Re: Wide spaces between words in justified text

I don't suppose you can. Once you have used a DTP you realise how limited a word-processor is - you don't have to be a professional to appreciate that. You also understand that word-processors can leave code in the text that is a pain when importing into a DTP. Opening your document in a text editor...

Re: Programs will not open

Try right-clicking on the .exe file and choose 'Run as administrator'. I have had similar problems and this has done the trick - most of the time :)

Re: Wide spaces between words in justified text

I don't know what your purpose for this text is, but I would nuke the entire document in Notepad, or your plain text editor of choice - mine is Notepad++. This will clear any corruption and codes from the previous application and leave you with a clean text file. You can then open/import this into a...

Right-Click menu addition

Hi, As a long term MS Word user I have become used to right-clicking after selecting some text and being able to perform a number actions on that text - such as changing the font size, weight, typeface etc., etc., which appears in a separate box above the usual right-click functions. With that in mi...

Accented characters

Is it possible to enable the selection of accented characters by holding down the character key and have the selection show up as per other programs on a Mac? As I use accented characters a lot this would be great to have. Thanks.

Text to speech

Is there anyway, please, to get the MAC text to speech to work with Textmaker. All I can get it to do is read the file name. Open Office, LIbra Office et-al can all read the text highlighted but not Textmaker. Thanks in advance.

Re: Is it possible to compare two documents with Textmaker 2018?

I see this function was already envisioned seven years ago, three versions of Textmaker ago, by sven-l on Fri Jun 11, 2010: "There's no 'compare' mode in TextMaker, the only method is to open both documents and view them side by side (Windows/Tile vertically). I will open a feature request for such...
