Get Started With Acrolinx for Chrome

Where's my Sidebar?

You can toggle showing and hiding the Sidebar by clicking  in your Chrome toolbar.

If you click to show the Sidebar and the icon turns red  it means that we can't show the Sidebar on that page. Try to show the Sidebar on a different page.

If you've set your browser language to English, German, French, Japanese, or Swedish, then the Sidebar will also appear in this language. For all other languages, the Sidebar will appear in English. If you need to, you can change the language in the advanced settings.

Sign in to Acrolinx

When you open the Sidebar for the first time, you'll land on a start page where Acrolinx asks you for connection details. The Acrolinx Core Platform does the heavy lifting when it comes to analyzing your content, so you'll need to connect to one before you start checking. Your Acrolinx administrator should’ve given you your Acrolinx URL and sign-in details.
  1. Enter your Acrolinx URL and click CONNECT.

  2. Click SIGN IN to open the Acrolinx sign-in page. A browser window opens where you can enter your sign-in details and confirm the request to access your account.

And you're in! Hello Sidebar!

Change Your Acrolinx URL
