Hello Would it be possible to write a script that would let me: Copy a complete section of an existing document (which is hidden text) Paste it into a new, blank document without formatting , that is analogous to Edit>Paste special>Unformatted text. The document I'd like to print to is a template I'...

Re: Can I create a new Textmaker document containing the fields from a table?

It's quite a complicated form. I think it might be a bit clunky to just enter the fields into a database.

I can see myself having to write something in Python to do this job. Thanks anyway. :D

Templates question

Hello

I'd havea template that has a text box which users can fill in. When they save the file, it would be excellent if the file name was the contents of the textbox.

Is this possible?

Re: OneNote alternative planned?

I've had great success with Zim desktop Wiki. It wants for nothing compared to OneNote for my use. And the files are plain text, so I can open them in anything. I've never really forgiven Microsoft for the time I spent years writing a database in Access 2000 that can't be opened by any software afte...

Can I create a new Textmaker document containing the fields from a table?

Hello I have a document. It's basically a form made up entirely from tables. What I'd like to do is take the contents of one or more cells in a table and pass them to a new document so I could have an entry on my form in a new document. I can do this to different sections in a document in plain Text...

Re: 32 bit or 64 bit? any difference?

Basicmaker works on 32 bit. It doesn't on 64 bit. I might switch if it is ever finished.

Re: 32 bit or 64 bit? any difference?

Better, actually!

I find the 32 bit Windows version far more reliable.

Re: Conditional text fields

Yes, Jossi. Thank you! I am talking about fields in tables in TextMaker. What I'd like to do specifically is have a string of text in a document that is displayed along with the contents of the cell if there is some text in the field. For example, if the cell in my table contained no text, the resul...

Hi I am licensed user of FlexiPDF 2017. It's a great product and I like it. However, it isn't available for Linux. I currently only have it installed on one machine, but my license allows three installs. Am I allowed to install one copy to use it on a virtual machine? The VM would not be used on any...

Default format for files

Hi

Is it possible to make Textmaker choose RTF as its default file format when saving new documents? I have years worth of RTF files, and I like the consistency.

Thanks!

Re: Data entry forms for the database

My database has quite a lot of fields, which are not laid out in a particularly easy to read way with the names of the actual database (which are themselves quite hard to read.

What I'd like to do is create a form to enter data.
