Re: Undo going too far back with single Ctrl+ Z

Please see also https://bit.ly/2ZP0tKq, which seems to be another report about the same fault.

Re: Ctrl-Z and Ctrl-Y are broken

Sorry I haven't had time yet to build a further report with sample document. I will try to do so but I need to wait until it happens again, which might not be for a few days because I don't have any large documents in preparation at the moment. It does not always happen. But it does seem to happen q...

Re: CrossRef to Figure, relative position, points the wrong way

Please, chaps, try not ALWAYS to ask for a copy of the document when you don't need to. Try to lessen, not add to, the burden on your ongoing beta test team if ever you can. I'd really appreciate that. In this case, you could very easily : - make temporary use of any TM document of your own, - inser...

Re: Object properties lost when SAVEd and reOPENed

It's a bit tedious I'm afraid but what you need to do is this: 1) Go to page 2 with the diagram. 2) Ungroup all images and text boxes 3) REPEAT 5 times, once for each of the blue text boxes, A, B, C, D, E: Select the blue text. Press Ctrl-A Set font size to 10 point Format -> Drop caps -> 3rd patter...

Object properties lost when SAVEd and reOPENed

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1016.0624) 64bit WHen I arrange objects on the screen, with shadows, and font settings, then save and re-open, the settings are lost. See example attached.

Re: Char styles side-panel wrongly displayed

Thank you for taking so much trouble to help with this. The difficulty I had is now resolved. I have set Tools > Options > Appearance > Document scaling > Custom to 143dpi. Modern monitors and laptop screens have such high resolution that everything displayed becomes very small. I had been compensat...

CrossRef to Figure, relative position, points the wrong way

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1016.0624) 64bit I have reported this before and it seems to have been partially fixed but it still isn't right. See SMO beta forum reference : https://bit.ly/3gmMy4S Cross references to figures are no longer giving garbage but, when I insert one to a figure BELOW ...

I'll try, but I am extremely busy just now and it might take me a while before I can provide what you ask.

Ctrl-Z and Ctrl-Y are broken

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1016.0624) 64bit I am finding that Undo and Redo, when operated using Ctrl-Z and Ctrl-Y respectively, are behaving very dangerous to use, for fear of losing a great deal of work. I haven't tried using the the toolbar icon versions or edit menu versions of these com...

Re: Char styles side-panel wrongly displayed

Thank you, especially, for pointing out the 'preview' check-box. I had not noticed that, and it's a great help being able to switch it off. Your explanation about the screen magnifcation factor doesn't help, though. I hadn't noticed the screen mag slider but that makes no difference because I use Ct...

Char styles side-panel wrongly displayed

TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1016.0624) 64bit In the CHAR styles side-panel, it is helpful to show all of the listed styles in the font types and sizes that are assigned to them. It appears that this is what the TM developers have intended. There's a mistake, however. Each entry in the list do...

Re: SM2021 not updating

Thank you and I am sorry if I forgot to add the repository. Are you quite sure about this explanation? I ask, because, (1) I was very surprised because I felt sure that I had added it when I installed SMO2021, and (2) although my oversight would explain why ' sudo apt-get update ' didn't work, I don...

:Until a few minutes ago (ie Monday 29 June 2020 about 19:15 GMT+1), my version of SMO has been the version I downloaded and installed immediately on SMO2021 first release, namely TextMaker Professional 2021 (rev S1014.0529) 64bit .
