How do I install softmaker-hunspell-afrikaans.sox?

I would like to install the hunspell dictionary softmaker-hunspell-afrikaans.sox again but have forgotten how to do that. I have Softmaker 2018 installed. If I click on the file softmaker-hunspell-afrikaans.sox it does not interact with Softmaker. There must be a special way of installing the dictio...

Re: How do I get my old Textmaker 2017 interface back?

Yes, I am aware of that but I mistook one of the 2018 interface options for the traditional interface, and then discovered that I had forgotten how to undo my choice. We have bought various Softmaker versions and also FlexiPDF in our household and we are all very happy with it. I have no objection t...

How do I get my old Textmaker 2017 interface back?

I installed Softmaker 2018 on a new computer today and discovered that I could not use it because I had forgotten how to change the interface back to the old interface I know so well and use with such ease on different computers. I can't even find the "help" button. Kindly tell me how to return to t...

Re: How do I retain non-textual images when editing a pdf in OCR mode?

Thanks, I'll try that. I have to say that its not easy to get the hang of FlexiPDF, but I suspect that other PDF editors are equally challenging. In the case of paper forms that have to be filled in, I simply scan them and then use the text tool of a photo editor to fill them (the scans) in. I then ...

Re: How do I retain non-textual images when editing a pdf in OCR mode?

Let me try to put my problem in a simpler way. Suppose you receive a form, a paper form, blank in the sense that it has not been filled in yet. You want a digital copy of this blank form, for later use, and you also want to fill the form in digitally, so you can return it to the sender by email. The...

How do I retain non-textual images when editing a pdf in OCR mode?

I bought FlexiPDF 2017 when it was released but discarded the program because I could not fully understand and get the better of it. I would like to give the latest, best (professional) version of FlexiPDF another try. Please give me the steps for editing a pdf created in the following manner: (1) A...

Re: Command button to open a translation website

Thanks for responding! I have the standard version of Softmaker 2018 so unfortunately I can't check whether Berlitz gives the gender of nouns in languages where the gender has an effect on the conjugation of other parts of speech in a sentence. I hope to receive more advice on translation websites, ...

Command button to open a translation website

In a posting in 2017 I asked about finding a command button for a website regularly used while writing documents with Textmaker, such as Google Translate. It turned out that Google provides a solution. The method has changed slightly due to Google updates. Search and find the translation website wit...

How do I compile a document with some portrait and some landscape pages?

I was sent a document with the first few pages in portrait orientation and the following pages in landscape orientation. The document was produced with MS Word. How do I compile such a document with Textmaker? What do I do when the page orientation needs to change from portrait to landscape?

How do I type vertically in table cells?

I recently had to edit a table in a document produced with MS Word. The table had text aligned vertically in some of its cells. There seemed to be no problem editing these vertically aligned words, using Textmaker 2018. This suggests that it should be possible to align text vertically at the outset,...

Re: Planmaker 2016 & 2018 wrongly reformat a long number

Thanks for the support. Starting with an apostrophy when entering a long number - to avoid the automatic reformatting of the number - is something I simply did not know, being new to spreadsheets. The problem and its solution apply to both Planmaker 2016 and 2018, so I was not sure in which section ...
