Re: Page break view

And in your opinion, what should be the behavior of a spreadsheet program, when the horizontal size of a page imposes that content be moved to an additional page..? Does it ask for your decision or is the result imposed and, thus, improved by trial and error..? I guess that most open questions could...

Re: Enhancement: Images in HTML / ALT-Text

Just for completion. I notice that my above script fragment cannot be used “as is” and may lead to false results when bereft of context. As it would need too much words to talk about that, to avoid too much off-topic gibberish and for a real “proof of concept”, here is the entire script: #!/bin/bash...

As I return to the forum only today, I had not noticed that you have translated your previous response into English.

Boundless Paise: TMDX/DOCX file-structure

Since I detected it I was not sure if this is a bug or a feature. As it serves me well, I tend to thank SoftMaker that they do not insist on the usual structure of an OOXML document for tmdx or docx, meaning: You can zip together the xml files that you need and can omit all those that you do not nee...

Re: Enhancement: Images in HTML / ALT-Text

This workaround is more an additional argument for the use of the alternate text than a “ solution ”: First, I scrutinize the temporary HTML-file for src attributes, i.e. URLs of images. Then I fetch each one of the referenced pictures, separately, and store it under its original file-name, but in t...

Enhancement: Images in HTML / ALT-Text

Good evening. This applies to SoftMaker Office in general, although I have currently only use for the feature in TextMaker. When I copy&paste fragments of HTML-content from a browser into TextMaker, <img/> is honored in the way that the picture is included in the TextMaker version of the document. T...

Re: doc turns to pdf before I can print

There is a long wait for document to spool to the printer (more than a minute). I have to leave document open after telling it to print or it will not print if I close the window too soon. PSE be more specific, as your latest post does not fit under the topic you have chosen and it does not respond...

Re: Insert > Photo album

I tested it with rev.946.0213 64bit and the Nightly version and the option "Save within document" was set. The problem occurs, when the option is NOT SET .

Confirmed.

This malfunction and the obligation to store images in the document defy the whole purpose of the wizard.

Re: List of bugs at a glance

If you save and open later Meaning: The current font-setting is not taken into consideration, if the original font is different from the one currently set automatically (as a replacement font) by TextMaker? This is a little esoteric. Let's say, I like the replacement font better. How do I save the ...

Re: Clear Text Style Formatting

How do you clear character styles from a block of text? Presumably, to clear paragraph styles, one just applies a different style or chooses "Standard". You define a character style which represents what you consider "cleared", then apply it. Edit: Over 2100 views for this thread? Holy Crap. Are th...

Re: No hidden settings folder
