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...

Re: Smallest amount of RAM for a nicely operating Textmaker

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?

Re: Form letter query

I found out how to do it myself! It's exactly the same as MS Office, although I'd completely forgotten. In case you are wondering: F2 to add a formula The formula is LEFT(FIELDNAME;1) FIELDNAME is the name of the field in your database, and 1 is the number of characters to return. Easy. Thanks for t...

Form letter query

Hello

I am looking to insert the first character from a database field into a Textmaker document, then merging. So if the field contents were "1 Apple", I'd get "1" in the document.
Is this possible?

Thanks. :D

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...
