I have installed GPT for Docs, how do I start?

Is the GPT for Docs add-on free to use?
Yes, GPT for Docs is currently available for free, but you need to bring your OpenAI or Anthropic API key and pay the OpenAI or Anthropic API cost.
Do I need an API key?
Yes, you need to create and set up an OpenAI API key in GPT for Docs to access the models available in your OpenAI account.
My OpenAI API free trial is expired or inactive even though I've never used it...

You can double check if it is indeed expired by trying to run a prompt on the official playground.

Your OpenAI free trial will not work if you have already used the phone number with which you verified your OpenAI account for another OpenAI account. Creating a new account with a new phone number should provide you with a working free trial.

ChatGPT Plus/Pro subscriptions don't cover the use of OpenAI APIs, which are used by GPT for Docs.
Is GPT-4 supported?

Yes, GPT-4 and GPT-4 Turbo are supported, provided that these models are available in your OpenAI account. To check if you have access, go to the OpenAI playground and check if you can select GPT-4 models there.

Why is my response cut or incomplete?

Models have a maximum token limit, which is the maximum total number of tokens that can be used in both the input and the response. This means models may not provide complete responses to long queries or when a large portion of text is selected as input.

To stay within the token limit, you can:

  • Highlight a smaller portion of text in your document
  • Reduce the value of Max response tokens
  • Select a model with a higher limit (context window)
Can I use my custom GPT and Assistants API?
Unfortunately the current OpenAI API, used by GPT for Docs, does not support these features.

Which languages can I use?

Models work in many languages, but deliver the best results in English. All we can say is try it. It is usually better to prompt in the language you want the response to be in. In any case, avoid mixing languages in a prompt.
