Bug when opening password protected file

Post by rkrasny » Tue Apr 01, 2008 8:41 pm

I have a password protected file that I have stored in office 2003 format on my device storage card. I am using the beta version of TM for WM 2008 downloaded today (4/1) which extended my trial to the end of the month. When I open the doc, TM asks for the pw, then opens the file with a series of error dialogs starting with "Unable to start hyphenation for "german (Germany)", ditto for the Netherlands, Portugal, French - in that order. When I click "OK" for each of these, then the document is opened and TM seems to function normally. I installed TM with only US English support.

Needless to say, there are no multilingual elements in this file, just plain old English.

Thanks for your help.

That's what you think. Word has a (mis-)feature in that it's being able to guess the language of a passage of text. This often fails and it leads to these error messages. Word has the same problem with your file, but it doesn't display an error message - instead, it simply will hyphenate the offending sections wrong.

Do a Ctrl+A, then (in Word) Tools>Language>Set Language>English or (in TextMaker) Format>Character>Language>English, and your troubles go away.

Thanks very much - that was it. Word and its myriad embedded codes and unexplained behaviors never ceases to amaze me. I guess I should be grateful because if Microsoft did their job then you wouldn't have a job.

FYI neither pockert work nor word mobile 6.1 can open a password protected file.
