Re: Documents are printed by FlexiPDF to .prn, not .pdf

Simply because I am learning FlexiPDF 2019 and seem to be on the wrong track when something does not work. I also notice that some pdfs are converted by FlexiPDF to MS Word documents quite well, others not. This function is more important than the first. The only good (online) program I know that wi...

Re: Documents are printed by FlexiPDF to .prn, not .pdf

How do I create a pdf version of a text file typed with Textmaker using the FlexiPDF printer -- other than employing the failed method outlined in my posting above?

Re: Documents are printed by FlexiPDF to .prn, not .pdf

Thanks for your appreciated advice. I have unfortunately not succeeded in creating a pdf file by printing a Textmaker document with the FlexiPDF printer. Perhaps I don't understand this facility. I am expecting a pdf version of the docx file I would otherwise be saving to appear on my desktop, where...

Please note that I wrote and sent the previous message with my phone. Perhaps the terminology used is not 100%.

Re: Documents are printed by FlexiPDF to .prn, not .pdf

The expression "Convert to PDF" is not a command but the title of an instruction in the Quick User Guide. It is explained here that if you print a document to FlexiPDF, the result will be a pdf, opened for you by the FlexiPDF program. You are told to make sure the FlexiPDF printer driver has been in...

Re: Keyboard input disabled by adjusting template: Textmaker 2021 text window remains blank

This incident showed that "complete erasure" of Softmaker 2021 -- including deletion of the settings stored in the appdata/roaming folder -- might be necessary in some cases where the program won't perform normally. Unless I accidentally switched to Object Mode thus disabling keyboard text input, an...

Documents are printed by FlexiPDF to .prn, not .pdf

When I "Convert to PDF", i.e. print a normal Textmaker document with the FlexiPDF printer, I end up with a .prn file, not a .pdf file as I should, according to the FlexiPDF user guide. Why? How should I "Convert to PDF" using FlexiPDF? I can of course "Export to PDF" with Textmaker. But printing wit...

Re: I was charged $69 for a $30 upgrade

I received an email from your sales team today offering to pay back half of what I paid for the Upgrade Version of Softmaker 2021. Thanks very much, I appreciate this. There seems to be confusion regarding my address. I reside in Kenya with a residency permit as shown in my Softmaker Account. But I ...

Re: Keyboard input disabled by adjusting template: Textmaker 2021 text window remains blank

Thanks very much for your prompt feedback. The only way I could fix the problem of the Textmaker 2021 text window not responding to keyboard input, was by doing the following: 1. I uninstalled Softmaker 2021 deleting every possible remnant of the program I could find, using the program RevoUninstall...

Keyboard input disabled by adjusting template: Textmaker 2021 text window remains blank

I made adjustments to my default Textmaker 2021 template. Afterwards, I could not type text into my text window any longer. The text window remains blank; it does not respond to keyboard input. I tried a "Repair" installation of Softmaker 2021 and also a fresh installation after uninstalling the pro...

Re: How To Change Default Font & Size?

The procedure to change the default font & font size given above does work. But I have taken a look at the advice given by Martin-K earlier on and must admit that his procedure is quicker, thus better.

Re: How To Change Default Font & Size?

Please note that I use the traditional Textmaker interface. So I refer to this interface when I try to explain a Textmaker operation. Not sure if the explanation will be clear to users of the new interface. It might. You can set or change the default font and font size (e.g. Arial 12) used by any pa...

Re: I was charged $69 for a $30 upgrade

I sent an email to sales (at) softmaker.de informing your sales team of the US$69 i was made to pay for my US$30 "Upgrade" version of Softmaker Office 2021. (This was my fourth Softmaker program purchase, so I was entitled to the Upgrade price.) The invoice I received from Softmaker states that I wa...
