Mac Keyboard Accented Characters

Will there be the facility to enter accented characters by holding down, say, the 'E' key and have the Mac 'pop-up' with various accented 'E/e' character's appear? If not please may I suggest this as a feature request. Thank you.

Right Click Menu

Are there plans to implement a Microsoft Office style 'right-click' menu in which you are able to perform several functions on highlighted text, such as roman to italic etc? If not, may I make this post a request for that facility to be considered.

Print preview 'breaks' when using mouse scroll

Hi, When pre-viewing a document, if you scroll in the window with the Magic Mouse the preview changes to a sort of full screen scenario and defeats the purpose of a preview. It happens in previous versions too. Using the left-click-drag on the scroll bar gives the expected effect. It does not do thi...

Re: Request

Ok. The MAC has the ability to read text by invoking the speech function. You can select text to read or it will read all the text if you don't select any. In Textmaker, the only thing that Speech will read is the file name in the current tab - e.g. 'Untitled1'. In other programs - Libre Office etc....

Request

Would it be possible to have the text read as per Libre Office and other Apple applications. I use this function a lot in MS Word (Windows) and it would be great to have it in Textmaker on my Mac, which I prefer working on.
Thanks.

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.
