Correcting a Text From Another Application
Antidote Web can also correct a text written in a local application or software other than your browser. Word, PowerPoint and Excel are among the applications that can be integrated with Antidote Web. (See Antidote 11’s compatibility.) By running the corrector from one of these applications, Antidote Web opens in your browser and analyzes your text there. The changes you make there will then automatically apply to the original file.
To integrate Antidote Web, you will need to add the necessary connector using Connectix, by following the steps below.
Go to Antidote Web and click the connector icon in the vertical panel on the left-hand side (1). The window that pops up gives you two options for downloading Connectix (2). Choose the option that corresponds to the operating system of the computer you are using.
Double click on the downloaded file found in the Downloads folder, or wherever else you chose for the download.
- In Windows, a Connectix folder will be created on your desktop. Connectix’s installer is located in this folder. All you need to do is run it.
- On macOS, a disk image with Antidote’s flask will be created. Connectix’s installer is located in this folder. All you need to do is run it.
- On Linux, a bash script will be downloaded. All you need to do is run it.
Connectix lists all available connectors for applications or software installed on your computer. Select those to which you want to integrate Antidote and click Add.
If necessary, follow the instructions to add specific connectors. You can then call Antidote Web directly from your software!
Notes - It is not possible to add connectors on phones and tablets. - Antidote Web does not include Anti-Oops! technology, which is used to automatically check emails before they are sent.
