Re: "Hamburger Menu" disappeared: How should I radically uninstall/reinstall Softmaker 2018 to get it back?

If I remember correctly, menu settings are stored in the file "tmw18tools.dat". As a first try, you could move this file out of the "Settings" folder. If this doesn't work, a systematic proceeding would be: first to move all content out of "Settings" and then replace the files one by one again to fi...

Re: "Hamburger Menu" disappeared: How should I radically uninstall/reinstall Softmaker 2018 to get it back?

Did you have a look at C:\Users\<My username>\MyDocuments\Softmaker\? By default, this folder should contain a subfolder "Settings" with all individual settings. If you rename this subfolder and restart the program, SoftMaker Office should return to its default settings and it shouldn't even be nece...

Re: Saving as .docx with TM 2016 and saving as .docx with TM 2018. What is the difference?

Where do I find the "Compatibility Assistant" touted in the Softmaker blog? I have been searching the TM 2018 menu's for the Compatibility Assistant, but no luck. With this assistant one can make quite sure that all of your files will by compatible with MS Office. It's quite well hidden: File > Pro...

Re: How do I set the position of tab stops in my default template?

Open the template, invoke Format > Paragraph Style..., choose "Normal" and click "Edit..." (or select "Normal" in the Paragraph style list in the sidebar and click "Edit..." there). In tab "Tabs", set "Default width" to 1 cm and click "OK". After saving the template, new documents will have a standa...

Re: Saving as .docx with TM 2016 and saving as .docx with TM 2018. What is the difference?

Just to make it quite clear for the slow ones (like me :wink: ): When I save as *.tmdx, I get a *.docx supporting the (few) additional features only TextMaker has. So, if I'm sure my document will stay within the SoftMaker realm, I'm better off with *.tmdx. Otherwise, *.docx is the format of choice....

Re: R-click to change font characteristics

You are used to change font characteristics via the right-click (context) menu and want to have this feature in TextMaker, too. This is understandable and a legitimate wish. But, as ecbritz already pointed out, this way is not more efficient than the TextMaker way. It's select text - right-click - c...

Re: font substitution

There is no way to change a font before you open a document, but the Search-and-Replace function in TextMaker allows to search for fonts and replace them. Just click the "Format..." button in the Replace dialogue box (it gives access to all character style options), then use "Replace all". Of course...

Re: General impression

Have a look at View > Toolbars... in the classic interface. At the bottom of the dialogue box, there is a field "Position" which gives you all options. You can move every toolbar to the left or right side of the screen.

Re: Paragraph spacings in .docx files

I have only TextMaker for Windows here, but I presume it will be the same for Linux:
To improve MS Word compatibility, go to File > Properties..., tab "View" and Click the "Compatibility..." button.
When you check "Combine space before and after paragraphs", this issue should be resolved.

Re: Useability

You may also want to explore the options in object properties of pictures. There is a lot you can do with pictures in TextMaker, especially if you insert them as object frames, not as embedded objects.
