Get Started With Acrolinx for FrameMaker

Where's my Sidebar?

Acrolinx is available as soon as you open FrameMaker, but you'll need to show the Sidebar before you can start checking. To show the Sidebar, follow these steps:

  1. Select Acrolinx in the top menu.
  2. Select Show Sidebar.

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?

You can change your Acrolinx URL by signing out and signing in again. Sign out from the slide-out menu in the Sidebar.



Change the Interface Language

By default, the Sidebar appears in English. If you set your FrameMaker language to German, French, Japanese, or Swedish, then your Sidebar will also appear in this language.
