When you have a date field in a document or template, it shows the date, but it is still a field which updates automatically. Click on the green "f" inside pointed brackets in your toolbar or type Alt+F9, and the field name will be displayed instead of the date. So everything is o.k. with your template, you have nothing to do to keep the date field.tomos wrote:I want to create a new template - well actually a variation on one of the current templates. Whenever I open a template the date gets automatically filled in - how do I create a template that will fill in the date automatically?
The best way is to create a new template with your business details. It doesn't matter if the original template is opened as a template (*.tmv) or as a document (*.tmd). Just change anything you want, then click "Save as..." and select "Template (*.tmv)" as file type. Then TextMaker saves it as a template into your template directory. Next time you choose "File > New..." it will be there.tomos wrote:I want to be able to choose between my business details or my private details being filled in in the newly-opened template file - is this possible?
As only one database at a time can be connected to a document, it won't work to use it for two simultaneous selections which are independent from each other.tomos wrote:[1a] I have three addresses that I need to use for letters - as far as i can see, I think I can only add two sets of user contact details (Home & Business) - is that correct?
[1b] Alternatively, could I use the database for my third address? That would mean using the database for two sets of details which would both be manually chosen - is that possible?
now that was far too obvious for me to think of... lolJossi wrote:Of course you could simply create three templates, each one containing one of your addresses as fixed text, and choose one of them when you start writing a letter.
