Feature request: Antidote integration

Post by moineau » Sun May 25, 2014 9:34 am

I recently asked guys from Antidote, a powerful Canadian tool for French writers, integrated with Word, why they couldn't do it for Mellel. This is what they said: "a few years ago, we've contacted Redlex to tell them how to create the API necessary for integration. Redlex has unfortunately not given us any response."

So this is something that would be great, as Antidote is THE tool for style, spelling, grammar, etc. There are several positive reviews of Mellel in French on Apple store, this would be great if you could give us that.

To me it's WAY more important than the Index feature, which you can create easily using "search". Or the ePub export. Or the "book" templates.

Thanks !

Hey Redlex,

I would love an integration of Antidote in Mellel. Antidote is the best french corrector.

This issue has been abandoned ?

Thanks,

Gustave

Kind regards,

I have a similar interest in using ProWritingAid, a grammar and style checker for writing in English, with Mellel. In the case of ProWritingAid, it works as a plugin with Word for Windows but not with Word for MacOS (there is a stand-alone desktop app for MacOS which can open Word and other file types, including Scrivener files).

It would be great to have an API to use third-party tools as plugins within Mellel, but I'd be happy to settle for other applications being able to open Mellel files to work with the contents without making a round-trip to a compatible format (and losing Mellel-specific settings in the process).

Hi Nick and joseph_anton,

Thanks for your help. I know nothing about ProWritingAid, but in french, Antidote is the best word corrector. By far.

Can we have an answer of the team of Mellel about integration of correctors, especially Antidote ?

Kind regards,

Gustave

Antidote is indeed very helpful! Hope the Redlers will work to ease the integration of this software with Mellel.

Antidote integration is on our wishlist for the application, and as with all other items on our backlog we will weigh it in when we are planning our future development priorities. We understand and value the great benefit it will bring to our French-writing users.

Integration with Antidote is extremely important for me too. Without this Mellel cannot be recommended to those who write in French. Notice that the most recent version of Antidote has an English module, which makes the integration even more crucial as Antidote is, in my opinion, now the best tool for working in English too.

Hello,

I know that the integration of Antidote must be a long process.
But is there news on the subject? The developers of Antidote told me to be in touch with Mellel.
That's very good news !! A date has been set for the integration?

Best regards.
