This known issue affects Acrolinx version 4.7 classic edition plug-ins that use the Windows SDK.
Context-Sensitive Guidelines Don't Work When Checking Profiles Aren't On
In some Acrolinx classic edition plug-ins, Acrolinx doesn't apply the contexts for checking when:
- Contextual definitions for guidelines are set,
- Checking profiles are turned off on the Acrolinx server.
Your linguistic admin can configure guidelines to work only in certain contexts in your documents. For example, you may have guidelines that only apply to titles or bulleted lists. Acrolinx relies on the plug-ins to get the contextual information from your documents to apply contextual guidelines.
Plug-ins don't send contexts to the server so context sensitive rules won't work. This problem only occurs if you use a server without checking profiles.
- Enable checking profiles on your server, then the plug-ins correctly send the contexts.
- Downgrade to a version <4.7 of the plug-in.
- Update to 4.7 SR1 XMetaL.
- Update to a sidebar edition plug-in for your editor if available.
