Re: My solved file format issues

See also Sqlite2DBF So SoftMaker-Office lets you save PlanMaker files in dBase-format, and you can use the dBase-files as a data-source for TextMaker documents. sc_dbf_ex_PlanMaker.png As the database can be managed in TextMaker, you can choose one of two ways to add, remove or alter records: ⋅...

SQLite2DBF converter

Good morning. Almost exactly one year ago, I have programmed a conversion tool which converts SQLite database files to DBF (FoxBase/dBase). The resulting files are compatible and can be used as data-sources with SoftMaker Office. I have a question: Does that interest anybody, here :mrgreen: ? Really...

Re: Secure login for forum

Does a forum login really need to be secure? I use other forums (including phpBB forums like this one) which do have a secure login, but I don't see any security issues as long as forum accounts are not linked to customers' online store accounts. If you only see financial risks in the possibility o...

softmaker-freeoffice-2016 depends on libidn11. Appreciate any pointers and/or known workarounds? Pointer , not to a workaround but to the solution : softmaker-freeoffice-2016 depends on libidn11.

Re: Secure login for forum

SoftMaker should be ashamed of themselves. Don't you think that you will run out of language before long; as there are circumstances of profound trepidation, where your statements would also be more pertinent. I am an advocate of encrypted communication channels and would like to keep their discuss...

Re: Can't type any accented char in french

export LANG=sv_SE textmaker16 As long as you do not start your file manager from the same prompt, where you just set the locale, you cannot ensure that it uses the same locale setting. What you show above concerns only textmaker and only the one session that you just started. got the accents workin...

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

Coming back to the original post, I think that the point was that SM is doing nothing about a seismic shift in computing and is sticking with its traditional model of Windows. That is dying - and SM needs to adjust or it will disappear. Many people are using browser based apps. And many more drive ...

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

Not sure I understand - are you just saying that you don't like Chrome, or that you don't like any browser, or you don't like software working in the cloud? The more fuss is made these days about anything declared to be “ Innovation ” the more you can be certain that the box contains a considerable...

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

It does but not terribly well. For one thing it does not resize on the latest Android running with ChromeOS and secondly, scrolling is somewhat strange, you have to click on the document to stop it scrolling as you move the cursor up and down. As I am currently making my n-th bad experience with ye...

Re: Any scripting support on Linux?

Maybe the simplest way to get script support would be by means of an old-fashioned file-interface (export -> modify -> import). When these interfaces where common, XML had not been popular or inexistent (I am not old enough to know). So, nowadays, a little leap back in history could maybe facilitat...

Re: Any scripting support on Linux?

Feels like a big leap back in history.. actually, I think all spreadsheets I have ever used have had scripting support. Though some of them had to make a big leap back in history to allow scripting support. I do not know, what a good scripting engine for SoftMaker Office could look like, because I ...

I need to fetch information from the spreadsheet cells This is possible in different ways. What kind of complication would the export to CSV mean to you and if there is none, what could you use to extract data from a CSV file?
