Re: Can't see images in .DOC files

Thanks for the information. I had never even heard of .EMF files! The file format for the images is not under my control, I will have to ask the author to fix it.

Re: Can't see images in .DOC files

Thank you, I sent sample pages from the file this morning to the address you gave.

Looking forward to hearing back from the SM team.

Re: Can't see images in .DOC files

The .DOC file came to me with the images already in it, so I don't know the format of the images themselves. But I can share sample pages containing images. To what address at SoftMaker should I send the samples? (It has to be a private delivery to SoftMaker for their analysis, I can't simply post t...

Can't see images in .DOC files

I'm working on a manuscript that includes illustrations. I am using TextMaker Professional 2018 (version S978.0905). The trouble is, the images are not showing up. The spaces for them are there, and the text flows around these spaces, but the images themselves are not visible. In some cases, there i...

Re: Dead key support

Huh, this doesn't work for me. When I type ^ and then o, I simply get ^o. XIM is indeed enabled (Tools --> Options --> Use XIM).

Tried this on TM for Linux version 974 a few minutes ago, and then again on 976 after installing the new service pack. I'm on Kubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

Hi miguel-c,

I can confirm that the latest Service Pack fixed the issue with the comments disappearing when saving the .DOCX file in .DOC format.

Thank you very much to yo uand to the softMaker team for taking care of this issue! =D>

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

That's great news! I'm glad that my work may contribute to making TextMaker an even better product than it already is. The issue with opening the .DOCX file is happening on MS Word 2007. I tried it on a Vista and a Windows 7 PC and the same thing happened on both of them. Unfortunately, I don't have...

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

Hi Miguel, Is the email address "forum(at)softmaker.de" a private address? The document is confidential material (a book manuscript in progress), so I would rather not send it somewhere where it could be seen publicly. What I did that made the comments disappear was simply to save the .DOCX file in ...

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

Thanks for the info. It IS remarkable how closely they match, given all the possible hurdles. I don't remember doing anything exotic with the file. That said, unfortunately it looks like the .DOC workaround may not be viable either: I saved the most recent edit as both .DOC and .DOCX, and sent the f...

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

MORE NEW INFO: This seems to be a .DOCX vs. .DOC issue. I saved the problem document as a .DOC file in TM for Linux and it opened fine in Word for Windows.

The file is much larger in .DOC format, but it opened without issue in Word on two different Windows computers.

Re: MS Word claims TM file corrupted

ADDITIONAL INFO: I tried to open in Word an earlier version of the document that was saved in TextMaker 2018 for Windows, and Word gave the same message about corruption in the contents. So it may not be strictly a Linux issue, but rather a TextMaker issue (?).

MS Word claims TM file corrupted

In a trial project for a full transition to Linux, I'm editing a book in TextMaker 2018 Professional for Linux. Both my author and my publisher use MS Word, so I need to make sure that files that I edit in TM will work on Word. Therefore, before sending the edit back to the author for fixes, I move ...

Two suggestions for search-and-replace

I am seriously testing SoftMaker Office Professional 2018 for Linux as part of a transition from Windows to Kubuntu Linux, and there are two functions related to Search and Replace that could stand improvement: 1. When doing a global search-and-replace, once the operation is finished the cursor goes...
