Re: Save As - requires extension type

Determine this by going to File | Options | Appearance and finding out if the checkbox "Use system file dialogs" is checked or not. PSE make sure you are running the Linux-version of SoftMaker Office. Otherwise tell us now, how we access to File | Options on the Linux-version of SoftMaker Office. I...

Re: Save As - requires extension type

Sooo, in Microsoft Office, even if you type an extension the system will just include that as part of the file name e.g if Drop-down shows as DOCX but you type type the extension as .TXT then you actually get a file "Filename.TXT.DOCX And you always know (make that: guess), what Docx is meant to be...

Re: General Question for Developers

I notice that the BETA version comes with a time limit. There could be a remark about your findings, but I won't do it. Currently, I've been working with files in (and converting them to) the TMDX format, both to test and to update. The Beta-version of any software cannot be but temporary. Now, the...

Re: Save As - requires extension type

When using the Save As command, despite the the type dropdown showing as .tmdx, it still requires the extension to be input manually. In Microsoft Office when Save As....it automatically takes the extension from the drop down box. There should NOT be a need to always add the extension. (gets error ...

Our own file dialog (File | Options | Appearance | uncheck "Use system file dialogs") lets you hide/show hidden files depending on a setting in File | Options.
Make that Tools|Options|System.

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...

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 ...
