I will refer your suggestions to the product management.

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 »

These French have never made a revolution. They begin to deny the achievements of their most cited. In the meantime, I have understood more, seen other events and places from different angles and can generalize the situation which is, however, unchanged since the first post in this bizarre (I admit...

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...

Re: Cut Copy Paste Keyboard Buttons

Hi, I don't see a way to edit the keyboard functions for SoftMaker TextMaker. I have a keyboard with the media buttons for Cut Copy and Paste. It also has volume buttons, calculator, and many more. All of the buttons work in Linux. With TextMaker, all of the buttons work EXCEPT Cut Copy and Paste. ...

You confuse free and free of cost. But that is not a big problem. Many people do the same. You are the freest of all and do not have to care for any of this.

Re: Installation Problems

So, my question is, how do I properly uninstall both of those applications, so that I can do a CLEAN installation of SoftMaker Office 2018 for Linux? Irrespective of your Linux-distribution, the response depends on how you had installed them in the first place. On a Debian based system, like yours,...

Re: External applications, no browsing feature

- If the fields are blank, we stay with the default program. Where is stored the default program ? Can we at least see which one is used here ? Not sure, if we should ask SoftMaker to take a responsibility which is originally the one of the system administrator or system developer who provides the ...

the instructions that come with the font's order are inadequate
Is there a reason why you do not want to use the standard fonts directories under /usr/share/fonts?

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...
