and RhymeZone directly to your editing process. As you're writing a document in Google Docs, just select one of the 6 function buttons to find engaging alternatives, admirable adjectives, rapturous rhymes, and more.   

The add-on will use the word under your cursor to make the search. You can override this by selecting a word or multi-word phrase in your document explicitly with your mouse, or by typing a word or phrase into the side panel's search box. Click on a result to replace the word at your cursor (or your selection) with the result.

"Synonyms" shows you synonyms and similar words, as well as links to find definitions and usage examples. Synonyms will be returned first (and highlighted in yellow), but the results go far beyond what you'd find in a traditional thesaurus, giving you many nuanced alternatives that may make for suitable substitutions.   Your search can be a phrase -- more than just a single word -- giving you access to the popular "reverse dictionary" feature of OneLook.

"Triggers" shows you words that are commonly associated with your search.

"Rhymes" shows you rhymes (perfect and approximate). The results that are shaded in dark green are the "perfect" rhymes -- the greener the better.

"Complete" shows you words that start with the letters you've typed so far, which is useful to jog your memory if you only know the beginning of a word.

"Adjectives" shows you adjectives that are commonly used to describe your search word; this works best when your search word is a noun in need of description.

"Nouns" is the reverse; it shows you nouns that are commonly described by your search word; this works best when your search word is an adjective. Together, "Adjectives" and "Nouns" are useful for generating ideas for creative writing.

I can't get it to work. It's installed and shows up in the add-on menu, but when I try to use it none of the buttons work. I've tried typing in multiple words/phrases to no avail.

Hello! I'm the author of this extension. Are you not seeing OneLook in the "Add-ons" menu after installing? Let me know if you're getting an error message and I'll try to help. Thanks!

Hi! I just got this app today as well. After you you hit install, it will ask you what google account you would like to add it too. Then once you have the document up, select the add-on menu again and go to the option that says "OneLook Thesaurus" hover over it to bring the side menu. Select "Home" this will bring up the side module on your document.

Excellent add-on! I am not much for writing so OneLook is a huge help by providing so many options for synonyms.
