LONG TEXT fields in Sqlite database maximum size

Hello

I am evaluating whether or not to upgrade from Textmaker 2018.

I appreciate the new database module.

The manual refers to LONGTEXT fields as being several lines. Could you expand on this? What is the longest field I can get in there?

I'd appreciate your input.

Many thanks.

Re: Is it possible to get a direct download?

Too late, I'm afraid. We're no longer using Windows.

Thanks anyway.

Re: Is it possible to get a direct download?

Hey Tony, there is something wrong with the car. Fix it! What it is? I won't tell you. If you have a problem, you need to describe it. Alternatively, point to another post and say "I have exactly the same problem". Then we can help you. That's OK if you are on your own time. We have work to do. We ...

Re: Is it possible to get a direct download?

If you have problems with FlexiPDF, you should report them so that we can investigate and fix them. Perhaps you should properly test your software before you sell licenses for them. Besides, the problems have been reported by other users. Maybe you fixed them. Or maybe you didn't. We depend on PDFs...

I didn't. I have a license key bought through your website.

Re: Is it possible to get a direct download?

Really disappointed with this response. I've paid for a license I can't use. I paid for the last two versions of FlexiPDF. Neither have worked properly. MartinK - we are both small business owners, and as such I actively try to support small enterprises. However when 50% of the products are unusable...

Is it possible to get a direct download?

Hi

I have a license for TextMaker HD. However, I'd like to use it without a Google account.
Is there a direct download?

Thanks.

Re: Conditional text fields

Hi!

Revisiting this question - is it possible to do something similar with textboxes in forms? What I want to do is display some text in a box if a textbox somewhere else in my form is checked.

Exporting smarttext entries

Hello I use Textmaker for work. I use it to draft legal documents. I depend on books of precedents which are extremely time consuming to copy in without SmartText. But Textmaker makes it easy! I set up an entry, type the name and paragraph of the book, and the text jumps in. Is there a way to export...

Feature request - add the ability to search inside .tmdx files to the file manager

Hi We are leaving Windows 7 completely at work when it reaches its end of life next year. Our plan is to use Debian, which we've been using alongside MS for several years now. If we want to search for text inside Textmaker files, we have to use zgrep which I worked out in this post . This is OK, but...

Re: Thinking about the future

I understand your interest to be able to reliably access your documents in the future. But I don't understand why that would be a problem. If you keep using TextMaker or Word, either in the version that you bought or in any future version, you will always be able to open all documents created by pr...

Re: Searching for text inside TMDX files

Good luck. I am sarcastic, if that escaped you. And not that knowledgeable about Linux, it would appear. Fortunately, miguel-c gave me a good starting point. The answer is to use zgrep from zutils . It is not the same zgrep that comes by default in Debian, which is just a shell script and can't do ...

Re: Thinking about the future

Thanks, Martin. Nice response. I don't know what problems you are experiencing with DOCX format. Of course, this format keeps evolving, but all file formats do that. There are tons of variations with DOC format. It's only that people no longer use Word 6.0 whereas there are still Word 2007 users. I ...

Thinking about the future

Hello One of the reasons I switched to Softmaker Office was the shocking experience I had with MS Office 2000. I spent months writing a database that doesn't open in any version of Access after 2003. It was a major headache with our old firm. We used more and more archaic computers, and now have use...
