The new edition of the most complete writing assistance software comes with an impressive number of improvements that make it even easier to keep your writing healthy. Here are the main new features, followed by a detailed list.


Redesigned Corrector Interface

The corrector showcases your text with a more user-friendly, clean and functional layout. Hide the panels and add shortcuts as you wish, allowing you to focus on the text or get the big picture. 

 

More Accurate and Powerful Correction

The corrector now features a new neural correction engine which adds to the natural intelligence of its computational linguists for more reliable and varied diagnostics. 

New Style Corrections

Add even more punch to your writing thanks to the detection of new types of wordy constructions.

Text Replacement

Tooltips now offer more words and even sentence reformulations, especially in the filters, allowing you to confirm replacements and improve your text in one click.

Customize the Corrector

Add your own rules to Antidote’s corrector to make it your perfect writing companion. Add alerts to words or phrases you want to avoid, and even corrections to replace them with in one click.

Create custom presets and apply them directly to the corrector depending, for example, on the national variety of the recipients or the type of publication.
