Re: disable permanent hyphenation

You can't buy FreeOffice because it is already free. What's the problem about distributing the modified Normal.tmvx template to your users? Don't you distribute your company templates to your users anyway? You could even change the configuration by pointing all users to the same template path. Also,...

Re: Arch Linux installation package ver. 966-1 is broken

The answer is simple: The .tgz installer is a standalone installer for any Linux system. It has nothing to do with pacman.

Re: Custom installer

Some clarifications: - Since FreeOffice uses the same MSI installer as SoftMaker Office, you can indeed distribute the package via Active Directory. Read the instructions at https://www.softmaker.com/en/tips-installation and apply them to FreeOffice. - One product key for FreeOffice is indeed limite...

Re: No license code required?

We have streamlined the process of registering. Instead of requesting the e-mail address upfront, you can install FreeOffice and use it for up to 10 days before registering. Registering is now done inside the software. We had some feedback on the German forum about this as well and will add an optio...

Re: Huge bug in printer driver in New v2.0.4

Hmm. The PrintDisp we ship is version 3.5.42.147.

Are you using another application that also installed a PrintDisp (this is the ActMask PDF printer kit)? I think you might have a conflict there.

Re: Huge bug in printer driver in New v2.0.4

Yes, we can print to PDF with 2.0.4. We did this during testing before the 2.0.4 release and we did it this afternoon after your e-mails.

Re: Huge bug in printer driver in New v2.0.4

John, you have sent this twice to us by e-mail. In each case, we replied explaining what is going on on your system. You never replied, instead you chose to post the same claim here :?

Re: FreeOffice 2018 Doesn't Start in Linux Mint

Post more details:

1. Mint: Run TextMaker with -debug: textmaker -debug

This creates the log file tmlog.txt in your home folder which protocols the launch process. Send this file to forum (at) softmaker.de referencing this thread.

Re: Copying Paragraph styles to another PC

I am getting that prompt and am not happy that there is no explanation of what it is doing I answered no and it still seems to work. When you ask TextMaker to set a new default template, it obviously needs to be change the registry so that Windows knows about it. This is unrelated to what you have ...

Re: FreeOffice now comes up with message to update registry?

If you use Windows 10, then you will need to know that Windows 10 arbitrarily changes the registry and takes away file associations from applications because "it feels this way". In the last two days, my Windows 10 decided to reassociate PNG files and HTML files away from Paint Shop Pro and Chrome t...

Most likely, you don't use the current revision. You need 967. Run "Check for updates".

Re: Bold text

As far as I can see, there is no bold version of Linux Libertine Display.

While SoftMaker Office can slant fonts to make fake italics, it cannot make them thicker to make fake bolds. In any case, neither fake italics nor fake bolds look good.

Please choose a font that has a real bold style.

Re: printing an envelope with Free Office

SoftMaker Office has an envelope function for this purpose.

In FreeOffice, you need to create your document manually: set the page size to the size of your envelope, insert text frames for sender and recipient, fill the text frames. You can save the result as a template for future use.
