Re: Is Raspberry Pi/ ARM based computer support likely?

Of course, Martin. No shortage of x86 machines, and I'm delighted that you still support Linux. Thanks for the reply.

Is Raspberry Pi/ ARM based computer support likely?

Hello I use an ancient PC with Debian happily with Softmaker. I simply don't need more for my business. But I like to think about the future! When my current machine gives up, I'd love to start using a Raspberry Pi. I can get everything working, but I'm stuck with LibreOffice. It would be great if y...

Referring to numbers in lists - is this possible?

Hello At work, I have to draft reasonably complex legal documents. They take the form of numbered lists, although most of them are written from templates. It would save me a lot of headaches if I could insert fields that referred to the numbers of other list items. For example, I would like to be ab...

Is there ever likely to be a Linux version?

Hello Firstly, congratulations on the new product. I've not tried it yet but it has some features I've been looking for for a long time. However, I'd like to know if there is ever likely to be a Linux version. When Windows 7 goes out of support next year, I'd like to migrate us away from Windows alt...

Paragraph line spacing

Hello At work, I need to write a legal document which has very specific formatting. I can make a good copy with Textmaker, but it would be really useful if I could do the following two things without fiddling with font size and paragraph spacing. The final paragraph of the document must have at leas...

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...

I'd then like to write a script which generates a file based on the attached template "Data to here please.tmvx" wi...

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.
