Re: Sending a fax with Textmaker

Thanks. I went to Windows Fax & Scan and discovered that I need a modem. This probably involves filling my laptop bag with another, additional gadget. So I'm going to give this a miss.

Sending a fax with Textmaker

When you do File > Send > Fax with Windows 10 as operating system, should the contents of the file, including graphics, arrive as a fax at the fax number entered - without having a fax modem or Thunderbird software installed?

Re: Hebrew, the Masoretic signs

I do not know Hebrew, very sorry to say because I recently completed a serial with Jewish characters (human characters) and had to study Jewish expressions transcribed into Roman lettering. But have you tried changing the line spacing a bit? The setting is in Format > Paragraph.

Re: Command button to access website (i.e. any online dictionary)

I would like to add that a command button opening any website of your choosing makes it possible to open any multi-language/translation website such as Majstro from your Desktop or Windows Taskbar as well. When you follow the Google Tools route, as described earlier, a ready-made icon for the button...

Re: Command button to access website (SOLVED)

I attach the buttons for writing tools on my Windows 10 taskbar again with the button for opening Google Translate added. This is a wonderful discovery for me because I could not find instructions for creating a command button for opening a website (any website) on browsing the interne -- other than...

Re: Command button to access website (SOLVED)

I found the answer. In Google Chrome, go to the website you want a command button for, e.g. Google Translate. Click on the three dots in the top right hand corner. In the menu that should appear, click on "More Tools". Now click on "Add to desktop" in the context menu appearing o...

Re: Command button to access online dictionary sites

Yes, I believe so, Google Chrome it is. I don't have Edge on my Windows 10 Taskbar. I attach a screenshot of my writing tools in a row. Euroglot, a thesaurus and a dictionary dedicated to one language, a program with special character sets (PopChar), different word processors including WordPerfect, ...

Re: Command button to access online dictionary sites

However, its still a hassle because I have to go through 3 steps, including opening google, before I see the proper google translate interface. What I would love, is a button on my taskbar opening google translate...

If I can get an answer to the following question I will be forever astonished and deeply grateful. I have Euroglot and other dictionary/translation/thesaurus programs dedicated to a certain language. They are available to me on Windows 10 Taskbar. I click on a command button in my Taskbar and the pr...

How do I start numbering pages on the 3rd or 4th page of a document?

If I want to create a document with the cover page, title page, table of contents etc unnumbered, and perhaps the 4th page starting the page numbering with page no. 1, how do I do this?

Re: How do I carry out a sequence of commands with one key-combination?

I managed to assign a key combination applying a certain character style, but it did not stick so I could use it again when I opened a new document, in a new Textmaker session. Is there a way to retain the function created even if the computer is shut down and restarted?

Re: How do I carry out a sequence of commands with one key-combination?

Ok, thanks a lot. I have the matter under control now.

If you could guide me to the solution of my other question, posted under "How do I start numbering with a number other than 1?" I would also be most grateful because I have a huge job and need the answer.

How do I start numbering with a number other than 1?

I am working on about 30 chapters of a book. Each chapter is about 10 pages long, with the specific page, paragraph and character formatting I'm using. The easiest for me to find my way around, at this stage, is to have 30 different documents representing the 30 chapters. Each document contains a he...
