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.

Very good plugin. I just wish there was an easier way to trigger a word search than having to go to the menu bar each time.

I don't mind having to trigger the app off the toolbar. Same's true in Word. What would really rock is if you highlighted a word, toggled the app and had that word appear in the search box rather than have to paste or type it in. The content beats Word by far! Change the input method and this is a five star installation.

The app has stalled out on initial use. It stalls while "Checking Versions" on initial use. Is unusable. Installed the add-on on 2 different computers with the same result.

This add-on was incredibly useful when it worked. Now, however, I get no results when typing a word into the search bar. Please fix this bug ASAP!

The quality of the thesaurus is second to none. Rhymes and triggers are equally useful. Hovering the mouse over the items in the menu on the right reveals a definition, very useful for deciding which synonym to select. This would be a killer app, well worth paying a subscription for, if only its functions were able to be invoked from the keyboard.

The best I found but could be improved. There are words that are at a higher educational level that are not being shown.
