Acrolinx Desktop Checker - Version 1.0 (Official Release 19 July 2018)
Our new Sidebar Desktop Checker is so fantastic! It will blow your mind! To check your content you can simply open a file from your computer or copy and paste text into the Acrolinx editor area. A piece of cake!
You probably know our Classic edition Desktop Checker that worked on Windows only. If you’re a Mac user you got a Desktop Checker packaged with Acrolinx for Mac. Our new Desktop Checker has more to offer, it works on Linux, Mac, and Windows. You get a separate installer file for each platform.
Supports Various File Types
The Classic edition and Mac Desktop Checker could only read plain text. The new Sidebar Desktop Checker reads all file types that the Acrolinx platform supports. This includes: text, html, xml, GitHub markdown, JSON, .properties, and Java comments. The sky's the limit!
When you start using the new Desktop Checker, you’ll probably wonder where to find all the things you already know from the Classic edition. Don't worry! You’ll find everything you need on the Sidebar start page or in the slide-out menu.
