Re: Thanks to the developers of SoftMaker Office

Despite some bugs, I am generally pleased with SMO on a number of points. 1. It's just so much easier on the eye than MS Office. 2. Workflow is so much easier, especially when it comes to the every day backend elements of adjusting images; stick on page is brilliant and prevents images from moving b...

Re: It runs under WINE in Linux!

=P~ Hi, wine does not need to have Internet separately. I have now ditched all Ubuntu derivatives and Linux OS's that use Systemd. I have been advised that Snap packages have a security issue similar to 'telnet' and 'finger'. Also, systemd is apparently the equivalent of giving your PC a 'barcode' t...

Copy and paste from Inkscape issue

Initially this worked in 2021 but no longer. I have to paste back into GIMP and copy from there slowing down modification of documents for print disabled students.

Re: Unable to use Alt codes?

Many thanks. I will look on line for the codes I need. :D

Update - resolved this as either the bubble did not appear (could be keyboard issue) or text got underlined:

Unable to use Alt codes?

Hi, I prepare a lot of Maths for Braille Transcription - this requires the correct signs to be interpreted by Braille Translation software and I can't get Alt Codes to Work - is this only available for the Windows version of TextMaker 2021 (if at all?) :?:

Re: How to remove basic roman and Times New Roman?

Thanks for responding - beginning to feel like a PICNIC (Problem In Chair Not In Computer! :oops: ) Forgot about setting default for all documents - easy to change in a new document with different font requirements - something that never worked in MS Office - it is so refreshing to use a decent Offi...

How to remove basic roman and Times New Roman?

I found where basic roman is kept in SoftMaker and deleted it. I have tried to hide the font Times New Roman - can't find where this is buried. Even after deleting basic roman, whenever I copy and paste elements from a pdf using Okular it defaults to basic roman font size 10 despite having removed t...

Undo going too far back with single Ctrl+ Z

Today I was converting a PowerPoint into a TextMaker document. I was copying some elements from a pdf that were text based/tables and not images. I had to use LIOS (Linux Intelligent OCR Software) to extract some text that was not from the text book pdf. When I edited earlier elements in the main te...

I was told yes, you can even run 2018 and 2021 at the same time.
Thanks for the reply. I would prefer to delete it as if I have the 2021 in the panel, when I launch it the 2018 also appears and when I check on 'About' it says 2018 and not 2021! :roll:

Re: Still issues with PPT samples

I too have discovered an issue in 2018 and in 2021 beta still exists for Presentations created in PowerPoint do not show all the images - no such issue in LibreOffice - disappointing!

Can I delete SoftMaker 2018?

I recently purchased the Upgrade from 2018 to 2021 - can I safely delete everything 2018 without affecting the 2021 install? Thanks. :D

Re: Copying multiplication sign from symbol set changes

Sussed it - it is because the multiplication sign is in Symbol font - if you copy into Arial document it puts that font's equivalent Alt Code symbol there. :D Your post gave me the answer, plus I have been working on more Maths today within a document created by myself and if you create anything fro...

Copying multiplication sign from symbol set changes

... when copying within Presentation or copying across to TextMaker inserts an inflection instead:
