Could not print landscape?

I have a workbook that is fairly wide that I wanted to print landscape. I set the page format = landscape, set the print area, checked the preview and it looked okay. But every time I printed it, it came out portrait. Is there a bug here or am I missing something to make it print landscape? Also, if...

Next service pack?

How do we know when the next service pack is going to made available? Also, will it be a full install?

I am not installing 2018 until the missing features are added back in, so what is the best way to get the service pack?

Re: SoftMaker FreeOffice 2016 vs 2018?

... and we added a ton of new features as well. Please list specifically what features you really miss, and we'll discuss it here. Off the top of my head: .odt files (something I don't use, but is mentioned here) Format copy/transfer feature (was removed once before and then re-added again after co...

They seem to have removed a lot of features from 2016...who thought that was a good idea?

Re: Feature set reduction from 2016?

I noticed the same thing when I installed the 2018 version...the loss of copy format, reduction of file formats, etc. Why add .docx and remove .doc? I deleted it 5 minutes after installing it. Dropping features that customers are used to is bad business. It will not drive me to license the program, ...

Copy format button missing again?

Did you guys remove the copy format feature again in FreeOffice? I can't believe you would do it again after the complaints last time you did it.

Please advise?

Re: Transfer formatting button

How disappointing of SoftMaker as a company. That is a very disingenuous thing to do - to take a popular feature that was previously available in the free version and then remove it in a newer version. What possible reason could you have for taking away a feature (other than to try to drive revenue ...
