Softmaker hushed in evaluations of MS Office competitors

Out of pure curiosity I recently read some articles on the internet about the current competitors of MS Office. Even respected computer magazines published online seem to hush and ignore Softmaker. I was surprised to see that for instance WordPerfect is mentioned as a worthy challenger -- but often ...

How do I create, open, edit and save files stored at a cloud storage site while using Softmaker Office?

I use Box.com for storing important files. Because I also archive ("file", "conserve") valued files in this way, I don't want to use Box.com for new files I am still writing or editing. Risky comings and goings among exposed archived folders and files are not a good idea. I would like to use another...

Re: How do I make Softmaker's user forum "remember" a new password?

I tried using Edge Browser. I then logged into Softmaker User Forum using the new password. This worked. I was asked by Edge if I wanted to save the new password. I confirmed, and then the new password was finally successfully "remembered" by Softmaker. Next, I uninstalled and then reinstalled Googl...

(Solved) How do I make Softmaker's user forum "remember" a new password?

I received a new password by email. It works but it is not "remembered". I have to enter it every time I want to enter the forum.

Solved: What happened to Thunderbird?

The first thing I did when I bought Softmaker 2016 and later Softmaker 2018, was to uninstall Thunderbird. I had no desire to use this email "client" -- if this is what email service providers are called. Thunderbird probably made it possible to send email directly from Softmaker. Now that Thunderbi...

Re: Difficulty deleting selected text inside previously created and saved text box

Thanks. I tried to work on a pfd received from a school and do not know if the relevant characters were in some text or "editable" box or mode. I solved the problem by simply deleting what I was forced to delete, then replacing what was deleted with the same thing slightly changed. I'll return to th...

Re: I have 2021 on one computer and now can't update 2018 on another computer

I bought Softmaker 2021. After uninstallng Softmaker 2018 from my secondary computer, I could install Softmaker 2021 just fine. I have the original Softmaker 2018 installation file, the relevant activation code, etc. But there is no point in struggling with 2018 rather than simply install the purcha...

Re: I have 2021 on one computer and now can't update 2018 on another computer

I could not reinstall Softmaker 2018, although I kept the original installation code etc. I tried a "repair" installation as well. No luck. But I could install Softmaker 2021 so there is no reason to spend more time on this matter. Thanks for always attending to questions. It creates and maintains g...

Re: I have 2021 on one computer and now can't update 2018 on another computer

Textmaker 2018 (rev 970.0826) 64bit. I have only Windows 10 Security (Windows Defender) running on this machine, not Malwarebytes Pro used on my main computer. No idea whether Defender could be preventing the update.

Solved (kind of): I have 2021 on one computer and now can't update 2018 on another computer

I use Softmaker 2021 on my main computer but still have Softmaker 2018 on another computer. There is a "New Service Pack" available for 2018 but when I try to download it I get the message "Error Calling SoftmakerUpdaterTool.exe". Am I blocked from updating 2018 once I've starting using 2021?

Re: Bug in S1018.0818 version?

Thanks for your advice. It solved my problem although it might be misunderstood by someone following this thread. This is the way I understood you, after giving the matter some thought: The language used in a document does not determine the automatic superscription of "st", "th" & "rd". But if you u...

Bug in S1018.0818 version? (SOLVED)

I attach a new document, written with the new version of Textmaker (TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1018.0818) 64bit), in which the automatic superscription of "th", "rd", "st" etc did not happen. Should I adjust some setting?
