What Acrolinx Includes in Your Check

If you turn on Track Changes, Acrolinx highlights issues in tracked changes. But Acrolinx ignores content that's tracked for deletion.

Although Acrolinx can read content from variables in your documents, this information can't be edited by design. So, although you can see issues for variables, you can't act on them via the Sidebar. Cards for variables become grayed out when you click on them.

Sometimes, Acrolinx will highlight 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.
