Antidote integrates with your other software in order to support you in your writing process. To do this, it uses connectors adapted to individual software applications. Connectix, a utility software provided with Antidote, adds the connectors into each application. Connectix executes when you install Antidote, and can then be called on when you need it, for example to add or remove a connector in a new software application or to consult the methods for running Antidote from a given software.
Integrating Antidote with your other software
To add connectors to your other software, go to Integration of Antidote with your software (Connectix) in Antidote’s Help menu. You will be guided to the Connectix utility, which will automatically recognize compatible software on your computer and ask if you want to integrate them using the appropriate connectors.
Using Antidote with your other software
For guidance on how to make use of Antidote’s resources from within other software applications, go to Integration of Antidote with your software (Connectix) in Antidote’s Help menu, then choose the Use tab to consult documentation detailing how Antidote interacts with each of your applications. You can also access this documentation directly from the Connectix Agent menu by choosing Using with your other software.
The Connectix Agent
The Connectix Agent oversees integration with your other software applications. It provides a menu with management options for certain aspects of integration, such as the content of the context menu or the Antidote toolbar. In Windows, the Connectix Agent can be found in the notification area, next to the clock. On a Mac, it is in the menu bar. In both platforms, it is represented by a small Antidote flask icon. For more details on the Connectix Agent, go to Integration of Antidote with your software (Connectix) in the Antidote Help menu, then choose the Use tab.
Antidote’s integration compatibilities can change over time and with the evolution of the software applications themselves. To know the array of applications that Antidote can integrate with, go to Integration of Antidote with your software (Connectix) in the Antidote Help menu, then choose the Compatibilities tab.
