Re: Linux version still lacking features

"As lgsl has commented, grammar checking is only available in German in the Windows version, as well." One solution would be to make "Prowritingaid" usable in Softmaker Office. I use Prowritingaid in Googledocs with mixed results. On longer documents, it makes the CPU howl. Edit:...

Softmaker still locks up Zypper updates on Tumbleweed

This has been an ongoing issue and a very dangerous one (for system stability). Whenever Zypper "Dup" gets around to updating "for Root" (when updating Softmaker Office) zypper locks up with no option to abort or ignore. Even when killing Zypper, a restart is required. I would re...

Re: Installs, upgrades, downgrades on Opensuse all fail with Segfault

I have an older RPM but it also segfaults. As far as I can tell, as of now SO is pretty much dead in the water as regards Tumbleweed.

Installs, upgrades, downgrades on Opensuse all fail with Segfault

Seems that something has changed in Opensuse. It's no longer possible to install, reinstall, or upgrade Softmaker. They all end with a segfault.

Feedback: Won't be switching to NX Universal

I considered Softmaker's offer, but honestly it strikes me as a bad deal. I currently have a permanent license. Why would I want to convert that license to a subscription? That strikes me as a very bad deal. What the offer suggests is that Softmaker would like to convert *all* permanent licenses, if...

Test Document Issues

Out of curiosity, I downloaded a .docx test document from OnlyOffice, attached. There are some issues. Most notably, Softmaker messes up the Autoshapes and tables. I was surprised to see that both Onlyoffice and Libreoffice, free products, handled this document better than the paid-for Softmaker Off...

MS Word Compatibility Issue - Fillable Worksheet

Just posted this on the Linux thread. Same behaviour. Trying to edit image field fails. Text fields can be edited but not image fields. Same workaround as with Linux. Copying and pasting contents into a new document makes the image field editable. As an aside, I also tried editing this document in M...

MS Word Compatibility Issue - Fillable Worksheet

Attached is a fillable worksheet designed on and for MS Word. It's possible to fill in the text fields but there's apparently a compatibility bug that prevents one from being able to insert an image. A workaround is to copy and paste the contents of the document into a new document. Also: Will test ...

Adding Dollar Signs to Cells in a Table

In Libreoffice, there was a way to format a given cell so that if a number were entered, a dollar sign (or currency indicator) would automatically be added, but wouldn't appear until an amount was entered. Using Softmaker's instruction manual, I can't figure out how to do this in Softmaker...

How to set page number?

So, this should be simple but it's not.

I didn't want a Header on page one. When I use Chapter break to get rid of it, Textmaker insisted on making Page 2, Page 1. What Menu option allows me to change this back to Page 2? :roll:
