Thicker lines in graphs?

Hi all, Is it possible to increase the maximum line thickness available for graphs (in this case the X/Y Scatter). I've attached a PM2018 file that shows a graph with 2 curves plotted on it. I'd like one of the curves to be much thicker (the full sine wave one) so that is is not obscured by the one ...

Re: Corrupt formatting when saving as XLS and XLSX

Hi Miguel, Thank you for your reply. My PlanMaker is the full version (in fact I have purchased it for my work and also for home with separate licences). The version is 972.1023 (64 bit). My MS Office 2003 is version 11.8169.8172 (SP3) with the 2007 compatability pack. I've loaded your saved files i...

Corrupt formatting when saving as XLS and XLSX

Hi all, I've created a spreadsheet from scratch in PM2018 and saved it as PMDX, and also XLS and XLSX to share with colleagues. If I load the XLSX into Excel 2003 (with 2007 compatability pack) then the appearance changes drastically, the scaling of the chart changes and the vertical axis label is r...

Re: Best recommended file format

Both formats are fine, but tmdx supports some features that docx doesn't. Thanks Miguel. So if the software doesn't warn of any possible features that are lost in one format or another, is there is comparison table of features anywhere that lists all the features of the different file types so that...

Re: Accented characters

If you hold a character key down then doesn't that simply cause the keyboard auto-repeat to kick in? It does on all the programs I've ever used. The only time I see extra character options pop up is if I'm using my Android phone. Be interested to know if the Mac has a different way of providing spec...

Re: Best recommended file format

Thanks Miguel, that's good to know. I shall continue to use TMDX and PMDX as my default formats.

As a matter of interest, are any warnings given if I save my native TMDX document as a DOCX if some features in the file will be lost?

Regards,

Jez

Best recommended file format

Hi all, Is there an official view on the best file format to save documents in when using TextMaker and PlanMaker? As I've bought SoftMaker Office since 2008 then I'm happy to keep using the native TMD(and TMDX) and PMD(and PMDX) formats, but I see that SoftMaker is now advertised as using DOCX and ...

PDF export direct from TextMaker or FlexiPDF

Hi all, Does anyone have any personal preference between the built-in PDF export feature of TextMaker compared to FlexiPDF 2019? I've recently purchased FlexiPDF and it has created an icon in my TextMaker but I'm not yet sure of the relative merits of creating a PDF using that or the built-in PDF ex...

Re: XLS sheet uses simple slider controls for altering cells

I've actually solved it far easier than I imagined (so much easier than Excel!). I added a "ScrollBar" object from the "Object" > "New Forms Object" menu and simply assigned it to the desired cell. I've attached the result. It opens perfectly in both PM2016 and Excel (2003), so I'm very happy. Regar...

XLS sheet uses simple slider controls for altering cells

Hi all, I have a spreadsheet (please see attached) that I made in Excel sometime ago and I wondered if it was possible to easily open it in PM. The reason I ask is because it contains sliders to alter some cell values which makes the sheet really nice to use. When I open it in PM it says that Visual...
