Search Engine

I put this topic on the forum some time back but it is gone now, so I will re-post. It is best to re-work a document in its original program. For instance, a document published by Serif PagePlus should be edited in Pageplus and then re-published in a PDF. Since I create most of my own PDFs this is n...

text wrap

I can't find text wrap anywhere in the menu. For some reason the text is behind an image. I can't find a way to wrap it around the image as it was in the original.

is database on the horizon?

Hello from America, I'm about ready to build a database for my tax business to help fill out tax forms and keep track of customer data. Are you folks still developing a database? It's been several years since I asked about this. I do all my publishing in Softmaker Textmaker now and am very satisfied...

font substitution

On occasion some of the true type or open type fonts which I use become corrupted and must be uninstalled. Sometimes I can't even open the file. I don't see a "font substitution" dialogue in Textmaker. Some publishing programs have such a dialogue and it allows me to change the font which I use in a...

Re: Useability

I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a picture toolbar. It is at the bottom just above the status bar. Very handy. Thanks.

Useability

=D> I've got to say that Textmaker 2018 is a huge improvement. It is pleasant to use. I'm glad that you added the ribbon environment although I'm a menus fan myself. The interface is colorful and customizable. I was never able to work in the MS Word 2013 environment with its stark whiteness. This is...

Re: need for improved graphic manipulation

Again, thank you for your response. I know this is a digression, but I tried iWork in the cloud and it turns out that it doesn't do much in the way of image manipulation. GoBeProductive is hopelessly outdated. So... I wait (hopefully) for Softmaker to someday find a way to upgrade their image proces...

Re: need for improved graphic manipulation

Thank you for your very considerate response. I wasn't aware that I could put a "crop button" on the toolbar. That's very cool. I'm a visual person and usually load my documents with images to better illustrate my ideas. Microsoft took a long time to come around with good graphics tools in MSWord, b...

need for improved graphic manipulation

Since SM2016 advertises itself as capable of making good publications I find myself comparing it to my other publisher programs. Here's what I like about the program as it is. 1. It is first of all a first rate word processor and it behaves like one. 2. It will assemble a book, with footnotes, TofC,...

Re: Notes section for the sidebar

When I write a document I often don't know exactly where information (sentences or paragraphs) should be inserted. This is easy with a publishing program because some of these have resource tabs where information can be stored until needed. This is why I asked for a notes tab. You are right that I c...

Notes section for the sidebar

I keep a multitude of notes in various places on my computer depending on which software program I'm using to create a document. It would be a real plus if Textmaker had a "notes" tab in the sidebar, just for text. It would be even better if I could copy from it and it would automatically paste in t...
