Get Started With Acrolinx for Oxygen XML Web Author

Where's my Sidebar?

Once you've installed Acrolinx for Oxygen XML Web Author, open a document. You'll see an Acrolinx dropdown in the right-side menu panel. Click it to make the Acrolinx Sidebar appear.

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 the Interface Language

By default, the Sidebar appears in English. If your Oxygen XML Web Author language is German, French, or Japanese, then your Sidebar will also appear in this language.
