Re: Combining Documents

With picture frames in a document, the copy & paste action has to be performed twice: once in Edit mode for the text and then again once per page in Object mode for the frames (make sure that both documents are in Object mode when you copy and paste frames).

Re: Pasting Text from web does not preserve formatting

Please check if TextMaker is in Object mode when you paste the text. This could answer for the effect that text is inserted like a picture.

Re: TextMaker image position problem

I can confirm this issue. It persists also in the full version (TextMaker 2016) and in the new version TextMaker 2018.
I'm afraid there will be no quick fix for this issue; SoftMaker will have to improve their Word import filter.

Re: Problem of language setting of footnotes SEMI-SOLVED

My problem is that I simply cannot reproduce this issue. 1. In Tools > Options..., tab "Language", German is selected as Default language. 2. I write a document in German. Footnotes in this document get the paragraph style "Footnote text"; in this style the language of the charac...

Well, John, you're really tweaking TextMaker for all it's worth! :) But this also works: Right-click the picture, select "Picture properties...", go to tab "Picture" and click "More...". Then check "Mix with Colour" and choose the colour you want (or define a ...

Re: Is it possible to run both 2016 and 2018 on the same computer?

Basically it is. But there have been bug reports in the German forum that, when opening files by double-clicking from an explorer window or the desktop, sometimes the wrong program version starts. If you start the program first and open files from within the program, there will be no problems.

Re: Paragraph stays white after applying background Color

Do you mean the last line of the paragraph takes the complete width of the column? In this case, go to File > Properties..., tab "View", click the "Compatibilty..." button and check "Do not justify lines that end with a soft return". Does this help?

Re: Paragraph stays white after applying background Color

Select a heading with the mouse, cut it out (Ctrl+X), then go to Object > New Text Frame, draw the frame with the mouse and insert the heading (Ctrl+V). To move a text frame, first click the border of the box so it is shown in blue. Text boxes may be moved around using the mouse but it is much preci...

Re: Paragraph stays white after applying background Color

First option will be to have a look at the paragraph format (Format > Paragraph...). In tab "Paragraph" you can fine-tune the position of lines. For the horizontal position there are the left and right indents, for the vertical position I always recommend to set "Line spacing" to...

Re: Paragraph stays white after applying background Color

Hi John,

happy it did work! Are you talking about lines of text or lines as graphics?

Cheers

Re: reaction to new interface

Personally, I stopped using MS Word long ago and I love to work with graphics in TextMaker. What are, in your opinion, the advantages of MS Word over TextMaker regarding graphics?
