The Connectix Agent

The Antidote Agent is installed in the menu bar. The Agent allows for Antidote’s integration with many applications.


  1. Select the word to be looked up or the text to be corrected.
  2. In the menu bar, click the icon of the Antidote Agent to open its menu.
  3. From the menu, select the desired Antidote resource.

The Agent menu can be used in place of Antidote’s floating menu bar or access via the context menu; it is functionally equivalent to them.

Note — An exclamation mark is superimposed over the icon if the Antidote Agent is no longer functioning. In this case, click on the icon and select the Quit option that appears at the bottom of the menu. To restart the Agent, quit and then relaunch Antidote.
