Re: Please extend cloud integration to all Office versions

By the same token, I have to say please don't ! Me too. We should have a [please don't] -button on this kind of thread. While anybody's self- inflicted mischief should not prevent nor advocate any new functionality which addresses only a limited number of users, the consequences are felt my many mo...

In the event that an update breaks something (like composite key usage), it's essential that users be able to downgrade.
In the old days and probably on a different planet, you used to keep the old version available, yourself.

Re: Can't delete paragraph styles....

Thanks Jossi, good thought but unfortunately doesn't make a difference. Opening a blank document, one would expect to see that no styles are in use, but that isn't the case. Wrong . Opening a blank document opens a document using the styles either of the template that you chose explicitly or the st...

Re: No footnotes

Are you in the right forum ? This here is the forum for the commercial version SoftMaker Office 2018 and its word processor component TextMaker. I could add a screenshot to the menu-option that inserts footnotes, but do not feel like it. It is the next to last option in the “Insert” menu. If we disc...

Re: Can't delete paragraph styles....

Howdy. This is an easy one . :D You just have to understand the concept of a document template. Not its uses, as you appear to be quite familiar with that, AFAIS. What I mean is this: A document template is just the aggregation of paragraph- and character-styles plus a few other settings which do no...

Re: Linux Softmaker and PDF Editor

I guess you can tell Adobe that there is no use for Adobe Acrobat. The Free viewer is enough :roll: Strong argument, that. Many people have cancer. So it must be good for something. My post, above, was more specific and my irony will sweep yours away, if it must. I have produced more PDF documents ...

Re: Linux Softmaker and PDF Editor

There may be a use for a PDF-Editor. But I do not see it (yet). A PDF-file is the result of a conversion. And even if you scan a document straight into a PDF-file, it is so. So there is an original file and a converted (PDF) Document. If you are the author of the original file, you should modify the...

Re: Pay for software in Linux?

Free Software can never be identified with gratuitous software. Why do you not just look-up some of those licenses on the Web or any definition of free software by one of the organisms and associations involved in their promotion... What you can criticize in SoftMaker's way of commercializing their ...

Re: « state of emergency »

Uninstallation Problems [Was: Installation Problems]

If you cannot find a SofMaker package which is however installed on your system, you are alone. It took me these few days to remember, why my statement in the previous post made me feel uneasy. For a situation, where your usual package manager cannot uninstall a package, you can even then use an al...
