Acrolinx for Oxygen Eclipse - Supported Content

What You Can Check

Acrolinx for Oxygen Eclipse works in the Oxygen XML Editor.

Eclipse might not associate some file types with the Oxygen XML Editor by default. So, if you want to check Markdown or text, for example, you need to configure Eclipse to use Oxygen XML Editor to open those.

You can use the Sidebar with Author and Text views, but the Sidebar works best with Author view. And we don't support Grid and Table views.

Supported file types:

TypeExtension
HTML*.html, *.xhtml
XML*.xml, *.dita, *.ditamap
Text*.txt
Markdown*.md

Your Acrolinx administrator can extend the file types that Acrolinx checks. See the article Configure Acrolinx to Recognize Your File Type to learn more.

Sometimes, Acrolinx highlights an issue that contains multiple tag types. Acrolinx doesn't support mixed tag text like this. Cards where the highlighted text contains multiple tag types become grayed out when you click on them.

DITA Maps and References

Acrolinx for Oxygen supports DITA map checks. When you check a DITA map, the Sidebar doesn't highlight issues in the text or replace issues for you. The cards give you all the information you need to correct your content. And you can edit your issues directly and use all the other features of the Sidebar.

You can check DITA referenced content in Author view. This isn't possible in Text view, since Oxygen itself doesn’t resolve these references there. For referenced content, you'll get inactive Sidebar cards that influence the Acrolinx Score.

Supported DITA references: conkeyref, conref, keyref, topicref.

DITA reference support is available with Core Platform 2019.10 and later.
