Re: Spell checking

It is very nice to hear from. And on a Sunday. You are the expert here on languages. I thought background spell checking would not be language specific. That all languages could/should have background spell checking. Tools > Check spelling starts at the current cursor position - background spell che...

Re: Adding an image cover into epub

I understand what you are saying and it explains what happened well. BUT... from looking at the forum, he sent you the file in May and (the appearance is) you never answered. I now know you did, but it had appeared you had not. Your answer to me answers what you could do. I understand about confiden...

ods files

ods files from LibreOffice, PlanMaker is not recognizing them. I lose all formatting, numbers, and words. I just get strings of symbols, letters, and numbers. Nothing is readable. I had expected PlanMaker to read LibreOffice/ods "out of the box". LibreOffice is standard Linux. ods is stand...

Re: Spell checking

Mr. Kotulla, thank you for your kind reply. I am impressed with your perseverance. Just so you understand: I am giving up on TextMaker. I am going to move on to Softmaker commercial (providing it works out). I still need to test drive it. With that said, I want TextMaker to work and pull more people...

Re: Spell checking

We are having this discussion over several misspelled words. We are using one, as an example. I had numerous misspellings caught by Thunderbird instead of FreeMaker. I had formatting transfer problems, also. I am presently using LibreOffice. I don't have the problems with spelling or transfer there....

Re: Spell checking

I do not know how the commercial version will work. I only know how FreeOffice works. And it doesn't. My use of FreeOffice says to not trust the commercial version. FreeOffice should encourage me to purchase the commercial version. Just the opposite is happening. FreeOffice tells me the commercial v...

Re: Spell checking

Thank you for your timely reply. It is much appreciated. I guess I was viewing TextMaker in the wrong sense. I was viewing it as a limited edition with features missing, but still a functioning program. "Try it out and, if you like what you see, upgrade to the full featured and functioning comm...

Re: Adding an image cover into epub

On Thur. May 09, 2016, Larkin says he sent the file. There is still no response posted online that I can see. It is 6.5 months!!! Was he just forgotten about? I am interested in the response.

Spell checking

Spell checking isn't catching misspellings. It gave a pass to both icicles and iciles. I used tools - spell check to activate spell checking. I sometimes type articles for my wife for her blog. I copy to Thunderbird and email the article to her. Thunderbird caught the mistake. Spell checking is work...
