Install SM 2018 alongside SM 2016 ?

I received SoftMaker's offer for the 2018 edition including the ribbon interface and default save to DOCX format. Before I enter my credit-card details, I have a question: can I install SoftMaker Office for Linux 2018 alongside (not instead of) the 2016 version? And if so, is there anything special ...

That is VERY good news, thank you!

I eagerly await the opportunity to join the new Beta program when it's ready.

FlexiPDF 2017 for Linux BETA subforum - gone?

The last time I visited the SM forum last week, the special subforum for the Beta program for FlexiPDF for Linux was visible. Today it's not visible, even though I am still logged in. Has the Beta subforum been removed, and what does this mean for that Beta program?

Re: Globally replacing straight quotes with smart quotes?

Those are great tips, thank you. And they worked!

Still, as you said, the operation is not as simple as in Word. Not nearly.

Maybe the powers-that-be who read the forum will take the subject of this thread as a "feature request." :)

Globally replacing straight quotes with smart quotes?

I frequently receive documents from writers who did not enable "smart quotes," the result being that the files arrive with straight quotes. In MS Word, fixing this is a simple matter of entering the quote character (' or ") in the Search box and again in the Replace box, then hitting the "Replace Al...

Re: How to UN-select tools?

Thanks for passing the idea on to the developers. I tried clicking on the Text Plus tool, but then when I place the cursor on a word and press the mouse button to select it, all I get is a faint blue rectangle, with the document margins narrowed down to about an inch (please see the screenshot and l...

How to UN-select tools?

I'm trying out the FlexiPDF Basic with a view to replacing Adobe Acrobat with a paid version of FlexiPDF at some point in the future (not in the next 30 days), but I am having some trouble figuring out how the program works. The first question has to do with highlighting text in yellow, a feature th...
