Re: Can't find Keybd shortcuts: SupScpt/SubScpt

Excellent Miguel.
Thank you.
I know how to create macros so WHY ever did I not think of that? !!

Can't find Keybd shortcuts: SupScpt/SubScpt

Just as I did during my several years of banishment to the dark side with M$Word, whilst I could not make TM2016 work at all, I have long-since banished from my TM2018 and TM2021 toolbars such frivolities as Bold, Underline, Save, Undo, Find, Thesaurus etc. This is because, - the keyboard shortcuts ...

Re: Can't exit from completed spellcheck

It has just happened again. See screenshot: Screenshot 2021-01-04 at 14.44.48.png No mayor how much I tried to vanquish it, it would NOT go away until I clicked on something that was not in TextMaker, and then it disappeared. New information: 1. It did not have to be Safari that I clicked on, just s...

Re: Can't exit from completed spellcheck

Are you quite certain that you have to have a copy of my document? I ask because (1) it is a little troublesome to send it, and (2) I do not think it will be useful to you if I do so. This is why: The fault is not reproducible, even to me in the same document, so you won't manage it either. It happe...

Can't exit from completed spellcheck

This has happened a few times. After completing a spellcheck (of a 50 page document, which might not be relevant), I have been unable to close the spellchecker. TM gets stuck in a loop. It displays this dialog/requester, CHECK SPELLING --------------------------- [ ] From current position [ ] Whole ...

Cross-ref to rel.posn. of a caption: not working

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1024.1205) 64bit Add a caption to a graphic, with Fig.no. and caption text. Now try to point to it with a ross ref from elsewhere. Insert crossref to its relative position, selecting the caption from the drop-down list. Instead of inserting 'below', TM inserts the ...

Re: Toolbar icons too faint, hard to see

Well how about changing very slightly one of the two nearly-identical toolbar GUIs, numbers 4 and 6. They seem so alike that I can't see the point in having both of them as they are just now. One of them is redundant. So this is an opportunity for you to improve the visibility of your ultra-thin, ve...

Re: Toolbar icons too faint, hard to see

I used ribbons for years on M$Word. Greatly disliked it As well as being difficult to find things, it consumes far, far too much space on the screen. It may be clever programming, and it may even be more logical from the programmer's perspective, but it is NBG for wordprocessor users when writing an...

Re: Toolbar icons too faint, hard to see

IThough a SMO user since 2012, I wasn't party to the 2016 forum comments, for reasons you may recall Martin, so I am sorry if you were persuaded by unkind comments to make the icons more 'serious' - just as I am that you are being asked to improve them yet again. Making the icons more serious has of...

Toolbar icons too faint, hard to see

I always use the ‘older’ GUI, never the ‘ribbon’ alternative. This is one of the best features of TM. I always use a light GUI. That is, the 4th or 6th one, never the dark one at the 5th option. B U T (1) I find many of the toolbar icons just not bright enough. Even when I make them as large as I ca...

Re: Incorrect table & figure numbering

OK thanks mate. Even if you seem not to have been able to find in my documents exactly what I have been asking you to look into, I hope you have impressed on your developers that that this does appear to be a serious problem that urgently needs to be fixed. If your developers would like further info...

Re: Incorrect table & figure numbering

Yes, in that first version I sent you of the document, the Table of Figures was still working. In THAT document version, I had reported to you that i was getting to TABLE captions, both called 'Table 1'. It was only later that the problem migrated from Tables captions to Figures captions. Would you ...

Re: Document map pane

Yes I know, Martin, and I like the idea of importance-related icon sizes but I'm still not one of the heretics who practise all the rest of that heresy! I did try, for years, to learn to like the M$ ribbon concept but I failed. I disliked it more and more. (1) Most documents have 'portrait' proporti...

Re: Incorrect table & figure numbering

U N S U C C E S F U L My latest version of the document has had the contents pages regenerated so the bad first lines you mention have gone. I have tried to correct the numerous repeat captions, 'Figure 1' by deleting those captions and using TM to add new captions to replace them. This has generall...
