|Acrolinx Plug-in for Arbortext Editor||Version 1.5 or later|
The Acrolinx menu is no longer visible in Arbortext Editor.
This problem sometimes occurs when an incorrect customization directory is specified during the Acrolinx Plug-in installation. The installer points to the default customization directory typically used by Arbortext, but the location of the customization directory defined in your environment may be different.
Resolving the Problem
Check the contents of your Arbortext Editor customization directory (<INSTALL_DIR>\Arbortext\Editor\custom) and make sure that the following files are located in the "init" directory:
If the files are not there, check to see if the APTCUSTOM system variable is defined. This variable is set when there is a different customization directory than the default customization directory normally used by the Arbortext Editor.
To check if the APTCUSTOM variable is defined:
- Go to Start > Run.
- Enter "cmd". This brings up a DOS-like prompt.
- Enter "set". This displays all system variables. APTCUSTOM should be near the top.
- If the APTCUSTOM variable is present, then uninstall and reinstall the Acrolinx Plug-in from the command line.
- Open a command-line shell and navigate to the directory that contains your plug-in installer.Example:
- Enter the install command with the following syntax:
msiexec /i acroPlugIn.msi ARBORTEXT<VERSION>CUSTOMDIR="<CUSTOM_DIR>"For example, if your custom directory is the location "c:\myepiccustom" and you use version 6 of Arbortext Editor, enter the following command:
msiexec /i acroPlugIn.msi ARBORTEXT6CUSTOMDIR="c:\myepiccustom"For other versions of Arbortext Editor, use one of the following CUSTOMDIR variables:
ARBORTEXT5XCUSTOMDIR (for versions 5.0-5.3)
- Open a command-line shell and navigate to the directory that contains your plug-in installer.
