Re: TextMaker list of bugs

Thanks for looking into each issue and getting back to me, Sven. Really appreciate that! So, some thoughts: - The Sanskrit/Bengali/Hindi/etc font issue is a bit frustrating just because in writing things like scriptural studies, reverting to something as ancient as Word 2003 fixes the issue. Just th...

Re: TextMaker list of bugs

- There is something off about the page breaks in Textmaker -- Atlantis and MS Word 2007 and 2003 do not have these problems. Basically, it looks like TextMaker requires an additional empty line to be added below any ending paragraph, or the last sentence of that paragraph (when on justified settin...

This is the same behavior as in MS Word (tested with MS Word 2019).
I think you of all people will understand that this is a bad argument (or why else SoftMaker Office?) :D

Re: TextMaker list of bugs

Tested with TextMaker 2018 rev.938.1002 64bit in Windows 10 64bit Version 1803 I can properly select two and more empty lines above a line of text. Could you please attach a sample file? The issue occurs when the lines are centered on the page and it has, say, a title above it. However, I just test...

TextMaker list of bugs

Softmaker Textmaker 2018 bugs (last service pack as of 2018-11: - Can not select a second empty line without a space or character in it when that second empty line is placed before a line with text. For example, you want to select 2 empty lines above a line of text or paragraph: this won't work beca...

Re: What's new compared to 2016?

If you are concerned about the size of the program you can always create a portable version of the suite with the portable creator utility (included) and save it to a folder on your HDD/SSD or else USB stick and take out the files you don't need. For example, I removed all language files except the ...

Re: FlexiPDF is...

OK, thanks Martin. I tried out the (English) OCR function and it was actually pretty good on scanned book pages. It had some problem recognizing unusual characters (ABBYY Finereader is better at that) but overall pretty good. I have a lot of books with transliterated (Roman) Sanskrit text with speci...

FlexiPDF is basically Infix PDF Editor v7.x by Iceni Technology, or not? The user interface looks identical, so I figure it's really the same program.

Re: Requests. Full Screen / no internet required. Basicmaker.

2. Please remove the need for an internet registration process to use the program fully while in freeoffice. It is a fullstop to using the program because if you have no internet you simply can't test what you'll use (driving potential users away before testing the waters and compatibility) And ins...

Re: Security Advice Error while saving files in Google Drive

Yeah, I have had this too, several times (no rhyme or reason to it). Another example of this great activation scheme SoftMaker has going on. Since SMO 2010 I've been saying on the forum, please don't mess with your portable option, please don't go to this horrendous online activation scheme that oth...

Re: Wow, very good.

You're right Martin (of course), it does require internet activation when installed/used on different PC's or VM's.. I was living in a fool's paradise, as I had internet connection on those computers and VM's I tried the portable on. I will give you a real life example why I am so against this and w...

Re: Want to modify Normal.tmv but can't

What I always do (when I have the save problem) is save the desired template .tmv to something like "Normal1.tmv" and then later navigate to the location and delete (or rename) the Normal.tmv and change Normal1 to Normal and then it automatically uses the new template as default.

Re: PDF Export

Ah, I'm sorry Sven, I exported the PDF's with default settings on both FreeOffice TextMaker 2016, as well as TextMaker 2012 Pro, but I overlooked that the 2016 version of TextMaker PDF Export has an additional feature (selected by default), namely "Create Tagged PDF." This accounts for the increase ...

Re: Wow, very good.

Thanks, Martin. Well, it is true that initially there is the requirement of internet activation, but once I have done that and then make it into a portable, after that I can run it on any computer, it doesn't have to be tied to a USB drive or anything (in other words I can run the suite from a folde...
