Solve the spelling, grammatical or punctuation errors to find accurate clues to solve the crossword.

I defer to someone more skilled to know if the said errors are varied and confusing enough to produce a viable crossword.

On a simple didactic level, this tool would introduce crosswords but also expand editing ability.

The cut from pink scissors. (3,6)

       It's the cats lingerie. (1,1)

       I bunned it for the concept, but I don't understand either of the examples shared so far.

       While I know the answers to the two above, I'm not sure that they really fit with the "find the error" prescription...

       //The cut from pink scissors. (3,3)// The answer is: "redact" (red act)
What's my prize, and where is it?

       So ... in [beany]'s example, there seems to be a missing apostrophe. What's that meant to suggest? I'm mystified.

       you put the apostrophe in square 1, and the other 1 is for the pedant's correction length as a clue.   

       I interpreted "pink scissors" as pinking and "ing" is three letters long. "oh, you meant to write pinking scissors" So I would write "ing" which is three letters long in spot 3

       Thank you.

       [+] Thank you.

       Sorry my simple example had two errors (3,3) should have been (6)   

       [beanangel], strangely by my mistake your interpretation is better. So it should be (3,6). Thanks.   

       [xenzag], You win a prize promotion to the cryptic section.
