Re: Unable to access Debian Softmaker package

The instructions expect that you run this command from the folder that the DEB package is in. If it is not, you need to prepend the path, such as:

dpkg -i /pathToWhereTheDebReallyIs/softmaker-freeoffice-2018_934-01_i386.deb

Re: No hidden settings folder

Re: Opening RTF with Chinese characters

Sorry, I was confused. This option is only available with plain-text files and not RTF.

Re: Opening RTF with Chinese characters

I don't think it's a font problem. Even the letters that appear make no sense. What it seems to be is that TextMaker guesses the encoding of the text file wrong. But you can control that. In File > Open, pick the file type "Text file, with additional options". Then you can select the correct encodin...

Re: embed file as icon in the document

What you are requesting is OLE objects. They are a Windows-only technology, and that's why you can create them with SoftMaker Office for Windows, but not SoftMaker Office for Linux.

Re: Set Tabs forever

For your first problem of lost tabulation, please provide a sample document and let us know in which format you are saving.

For generally changing the tabs in a document, you should modify the paragraph style "Normal".

Re: Does SM Office 2016 for Windows playonlinux?

We don't test that combination, so we can't tell.

SoftMaker Office NX, our subscription version, includes all operating systems. SoftMaker Office 2016 and 2018 are licensed separately for each operating system.

You could use the trial version of 2018 for your experiments.

Re: Go to previous or next page

Press F5 to open the Go to dialog, use Previous and Next to switch from page to page. I think that's pretty fast.

Re: Downloadable software

The download links work for several years. We don't commit to keep them working forever, but right now even the ones from 15 years ago still work.

Re: Equation feature

We will be working on our own equation editor which will not use OLE. We are already have our own equation renderer in SoftMaker Office 2018 on all platforms (we needed that for DOCX support).

An Equation editor is available in TextMaker for Windows but not in the Linux version.
Thanks.

Why is that if I may ask?
It is an OLE server that we licensed from another company. OLE servers are Windows-specific.
