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.

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...

Licensing question

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

I might have to make one. Not to worry.

It's still a great piece of software!

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.

Re: Please extend cloud integration to all Office versions

By the same token, I have to say please don't!

I like having my files on devices I own. Convenience is great, but I prefer the knowledge that I am responsible for the files on my computer. All the big cloud providers have lost data in the past, and the end users have no comeback.

Data entry forms for the database

Hello I'm enjoying exploring Textmaker. IMO, it's much better than the competition. I'm just curious, though. Is there any way of making a slightly friendlier form for entering data into the database? I have a form I enter text into. Is it possible to copy some of the fields from it to create a new ...

Deregistering old computer

I'm going to become a subscriber. You have a great product, and I have to work on Windows machines as well as Linux ones. I need to ask a question though. If I've installed Softmaker on five computers but then have to replace one, can I remove the product from the dead computer and install it on a f...

Are there any discounts/special offers for upgrading to paid Office?

Hello everyone. I hope this doesn't sound insulting to you, the developers. You have a great product, but I need the full version for mail merge. But I'm on quite a low income at the minute! Is there any sort of special offer on the horizon? I understand you have done this in the past. I'd love it i...
