Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

"I am right, you are wrong. A common scenario, these days." Actually I am unsubscribing this thread because you are either staggeringly rude or just plain weird. You wouldn't say that to my face if we met for the first time and were talking about this subject, so why write it down? As I sa...

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

I love the cloud, and I love Chromium and Chrome OS, and I use G-Suite (its unfortunate modern name) for some of my work. It works just great and - if you are an ordinary user - it is free (of monetary charge). You seem to be seeing demons and devils in the cloud - I'm sure that there are unscrupulo...

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

Not sure I understand - are you just saying that you don't like Chrome, or that you don't like any browser, or you don't like software working in the cloud?

Confused.

Re: Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

It does but not terribly well. For one thing it does not resize on the latest Android running with ChromeOS and secondly, scrolling is somewhat strange, you have to click on the document to stop it scrolling as you move the cursor up and down.

Dropbox not accessible from the Open menu

Using TM Professional 767.0623.gs on a Pixel C. When I use the open menu to get to Dropbox, it tells me that I am logged in but when pressing the Dropbox icon, two messages flash up quickly telling me (helpfully) "an error has occurred". It take two clicks to get rid of both messages. So D...

Re: why the limit of three PC's for each licence?

True - but in this day and age I am used now to subscription software (think: Google). I just sign in, and I can use it anywhere. Even Microsoft allows 5 machines per subscription, though personally I don't see why I can't use anywhere I like after signing in. The limit of three doesn't get around t...

why the limit of three PC's for each licence?

I was just wondering? I have a desktop at each of my office, my home and my cottage on the coast. I have a laptop and two Asus 2-in-1's. That adds up to 6 Windows machines. Why would I have to buy two licences just to be able to use Softmaker on one machine at a time? It makes less sense when I can ...

Re: Chromebook Support

I did it on my Chromebook Flip for a while when I had it in developer mode - works like a charm, given that it is still very early days. I still think that a version that worked using Chrome's tabs would be awesome - it makes it so much easier to navigate. I can't imagine that it would be too diffic...

Re: Chromebook Support

In the light of Google IO 2016 I would have thought you wanted to revisit Chromebook support urgently - if you can get Android apps on a Chromebook by the end of this year, as Google promises, think of all those extra customers for your Android product ... plus as the OP said, there isn't that great...

Chrome OS: when is SM going to do a version?

I am using my Chromebooks more and more - a version of SM for Chrome OS would be much appreciated.

Anyone else using this OS?

Re: Chromebook version in the planning?

I absolutely agree. For myself, I am giving up on Android - seen against laptops, is just too stripped down. The fact that you can't have 2+ documents open at the same time for cutting and pasting is a real killer for me. Now Chromebook - they are just getting better and better. Softmaker - you real...

Re: Bug in Track changes mode

I see this more as a feature than as a bug. When I correct a typo inside a word (one or two letters only), it wouldn't make much sense to underline the whole word. What happens if you select the whole word first, before you start typing? Must be a bug - it's not a feature I want anyway. If I were c...
