Step-through mode with Contribute - Cloud

Navigate Author

Step-through mode is used to check each flag in a topic in sequence, without having to right-click on individual flags to display the shortcut menu. When Step-through mode is on the button is highlighted and the shortcut menu is displayed at the top of the Topic Editor pane near the <acrolinx> Toolbar.

By default, when you log in to Contribute, <acrolinx>'s Step-through mode is not enabled. The option must be enabled (click the button in the toolbar) in Contribute's Editor before it can be used.

Step through

Select the Step-through button on the <acrolinx> Toolbar to enable the mode.

  2. Click the Step-through Mode botton on the <acrolinx> Toolbar to activate the checking mode if it is disabled (the button is highlighted when the mode is enabled).
