[Install/Update] Updating desktop themes

Why does updating desktop themes take such an enormous time during updates of the Office-suite? Especially when “adding icons” appears to be the only action performed. During an ordinary update (apt update && apt upgrade), SoftMaker Office is the only package which brings the procedure to a downrigh...

Re: Automatic folder creation

You cannot avoid that the Settings-Folder be located in ~/SoftMaker and you cannot make the office-suite look for settings somewhere else Now, what you can do depends a little on the purpose. If you need the Settings-folder in a different place, because *other* software, scripts and the like must us...

Re: Dead key support

@miguel-c Could there be a list of cases that ask for the activation/deactivation of XIM? I still do not know what it does, what it is, and why I am using it, sometimes and sometimes not. And sometimes, when things do not work as expected, it is because I have not activated XIM, sometimes this is no...

Re: Dead key support

What am i doing wrong in Textmaker? Somehow dead keys are not working. I run Textmaker in the Dutch language on Ubuntu 18.04. Everywhere else dead keys are working (i.e. ë by pressing " +e). Good evening. While I do not believe that you are doing anything wrong, the problem does however not concern...

Re: Will there every be a Linux version?

It could be interesting to know in which way the existing PDF-munging tools are not enough for the OP or which additional requirements she/he might have that should be addressed by additional software.

Re: Repo update issue

I'm not clear if just downloading another version of the public key will solve the issue and I haven't found anything online addressing it. Suggestions/recommendations? You did not say much about how you set up your package management system. In consequence, and even if you know it already, I recom...

ANSWER: [XML Scripting] sharedStrings indices instead of content

Answer: Comparing cell-content to given values is better done by extracting strings from sharedStrings.xml first. Number formats are recognized by the 't' attribute (probably for 'type') of a cell-tag. What confuses me is the fact that there is not always a 't' attribute. I will check this with the...

Q: [XML Scripting] sharedStrings indices instead of content

Edit 12/12/2019. Attached find a zip-file with the full program code of a spreadsheet-manipulating Ruby-library in development and two executable files as technology-demonstrators. Documentation is in the sub-directory doc. For the executables to run and the library to be functional, three Ruby-gem...

Re: Feature request - add the ability to search inside .tmdx files to the file manager

Edits 21/10/2019 : Call grep with -n -T for line-numbers. And here is a script which works even where the installed version of grep is too new and does no longer support the '-r' option. It uses html-tidy to beautify the xml-code and searches for text inside paragraph-tags (w:t). This is more an ex...

Re: Feature request - add the ability to search inside .tmdx files to the file manager

The file manager itself must be prepared for that. PCManFM, Thunar and probably others allow to add user-defined commands which will be available from the context-menu (right-click-menu) after a file of a certain type (mostly based on the filename-extension) or a directory are selected. Here is a sc...

Re: A2 format

Saw this only today. Sorry for the belated reaction. If you use images, use high definition images. Just like TextMaker, PlanMaker can handle WMF vector graphics. You can use Inkscape to vectorize bitmap-images and even to export them to WMF. As long as SVG is not supported, WMF is an acceptable “ W...

Second question: Why are encrypted files presented as CDFV2 ? A coincidence ?

Feature-Request: Reload Configuration

Hi. PSE comment on the idea to enable each office program to read its current configuration file (.*config.ini) at any point in time, e.g. after the user has clicked a button or chosen the pertinent menu-option. I would not mind the function to be available as a user-defined shortcut, only. The idea...
