Re: [IGNORE Solved in 2021] TextMaker still misinterprets white-space between tags.

@SuperTech and all. I have tried for half an hour, to reproduce the behavior which I had originally described in the German speaking forum AND CAN NO MORE. Ergo. It looks like The original bug is either corrected or cannot be reproduced - which may be the same thing. My example-files in the OP are c...

Re: Several issues in an ODT document

Textmaker invents a style which is not there, encloses the chosen text-portion in style-tags and removes the white-space in the proces... A nice addition to the XML-handling difficulties, which I already described for Office 2018 and here, too: https://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?p=66738#p6673...

[IGNORE Solved in 2021] TextMaker still misinterprets white-space between tags.

I like the 2021 version of SoftMaker Office. This is the test-version S1014.0529. Of course, I am looking into the bugs which I had reported for Office 2018. In the attachments, you find two ODT files, one of which differs in the formatting of content.xml . The result is a false alignment in TextMak...

Re: [Install/Update] Updating desktop themes

We just call a system script to update the icons and refresh the icon cache. This script takes however long it takes. Okay. In this case I have to discuss the issue with other Linux users and experts to see, why there is a difference from installing other packages, native or other. It is evident th...

[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...

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...
