Known Issues

Acrolinx Runs Slowly with Microsoft Word Version 16.16

If you find that Acrolinx is running slowly in Microsoft Word, check the version number of Microsoft Word. We’ve noticed that it runs slowly in version 16.16 (released in August 2018). If you have version 16.16, try upgrading to version 16.20. After you upgrade, you should notice an improvement in performance.

In Sketch, Acrolinx Can’t Replace Text for You

In many Acrolinx integrations, you can click a replacement suggestion in the Sidebar and Acrolinx updates the text in your document. This feature isn’t possible in Sketch, so you’ll see the “light” Sidebar instead. You can still click a replacement suggestion, and Acrolinx will highlight the relevant text in the document. However, you’ll have to type the replacement yourself.

Platform Support

Removed Support for Older Versions of macOS and Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office 2011 and macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) aren’t supported. If you have these versions, upgrade your system or stick with an earlier version of Acrolinx for Mac.
