|Acrolinx for Office on Windows||1.2|
What You Should Know Before Installing
Before you install Acrolinx for Office on Windows, make sure that you have the following software installed:
|Microsoft Office||2010, 2013, 2016 (32- & 64-bit)|
|Microsoft .NET Framework||4.5 or later|
Check our compatibility guide if you want to know if Acrolinx for Office works with your local platform and with your Acrolinx platform.
To get started, review the following tasks and concepts:
Normal view in PowerPoint is the best view for using Acrolinx. You can still check your content with the Outline View, Slide View, Notes Page, Reading View, or Master view. But when it comes to editing your content with the Sidebar, Acrolinx asks you to switch to Normal view. You might need to run the check again.
Supported file types:
|PowerPoint file||*.ppt, *.pptx, *.pptm|
Acrolinx for PowerPoint comes with your Acrolinx for Office on Windows package.
If you do the installation yourself, ask your Acrolinx administrator for the installer file. You might have it already, if you and the Acrolinx administrator are the same person.
Here's how to install Acrolinx:
You can change your Acrolinx Server address by signing out and signing in again. Sign out from the slide-out menu in the Sidebar.
Sometimes, Acrolinx checks part of your content but can't highlight the issue or automatically insert suggestions. If you see a padlock in the Sidebar card, you can edit the issue directly in the text.
Acrolinx checks content in speaker notes. But Acrolinx can’t highlight issues in the speaker notes section. These cards are inactive by default. If you want Acrolinx to insert suggestions in speaker notes, you can update your Content Profile. Keep in mind that Acrolinx still won’t be able to highlight the issues in speaker notes.
Optional: Specify the Address of an Acrolinx Server with an MSI Installer Property
If you use the MSI installer properties to automate the installation of Acrolinx, you can also now specify the address of an Acrolinx server. So, writers don't have to enter this information themselves. To set that Acrolinx server address, use the property ACROLINX_SERVER_ADDRESS.
Specify the address of the Acrolinx Server.
Example:Note: This property works for first-time installations only. The property is ignored during an update and whichever server address currently configured is used.
