By default, the Acrolinx Platform doesn’t sanitize files that you export from the Dashboard and display in your web browser. However, it's possible to configure the Acrolinx Platform to sanitize these files as well. This means that your exported file might include escaped characters. The only risk is that this might corrupt the layout of your exported file.
Acrolinx doesn't sanitize exported files by default because the sanitization can change or introduce characters that are important for defining the file layout. This problem mostly occurs with exported CSV files. For example, if you use the semicolon
; character to delimit your columns, the column layout could become corrupted because escaped characters introduce new semicolons. This is why it’s important to do a few test exports after you enable this feature.
