Re: Softmaker very slow to save documents

Yes, considerably longer. Also Presentations for Windows can only delete one slide at a time, which is a hassle.

Softmaker very slow to save documents

I'm using SM Presentations on a Linux computer at home and a MS laptop at work. I find the Linux version is better, but I wonder if MS doesn't like coping with files created or modified on another platform. I find any effort to modify the file on the MS laptop is limited by the horrible time it take...

Re: Academic Licence for SM 2018

I've been using SM since 2003. I've generally used the academic licence, as I was a student and now I'm a teacher. I'm sure originally the licence was discounted, now it's free. I'm happy to pay, but would prefer to get the academic price, and would be a bit annoyed if I bought it at full price only...

Re: Academic Licence for SM 2018

It's not quite as easy as that, as keyboard shortcuts and templates don't transfer across seamlessly. Also I installed SM2018 onto a new machine, so I've never installed SM2016 on it.

Re: Academic Licence for SM 2018

I'm happy with SM2016, but I installed SM2018 for Linux for the Beta. It'd be a pain to revert to SM2016.

Table fill colour problems

Attached is a file that is not working between versions of SM. I'm using SM2018 Linux at home and SM2016 Win at work. The colours for shading are wonky with SM Linux now (for background colour), so I've changed the foreground. However, it doesn't display properly in SM Win (or vice versa).

Academic Licence for SM 2018

Do you have plans to offer SM2018 free to teachers and students? I've been using the Beta and now the free trial, but I'm not sure if you're going to offer the product free (or discounted) to academics.

Re: Cannot Open Dropbox

Any plans to address this in an update? SM no use to me without Dropbox.

Re: Opening files from cloud storage app Tresorit

I like the suggestion of being able to hide cloud storage that you don't use. I'd also like to see Copy.com supported, as it runs well on Linux systems (it has an ARM version that is very useful for me).

Re: Connecting to Dropbox

Well, I'm connected, so no; but it wasn't easy, so I've let you know. It may just be my system. However, it was different from connecting with the beta version, which is odd.

Re: Connecting to Dropbox

I've done it. It was incredibly slow and seemed to suck up memory. A cut and pasted password was forgotten before the screen appeared. I had to type my password manually reading it from my phone (I use LastPass). I've not had to do this before.

Re: Connecting to Dropbox

I've tried rebooting, uninstalling the other SM apps, even reinstalling, but no change.

Re: Connecting to Dropbox

Thanks, I've waited, but nothing. It's an Asus tf201 with Android 4.2.1. Like I said, I didn't have this problem with the beta versions.

Connecting to Dropbox

I've just installed the paid version, and it's not connecting to Dropbox. It just goes to a blank screen. Google Drive wotks, and Dropbox worked on the beta versions fofor me.

Re: Error Saving Files

It's been the same two files. I've not used PM much on the tablet. I tend to work on the same files.
