Adding a Custom Rule

From the corrector

To add a detection on a word based on a personal rule, select a word in the corrector and open the contextual menu (right click). Select Add personal rule.... The customization window opens and Antidote automatically configures the new rule in a list. If you have several lists of personal rules, Antidote will ask you to specify which one to use.

  • When a rule generates a detection, a link See the rule… in the tooltip allows you to review it if necessary.
  • A note is added in the dictionaries on the word that activates the rule.

From the customizations window

To add a detection on a word or a string, open the customization window (Window menu). Once the window is open, you can add as many rules as you want.

Add

First, select the list that you want to add to. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel. Configure your entry as needed.

  • You can also use the Add a rule command in the context menu when you right-click on a rule already in one of your lists.

Duplicate

To use an existing rule as a model for your new entry, select the desired template rule from the list. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel. Finally, edit any information that differs for the new entry.

  • You can also use the Duplicate command in the context (right-click) menu.

Delete

To delete a rule, first select it from the list. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel.

  • You can also use the Delete command in the context (right-click) menu.

Save

Once you have entered all the information relating to your rule, it will be saved in your customizations as soon as you click anywhere else in the right-hand panel. You can then carry on adding or modifying entries or simply close the customizations window to return to your previous window.
