Re: Thanks for your work on the Linux Version | & Feature Req.

Thanks. Glad to hear about SO on Android. Additionally, I appreciate that the Android SO interface looks as full featured as the desktop version, but would love an option to switch to a vastly simplified and uncluttered interface when mainly writing.

Thanks for your work on the Linux Version | & Feature Req.

It's been a while since I've posted here. Just wanted to give a thumbs up for all the improvements made to SO for Linux. Will definitely be investing in your next version. That said, I had to quit using it just over a year ago due to some bugs that have since been sorted out. Since I use multiple de...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

No it didn't. Alas. I upgraded and tested. The behavior is odd. In the latest version, I can still create the following characters, äàá for example. But I can't create an en-dash – or an em-dash — (among other symbols). I can't really say what's going on, but SO-931 (the latest version) obviously in...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

This is great news. :)

Martin, maybe Softmaker should consider a "Known Issues" Document with Linux installations so this sort of issue doesn't get dragged out like this in the future? Just my 2 farthings. Prospective users would certainly appreciate it.

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

...but downgrading immediately fixed the problem. Somewhere and for some reason the newest versions of Softmaker for Linux (will test in windows) are interfering with the compose key. Have you downgraded on the exact same system? Yes. Downgraded on the exact same system: 1. Which distribution exact...

The very same problem is present for (some) users of SM2016: http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=260&t=16658 It persisted in the 2018 Beta version, I reported it here on the forum but it never received a comment from the developers: http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=294&t=17394 This...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

Just this morning I noticed that Softmaker upgraded despite my having locked it in Synaptic. I didn't notice until my compose key stopped working. Before downgrading and disabling the PPA (this time), I did some experimenting. The compose key still functioned, but unpredictably: I could still produc...

Re: Can't delete paragraph styles....

Well, I for my part do....What I don't want to see... is an endless list of all the predefined styles TextMaker makes available, but only the styles I have defined myself. Fair enough. I can see how that would be useful. I think 3. would be sufficient – no need for 1., but this was introduced by yo...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

Hi Martin, I downgraded SO to the version before the current one—in which the compose key still works, so sminfo won't enlighten you. softmaker-office-2018: Installed: 2795 Candidate: 2795 Version table: *** 2795 500 500 http://shop.softmaker.com/repo/apt wheezy/non-free amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/...

Re: Can't delete paragraph styles....

Hmmm.... but why even differentiate between styles like this? Does one really care or need to know if a style is an application style or a document style? And by document style, I assume you mean: "Styles which are stored in a document but not in actual use..." and I'm not even sure I know what you ...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

I did week ago, no response. The customer support for paid customers is terrible. I don't know about that. The forums strike me as more responsive lately. Don't forget that the same moderators are handling two forums --- German and English. They seem like a small(ish) crew and are doing what they c...
