Configuring the Corrector’s Main Window

The Antidote 11 corrector has had a makeover with a simplified and clean presentation. Its multiple powerful tools remain easily accessible and apply to the essential: your text, displayed in the correction panel with generous margins and ample line spacing. The list of detections helps you browse the error diagnoses, which are modulated by the navigation toolbar. Discreet and customizable, this toolbar can even be collapsed so you can focus only on the text. The status bar displays the statistics of your text and manages the language of the text to be displayed and corrected (in a bilingual context).

The navigation toolbar

The navigation toolbar offers the different angles for exploring your text, grouped under several menus. To change the section or filter, click on the desired tab. Don’t waste time visiting empty correction sections: the tab displays a colored dot as soon as it contains a detection.

Add your favorite filters directly to the toolbar as shortcuts by dragging their title to the bar (at the top of the detections list), or by right-clicking in the prism panel. Conversely, you can remove the filters that are less useful to you. On Mac, simply click and drag these filters outside of the navigation toolbar. On Windows, right-click the filter you want to remove and select Remove from shortcuts. Retrieve the initial configuration by right-clicking on the navigation toolbar.

Open the prism panel by clicking on in the left-hand bar to see all the available filters.

The navigation toolbar also presents a shortcut to Linguistic search in the form of a magnifying glass .

The status bar

By default, the status bar displays statistics on your text and correction commands. It also offers a menu that allows you to adjust not only its display, but also the content of the correction panel.


The status bar displays the number of sentences, words and characters in the text. It also indicates the number of detections according to the current filter. On a bilingual text, it also displays the breakdown of the two languages, and clicking on these numbers displays the Languages filter.

The correction commands

Correction commands are an alternative to the tooltip commands for handling a detection. They allow you to navigate to the next or previous detection, apply or ignore a correction, or add a word to a personal dictionary.

The languages and configuration menu

A menu indicated by an ellipsis allows you to adjust the content of the status bar, as well as the content of the correction panel. You can choose which statistics to display, remove correction commands, and decide to display or correct only one language in bilingual text (if you have access to correction for both languages).
