Adobe Experience Manager - Supported Content

What You Can Check

You can check content in the Touch UI in AEM. You can also check HTML content in Content Fragments.

If you use the XML Documentation Add-on for AEM, then you can also use Acrolinx for AEM to check your Assets DITA content.

Acrolinx for AEM supports DITA and XML document formats. This includes the DITA document types: concept, reference, task, topic. You can check your content with Acrolinx in Author mode.

Supported file types:

TypeExtension
XML*.dita, *.xml

What Acrolinx Includes in Your Check

Acrolinx for AEM checks all the default AEM components that you can edit. Acrolinx includes checks from AEM Sites.

Acrolinx can insert suggestions into most components. For some components, Acrolinx can check and highlight your content, but the cards in the Sidebar won't replace the content.

Acrolinx can check, highlight, and insert suggestions into the following components:

  • Table
  • Text
  • Title
  • Text and Image (Text)
  • Image (Description field)

Acrolinx can check and highlight (but won't insert suggestions into) the following components:

  • Image (Title and alt text)
  • Edit Dialog
  • Title field in Page Properties
  • Article
  • Article List
  • Custom components


If you have special or custom components, then we have a special tool you can use, the Acrolinx Configuration Assistant. The Acrolinx Configuration Assistant helps you configure which AEM custom components you want Acrolinx to check. And you no longer need to edit the custom components configuration file (CustomComponents.json) in CRXDE Lite. You can write, validate, and preview your configuration results all in one place. 

It can be a little tricky to analyze the structure of your page, so you might need some help from your administrator. Find out more in the section Define Custom Components With the Acrolinx Configuration Assistant in our Acrolinx for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Administrator Guide.
