Inserting pictures

Postby Bryonie » Wed May 31, 2017 2:34 pm

Hi. I'm using Textmaker for Android. I want to insert pictures. When I go to do that the pictures don't show (They show as an icon instead of the picture itself) so I don't know which file is which. Am I missing something here?
Thanks
Bryonie

I tested it with TextMaker HD rev.765 (Playstore version) on a Nexus 10 tablet with Android 5.1.1:
1. Open TextMaker with a blank, new sheet
2. Invoke Object=>New Picture
3. Select an image (I took an .jpg image I took with the device camera from the DCIM/Camera folder)
=> I can see the image in the new TextMaker sheet (not only as an icon).

Thanks for your reply. Are you saying that you can see the pictures as pictures when you're choosing them?

Can someone suggest a reason why I can't see which picture I'm selecting until it's on the sheet? I can on my computer, just not on my phone or my father's tablet.

Do you mean that you cannot see a preview of the picture in the Object=>New picture menu? You do not see the picture but the file name.

Hi Sven. Sorry for delay - I'm travelling and trying to sort this for someone I'm visiting while I'm there. I see icons instead of the pictures. On a number of different devices :( Would sending a screenshot help?
Thanks

In your file explorer the .jpg files are associated with TextMaker. You should try to change the file type association of the .jpg files to another app in the file explorer settings.

Hi. Thanks for your help so far.

Are you thinking in terms of the pc version or the android version? I have tried the trial android version on 3 different android devices and the paid for version through my play account on 2 android devices and they all do the same thing - none of them show the pictures in the file explorer when I pick object/new picture and go through the file tree to the folder they're in.

I've tried changing the default file association to gallery instead of textmaker, however that doesn't seem to change anything.

I've just discovered that if I pick object/new picture from gallery they show up, however that's cumbersome as they're all mixed up together with other stuff and some of the photos are quite a long time ago.

I am sure I've used textmaker on my Android device as well as my laptop and I've never had this happen (I could be misremembering, but i feel confident)

I'm really sorry to be such a bother, but as Textmaker is so superior in absolutely every other way I really want to make this work.

Does that also happen if you use another file explorer like Astro file explorer or ES file explorer?

I am using ES file explorer - well, it's installed but I think textmaker is going to the native file explorer. How do i change that?

Sorry, I was wrong. The File=>Open and File=>Save as dialog in our apps cannot show previews of the pictures.
