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...

Re: Document map pane

With today's very high-res display screens, I find the default program UI resolution is giving me icons that are just too small for me. Added to this is that the white, pale yellow and pale blue icons used by TM, on a pale grey background, when they are so small, make me have to peer at the screen a...

Re: Compress pictures

Understood.
I know you can't compress pictures in the document much or at all if they're stored as .jpg etc. I hope they are stored like that.

Martin, thank you. I'm sorry I seem to have been asking about such simple problems. I will try harder!

Re: Incorrect table & figure numbering

HELP please! This problem is getting far, far worse now. In addition to two tables, both called 'Table 1' , TM has numbered no fewer than EIGHT of my 28 captioned figures, all as 'Figure 1' . See partial screenshot: Screenshot 2020-09-30 at 18.15.27.png I have sent you this document, although it is ...

Compress pictures

What has happened to the 'Compress pictures' option?
The online manual still says it's on the System tab in the Options dialog box, but I can't find it there or anywhere else?

Re: Unwanted Greek symbol added to document

Ahhh yes, of course! It was a tracked-changes insertion. It must have been an accidental keystroke that put it there, and I just forgot that it might be a tracked-changes insertion. Once again, I'm sorry. I've been caught before by that one, trying forever to fix something and forgetting that tracke...
