Re: Adding CSV data file to an existing spreadsheet?

I suspect the first approach of copying the new entries into the "master" worksheet is probably the best approach. Creating a new sheet for every month would make it more difficult to generate reports based on ALL the data... Thanks, Wayne

Adding CSV data file to an existing spreadsheet?

Every month I create a new CSV file containing information on current stock and bond holdings. I would like to add this CSV data to an existing spreadsheet containing many months of data. I'm not sure how to do this, or if it is even possible! I COULD keep a cumulative file containing all the CSV re...

Re: Getting rid of horizontal lines

Solution found! Select the line BELOW the unwanted line and then go the Paragraph > Borders. Select the None option and then click on OK. The line should go away. Wayne

Getting rid of horizontal lines

After opening a file created by an OCR program I'm getting some horizontal lines (some light, some dark) that I just can't delete! The attached sample document shows both types of lines. (This example shows the lines problem in a table cell, but the same problem shows up when no table is involved.) ...

Re: Problem annotating images

After trying a number of different approaches I settled on the method described below which may prove useful to other users. It seem to be the most flexible and is not overly complicated: 1) Enter enough empty lines to hold the new picture (a screen shot in my case). 2) Paste the picture into the ar...

Re: Problem annotating images

I just discovered a minor problem with the solution mentioned above. Once the image + annotation have been converted back to an embedded object there is no way to move or change the annotation is any way - it has become a permanent part of the image.With MS Word the image and annotation keep their s...

Re: Problem annotating images

Grouping the objects and then converting the result back into an embedded object seems to be the best approach in my case. Although it works, it is still more cumbersome than the Microsoft handling of annotations. Thanks for your help - I'll being using your suggested approach when next writing docu...

Problem annotating images

While documenting programs I frequently need to paste screen captures into a TextMaker document. In many cases I'd like to add annotations (rectangular boxes, arrows, etc.) to draw attention to certain areas of the image. This is proving very cumbersome in TextMaker since: 1) If I try to overlay, fo...

Re: Strange message from MS Word when closing TextMaker

I've turned off the Live Preview option under File > Options > Appearance to see if that helps. I suspect that may, indeed, be the cause of this problem. Is there any way to specify what program should be used for doing previews? Thanks, Wayne

Re: Strange message from MS Word when closing TextMaker

I was mistaken - the MS Word error messages occurred when I did an Insert > Document where both the original document and the inserted document were produced by TextMaker. There are two error messages generated as shown in the attached image. I've also attached the sminfo.txt file. Hope this helps! ...

Strange message from MS Word when closing TextMaker

Folks, When exiting from TextMaker I seem to frequently get an error message from Microsoft Word as shown in the attached image. This seems very odd since MS Word isn't running at the time the message appears! The error message (and one following) go away after I click on OK and everything seems to ...

Re: Pasted text is grayed out

I'm not sure what it is in my "problem" document that is causing the text to be grayed out, but fortunately the Paste unformatted text option prevents the problem! Many thanks, Wayne

Pasted text is grayed out

I'm not sure if this is a new problem, but when I copy text from (for example) Yahoo Mail or Gmail and paste it into some TextMaker documents the result is grayed out text as shown in the attached screen shot. This problem does not seem to arise if I paste the text into a new TextMaker document, but...

Re: PDF files from scanner are VERY large

Thanks for confirming this problem! It does seem there is something wrong with the communications between VueScan and FlexiPDF 2019. Interestingly, though, this problem seems limited to FlexiPDF: if I use Adobe Acrobat or NAPS2 with VueScan's TWAIN driver I don't seem to have a problem. I'll probabl...

Re: PDF files from scanner are VERY large

That option does reduce the size considerably, but that reduction seems to be caused by lowering the resolution to 72dpi. The resulting text is fuzzy and difficult to read, so that is not an acceptable "workaround". ALSO, for some reason the resulting PDF is inverted: the background is black and the...
