Re: How do I change from writing in one column to writing in multiple columns (and revert back to one)?

What I have discovered with this exercise, is that after having found help on some topic using the Help function, you might have to page forward using the "Next" button a number of times to find the information you actually need. I attach a pdf showing the information I needed coming up after I clic...

Re: How do I align and hyphenate selected text (e.g. aligned to the left, also hypenated)?

Thanks! I'll try this as soon as I return to my computer. What I wanted to do, was to type justified and hyphenated text into three newspaper-type columns, but type left aligned and non-hyphenated text outside (above) the section with three columns. I should be able to do this now.

I'm not at my computer right now but I think you are partly mistaken ... will return with the evidence or offer my apologies, if I'm wrong.

How do I align and hyphenate selected text (e.g. aligned to the left, also hypenated)?

I would like to select a certain part of a document and then apply an alignment setting, for instance aligned to the left. At the same time, I would like to hyphenate the same text selection, or remove hyphenation from it, leaving the hyphenation setting made under Tools > Options > Language untouch...

Re: How do I change from writing in one column to writing in multiple columns (and revert back to one)?

The method given in the User Manual (not so much the Help function) is really simple and effective, thanks again!

How do I change from writing in one column to writing in multiple columns (and revert back to one)?

How do I type a few lines of text filling a page with only one column (i.e. a page without multiple columns) and then start typing in three columns, perhaps halfway down the page -- continuing these three columns on the next page? And how do I revert back to one column on say the third page? What ar...

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...
