reduced list.

The criteria to varify
against a reduced list are set in the configuration (see configuration
manual).

On the next loading of the
editor the last setting of Filter Term Database will be preset automatically.

Check index entries

(only Flare)

When you select this check
box, the term attributes in
the MadCap:keyword element
are checked. This is an element that is not normally displayed in the XML
Editor view, but only in the Text Editor view. Since, depending on the use
case, synonyms could often be entered here that are explicitly not
incorrectly used terms at this point, you can exclude this field from the
check with the checkbox. Unlike the other entries in the quick settings, the
selection is saved because there is no separate setting option for this in
the configuration window and the setting can also change depending on the
project.

About termXact

 

Displays the version number and license terms.

 

 

termXact Activation

 

Opens a window in which you can

      
view the entered licence key (with active single
user licence).

      
Enter a new licence key to create a full version
from a demo version.

New
request to license server

If there was no connection to the Internet when the
add-in was started, or a firewall is blocking the connection to the license
server, the license server unreachable status message is displayed. After the
connection problem has been resolved, you can use this button to request the
licence server again.

Displays
the licence status in the top line

The following statuses are possible:

1.      licence is being
checked

2.     demo version – active

3.     demo version – trial
period expired

4.     single user licence –
active

5.     single
user licence – licence server not accessible

Displays
the status of the term data to be checked on the bottom line

The following status messages apply both when you check against a local Excel list and when you check against server-side term data. In both cases, the system automatically checks whether the terminology has changed since the last check.

The following statuses are possible:

1.      Term data up-to-date, i.e. the term data (e.g. from termXplorer)
matches the local term data last used.

2.     Term data updated, i.e. the  term data was changed after the last local
check and the local term data was automatically updated.

3.     Term data only local!, i.e. the server-side term data could not be queried, but
local term data are available for checking. The failed server query may be
due to incorrect or missing entries in the configuration (menu Configuration
=> Terminology File tab => Service data source)

Note: In this case, you may check local term data that
are not current if the server-side term data has been changed since the last
check.

4.     No term data!, i.e. the server-side term data could not be queried and no local
term data are available for checking.
In this case you cannot check the terminology.
