Extension modules (plugins) are typically created by third-party developers and are intended to add additional features to the text editor.

To use an extension, do the following:

1.Get an extension file with the .mox extension from the developer.

2.Install the extension.

3.Run the extension using the Command menu of MyOffice Text.

Install an extension

The extension file can be located in any folder on your computer.

To select an extension file to install, follow these steps:

1.In the Command menu, select Extensions > Extension manager.

2.In the Extension manager window, click Install / Install Extension.

3.In the file manager window, select the extension file.

The Install Extension window opens.

If the selected extension is invalid, a corresponding message is displayed in the Install Extension window. For example, “This extension is unsafe because it does not have a valid certificate.” To view detailed information about the error or developer certificate, click Show Details.

When you are working in Linux, a invalid extension can be installed in the same way as a valid extension.

We strongly recommend that you do not install extensions from an unverified developer or extensions with an invalid certificate. Installing such extensions may damage your computer.

You cannot install an invalid extension when working in Windows. Click Select Another to select a different extension to install.

If the selected extension is valid, the Install Extension window displays the following message: “This extension is ready to be installed. Do you want to continue?” Click Continue.

In the License Agreement window, please read the text of the License Agreement carefully. If you agree to the terms of use of the software as set forth in this document, click Accept.

The Extension manager window will display the extension line. To view detailed information about an installed extension, click Details in its line.

Upon successful installation, the “Installed” status is displayed in the extension line. To launch the extension, follow the steps described in the section below.

Run an extension

After the extension has been successfully installed, a command to run the extension is added to the Extensions Command menu section.

To run the extension, in the Command menu, select Extensions > Extension Name > Command to run the extension.

Automatic disabling of extensions

In Linux, all extensions from unverified developers and extensions with invalid certificates are automatically disabled when you update MyOffice desktop editors. If you trust the source from which these extensions are obtained, enable them manually as described below.

In Windows, invalid extensions are automatically disabled when you update MyOffice desktop editors, and every time you open MyOffice Text and MyOffice Spreadsheet applications. You cannot enable such extensions.

If a valid extension was disabled while working in Windows and is no longer valid during the current application session, when you try to enable it:

A dialog box opens with a detailed description of the reason why the extension cannot be enabled.

The enable button is disabled.

A brief description of the reason why the extension cannot be enabled is displayed in the extension line.

This version of the application does not check for enabled extensions at launch. If the application has installed and enabled extensions that ceased to be valid after the application was launched, such extensions are not disabled and can be run.
