"Out of memory"

I am really not happy. I spent a couple of hours updating a rather large spreadsheet whereupon I got an "Out of Memory" error and could not save my work. PlanMaker 2016 for Windows rev 768.1215. I've had other Out of Memory errors in the past few days also but didn't lose as much work. This is unacc...

Old service pack backups

I installed the latest service pack 766 today and created a backup of the prior (763) version. I noticed I have a bunch of older versions backed up... 742, 745, 749, 752, and now 763. I'm sure I don't need ALL of these backups anymore. Do I just delete the folder of the backups I no longer want? And...

Re: Change text size removes underlining

Yes, Sven, as stated in my original post, I'm on TextMaker 2016 for Windows (rev 752.0224). I made a short (40 second) YouTube video showing the problem. https://youtu.be/KylS43kED9Y No audio, sorry. This video shows: 1- Create a new document. 2- Type some stuff. 3- Select and underline some text. 4...

Re: Change text size removes underlining

Yes. The way I change the size is to Select All (ctrl-A) and then use the Formatting toolbar drop down control for the point size. It's so easy to do it that way. I haven't tested this further, to see if it removes other formatting, for example. I use underlining for topic headers and for emphasis. ...

Change text size removes underlining

I searched "underline" and "underlining" and nothing came up on this topic, so maybe no one has raised it before. In the current version of TextMaker 2016 for Windows (rev 752.0224), if I create an ordinary document that contains some underlining, and then I select all the text and change the font s...

Re: Left() and Right() functions not working properly

Given my 30 years relation with spreadsheets my explanation would simple be that these functions are not so widely use. I know myself when I was part of the beta program for MS Excel that my main focus was on "calculation" and not "string manipulation". But I agree, it's very seriously and raise qu...

Re: Left() and Right() functions not working properly

This has been solved by our developers and should work better with the next service pack. Sven, thanks for the info. This is for SoftMaker corporate: How long has this been a known problem, and why was there nothing posted about it on this forum until now? When is the new service pack scheduled for...

Re: Left() and Right() functions not working properly

@XL-Dennis, this is a good exposition of the problem. SoftMaker, how in the world did an obvious bug like this escape detection in your quality control process? Three pretty basic spreadsheet functions don't work in a production release? Now I'm wondering what other functions don't work, not just he...

Re: Left() and Right() functions not working properly

@XL-Dennis, I'm not sure what you mean by "when testing with numbers the functions shows the correct numbers". Left(), right(), and mid() are string functions.

Left() and Right() functions not working properly

I installed SO 2016 recently and started working with a spreadsheet I created a couple of years ago with SO 2012 and update regularly. I noticed the left() and right() functions don't work properly. LEFT("abcd",2) returns "a" and LEN(LEFT("abcd",2)) returns 1. RIGHT("abcd",3) returns "bc" and LEN(RI...
