Re: Installing SoftMaker Office 2021

Dear SuperTech, Thanks for the reply. I was under the impression that the idea of treating Windoze's font sub-directory as if it were just an ordinary directory was "nicht wahr" and the practice "verboten". (Look at me, I'm bilingual! ;-) Would you happen to know if SMO 2021's installer asks if it s...

Re: Good FontManager?

Greetings, On the assumption that a company that sells fonts might also sell font manager software, I visited Softmaker's web site some weeks ago looking for a font manager. I assumed that it didn't because there seems to be no mention of its existence at the page you linked to (thanks), nor on the ...

Re: Keyboard input disabled by adjusting template: Textmaker 2021 text window remains blank

Greetings, I think I've had a similar problem about three times in the last 18 years. Each time, including the last time (which was about three weeks ago), the problem occurred because, as Mr. Kotulla mentioned, the paragraph's character property had become "protected." The last time this occurred w...

Re: Installing SoftMaker Office 2021

Greetings, I have a few installation questions of my own. It seemed reasonable to tack them onto this thread, but feel free to move them if you think it best. Background: I have already purchased my upgrade to SMOP 2021, but I’ve been hesitant to install it. From 2002 forward, I always installed SMO...

Re: Pinning and Unpinning TextMaker Templates

Dear SuperTech, Please accept my appallingly late thanks for your wonderfully prompt reply. Your information, which appears to be geared towards a user of a pre-release version of TM 2021 was not an exact match for my post-release version of TM 2018, but it was close enough. Thanks again! Cordially,...

Re: Musical flat symbol

Dear miguel-c: At least for me, your post was very useful. I had no idea of the existence of the feature you described. If anyone else wishes to read about it, it is described in the "Inserting special characters" section of both the TM2018 help file and its instruction manual (pp. 146-147). Thanks ...

Pinning and Unpinning TextMaker Templates

Greetings, The "create a new default document" button's triagle and the File>New command both allow one to create a new document based upon any template one wishes. I have notice some peculiarities with this process: a. I seem unable to “pin” additional templates to the displayed list of templates u...

PlanMaker 2018 Pro (938) Seems to Forget File Setting(s)

Greetings, When using PlanMaker 2018 Pro (938) to save a file to PlanMaker 2016 format (and possibly other formats), the – Page Setup -> Scaling Options -> Scaling Mode – selected is not saved. After I select “Specify width in pages” and save the file, it is back to “Specify height and width in page...

Re: 2016 tmd to 2018

Dear Sven, I had sent SoftMaker a ZIP file which I thought was a replacement for the RAR file that was poorly received (pun), but, after checking my records, I discovered that the ZIP file regarded a different issue. Currently I have no complaints regarding TM 2018's ability to open TM 2016 files, s...

Re: Turning off hyphenation?

Greetings, If you are using a template that has a paragraph style set for no hyphenation, and TextMaker is hyphenating paragraphs in that style anyway, then there is something wrong with TextMaker. Perhaps, however, you are not actually using a paragraph style with no hyphenation? Earlier version of...

Re: 2016 tmd to 2018

Greetings, ---- 2018-10-27 -- Corrections 1. The problem I had with TextMaker 2018 when it was new and new'ish is that it would crash immediately or shortly after I opened some TM 2016 generated files. This is somewhat similar to the original poster's problem, but it is definitely not the "same prob...

The latter mode is object mode that is engaged when one selects an object, and that remains engaged only ...
