Acrolinx for IBM Notes - Version 1.0 (9 January 2018)
We're really excited to introduce Acrolinx for IBM Notes - Sidebar edition. Take a look at all that it has to offer.
Installing Acrolinx for IBM Notes
The Sidebar edition is available as a widget. So, you don't need an MSI installer for installation like you did for the Classic edition. You can install or update Acrolinx easily with the following update site: https://updates.acrolinx.com/sidebar/notes/
For detailed instructions, see Acrolinx for IBM Notes .
Lighter Version of the Sidebar for IBM Notes
Open Acrolinx Sidebar from Menu or Ribbon
The Acrolinx Classic edition came with menu items and buttons. Now, there's only one button to access the Sidebar and you’ll find everything you need in the Sidebar itself.
Sidebar Start Page
When you start using the Sidebar in IBM Notes, you’ll probably wonder where to find all the things you already know from the Classic edition. You’ll find everything you need, like options, help, or log files on the Sidebar start page or in the slide-out menu.
And if you’re having trouble connecting to Acrolinx, then you can take a look at this troubleshooting article , which you can also open from the start page.
Checking Profiles in IBM Notes with the Sidebar
With the new Sidebar edition, you can select Checking Profiles in the Options section in the Sidebar. This wasn't possible in the Classic edition even if Checking Profiles were enabled. That’s a win for the Sidebar!
You'll need a new license to get the Sidebar edition activated.
Manage Extraction Settings on the Server
With the Classic edition, you configured your extraction settings directly in Acrolinx for IBM Notes. For all Sidebar editions, you now configure Content Profiles in the Acrolinx dashboard. Your guidance package comes with default Content Profiles for different file types and editors. If you use custom templates in IBM Notes, you'll need to customize a Content Profile. As part of your update delivery of Acrolinx 5.3, we'll migrate your Classic edition extraction settings to Content Profiles to work with the Sidebar edition.
We've developed and tested this version of the Acrolinx with IBM Notes version 9.0.1 FP8.
Acrolinx for IBM Notes requires the following Acrolinx products:
- Acrolinx Server version 5.3 or later
- Acrolinx guidance package version 5.3 or later
Acrolinx Sidebar version 14.5 or later.
Sidebar Doesn't Work for Documents Opened in a New Window
If you open an IBM Notes document in a new window, the Sidebar won't open. This is because the Acrolinx Sidebar opens in the Notes sidebar panel. The Notes sidebar panel is available only for the application main window, but not for new windows. So the Sidebar only opens for documents opened in the main application window.
