Suggestions for TextMaker

Post by Petar_MK » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:27 pm

So far, so good. The software is stable, no problems at all. I have some suggestions about Textmaker:

1. Is it possible under “Properties > Statistics” to rename “Keystrokes” into “Characters with Spaces” and “Characters” into “Characters without spaces”?
2. Could you add printing “Selected text” in “Print” dialog window?
3. I don’t consider this as a bug, but it would be nice if you can change it: Before converting a picture into a object frame to reposition it freely on the page, I add a caption to it. But, after converting it, caption is not moved together with the picture. Even if I add a new caption to converted picture.

The caption is in a separate text frame. When you group the picture frame and the text frame they can be moved together, but I agree with your suggestion that they should be grouped automatically by default.

Yes, I know that text is in separate text box, but they have to be grouped as in InDesign.

I concur with Item 1. It is a little confusing. A [CR] is technically a keystroke, but those are not counted.

I will refer that suggestion to the product management.
