Re: R-click to change font characteristics

@Jossi
It's not for you to decide what is more efficient for me ...

A single r-click then instantly select the colour is what I was looking for.

In fact, I have now uninstalled the software.

Re: R-click to change font characteristics

@ecbritz You do understand, but not completely. My point is doing what is more efficient. If I had endless time and nothing else to do, then the Softmaker way might be fine. When people are busy, the functions that are used often need to be more readily available as it is more efficient. Having used...

Re: Format & template from Windows Explorer

Hello Martin

My question is why ? Why does it create a .tmdx file when I have told it the default it to be .docx ?

Why does it create a .tmdx file when there is NOT a even a .tmtx template (or any other template) in the Softmaker folder ?

Is it in the Registry perhaps ? Or is it hardcoded ... ?

Re: Format & template from Windows Explorer

I just tried removed the 2016 and the 2018 template folders completely from the Softmaker folder, so there were no templates at all ... and in Windows Explorer it still created a .tmdx document ! It must be finding the format to use somewhere. Hopefully it is maintainable ...

Re: Format & template from Windows Explorer

Hi Sven See the default format in Textmaker below It's completely ignored when I create a doc from Windows Explorer. So the question is ... how does Textmaker decide what to use ?

Re: Format & template from Windows Explorer

Hello Sven I guess you are thinking about the font, but really that's less important initially. The important point is that the format must be correct. I've looked around, including in the registry, but couldn't see anything obvious. Can you tell me how Textmaker decides what format to use when I am...

Re: Default folder to save to

Hello Sven
In fact the Textmaker way is ok, especially as it allows me to see and use all my Windows Explorer favourite folders.

Re: R-click to change font characteristics

Thanks Robin That's not slightly different, that's completely different :) I have seen it and tried it, but that's no good for anyone busy ... The reason Word has what it has is that it is a very common requirement and it's far more efficient than the Textmaker alternative. In fact, in Textmaker, to...
