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: Searching for text inside TMDX files

I put a little typo into my example above. Please find it corrected below:

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...

Searching for text inside TMDX files

Hello
Is there a way to search for specific strings of text inside Textmaker files in my home directory?
I can save them as .rtf files, and do a search with grep, but it can't "see" into .tmdx files.

Can't start any of my Softmaker products on Debian

It was working until a couple of days ago. But now, whenever I open Textmaker or Planmaker, all I get is a window like the one below.
I tried to start Textmaker with the -debug argument, I attach ~/SoftMaker/Settings/tmlog.txt
Any assistance greatly appreciated. I need this for work in the morning!

Transferring license

Hello I have a single license of Office 2018 for my main work PC which is shared by several members of staff in the office. Unfortunately, it had a catastrophic hard drive failure and I need to reinstall everything. Can I just put the same license number in again when it's time to reinstall? Does it...

Oh, small world! Yes, it is me on the BL forums. A silly joke from when Linux was easier to get wrong, but it made me smile. :D

Re: Smallest amount of RAM for a nicely operating Textmaker

I was thinking that one would have been in touch.
It would be a bit of fiddling to recomission the computer. I have no idea what OS is on there at the minute.
I will install it on a virtual machine and report back. Thank you!

Smallest amount of RAM for a nicely operating Textmaker

Hello

I have a project where I will be working away from the office.
I need a computer I can carry with me. I have an old netbook, but it's not very powerful. 900Mhz (single core!) processor, 512MB Ram.
Will Textmaker work on it, or is it too old?
