Can TextMaker edit files directly online in Google Drive?

It is now possible to directly edit files stored in Google Drive (e.g. in https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive) using a program stored on your computer. It is only necessary to right-click on the file and select "Open with...". This approach works fine when I select the Word 2007 program that I h...

Re: Terrible display quality

I'm glad I'm not the only one to comment on the poor quality of the display when viewing scanned PDF files. I really hope this problem is addressed ASAP, since as things now stand FlexiPDF 2019 is pretty much useless when it comes to handling such files. The OCR feature MAY work well, but it doesn't...

Terrible display quality

I've just installed FlexiPDF 2019 and brought up a PDF file (attached) that was generated by a Fujitsu ScanSnap document scanner. This PDF file displays fine when viewed with Adobe Acrobat 9.5, but with FlexiPDF 2019 the text is badly broken up and the lines in the table are missing big sections. I ...

Can scanned pages be straightened?

When using a high-speed document scanner the resulting pages are frequently skewed a bit. Before OCR processing - and to improve readability - it would be desirable to deskew those pages. This can be done with Adobe Acrobat, and I'm wondered if this feature has been added to FlexiPDF 2019?

Re: Any way to change AutoShape defaults?

Sven - Many thanks for checking into this problem! I'm looking forward to the 'fix' in a future release. (I'm now using TextMaker 2018 in the commercial version of the product, but I assume that release will be patched at the same time.) - Wayne

Re: Turning off hyphenation?

Richard, Thanks for the info! I resolved the problem by unchecking the "Use automatic hyphenation" option under File > Options > Language in the normal.tmvx template. My original error was in just turning off Hyphenation (in the template) under Home > Paragraph > Text flow. In any case, all is now w...

Re: Turning off hyphenation?

Jossi - many thanks! I'm sorry that I didn't originally notice this option under File>Options>Language. (I was rather expecting to find this choice under File>Options>Edit). In any case, thanks again for your help.

Re: Fit text to cell

I only considered this a "bug" since a particular DOCX file is displayed differently in Textmaker than in Word 2007. Since TextMaker doesn't seem to support the "Fit text to cell", I guess my comments could be considered a request for an enhancement. However, since TextMaker does allow character pit...

Fit text to cell

I've just upgraded from FreeOffice 2018 to TextMaker 2018. Unfortunately, the problem described below still exists in the upgraded program even though it was my understanding that the developers had been made aware of this situation some time ago. Hopefully, the NEXT service pack will solve this pro...

Re: Fit text to cell

Sven,

Unfortunately, the latest service pack does NOT seem to have fixed this "Fit text to cell" problem. Can you check with the developers and make sure they are - hopefully - working on a fix?

Thanks,

Any way to change AutoShape defaults?

Every time I insert an AutoShape item I have to change the line color & thickness along with the fill or transparency settings. To save having to do this all the time I'm wondering if there is any way to change the default setting for AutoShape items? I tried updating the Normal.tmvx template file, ...

Any way to have widow/orphan control ON by default?

Widows and orphans are not generally wanted in any text document. Is there some way in TextMaker to have Widow and Orphan control turned ON by default? Otherwise, it is necessary to select all paragraphs in every document and turn ON that option manually. This a nuisance, particular while composing ...
