Re: links to other softmaker domuments

Thanks for the reply/request for clarification . I was about to get discouraged. To clarify, I am saving text documents as Windows\Word .doc (97-2003) BTW, I have learned that the linkages work fine for web links in SoftMaker 2016, but do not work for links to another document. Both worked fine in 2...

Re: links to other softmaker domuments

Addendum by originator:

I opened the "menu" page imported from Office 2012 and deleted a corrected a link.
When saved, closed and reopened, the "corrected" link was gone.

Internal format for SoftMaker .doc files of XP/2003 type

I was having problems with search engines finding text in SoftMaker generated files saved in *.doc format. (version XP/2003) Viewing the files with an editor, I saw a "00" character between each actual text character. Similar documents created by MS Word 2000 did not produce that format, b...

Re: Identifying Template used for a document

Thanks, but that leads to a couple of follow-up questions. The formatting options from the template show up in the formatting menu bar. Does that imply that that information is stored in the raw document file? Then if I modify the base template, and then go to a document based on an older version of...

Identifying Template used for a document

I am looking for a way to find the template that was used to initiate a document.

This question arises when I receive a document from another person that I need to edit.

Saving from FREE Android to Evernote

I do not see the option on the File Save options to save to Evernote, which would be helpful.
It is mentioned in the Help pages.

hyperlinks to web locations - funny behavior

I am observing recently that the format of hyperlinks are changing from the time they are placed in a document (text or spreadsheet). Example taken from a live document: I copy from the browser and paste the following to a highlighted word or phrase (format/link): https://www.freebsd.org/ If I test ...

autotext/smarttext

Part of my use of Textmaker has aspects of a diary and task management. I have a SmartText entry that expands to "Called and left voice message ...". I leave space to type in the date and time. I would love to find a way to have the date and time automatically precede the message. I'm gues...

I find that I can't use standard search tools (Super Text Search, Windows Search) to search across multiple files to find all occurrences of a word of text. I specifically search for a word I know is there, but it is not found. Am I missing something? Is there a feature in the software that will hel...
