Re: When is "redo" supposed to work?

Eileen, as you posted your question in the SoftMaker Officer 2021 forum and not in the FreeOffice forum, I supposed that you are already using the paid version.
Cheers

Re: When is "redo" supposed to work?

Alternatively, is there a keyboard shortcut for adding rows to a table? I'd be glad to just hit that over and over. Hi Eileen, there is no predefined keyboard shortcut for inserting rows in a table, but TextMaker (like the other SoftMaker Office apps) has a most convenient feature to define your ow...

Re: Installed SoftMaker Office 2021 & 2012 Is Still Installed

Different versions of SoftMaker Office can be installed side by side.
There is no risk if you leave SMO 2012 installed.
There is also no risk in uninstalling SMO 2012 as both versions use different settings, templates and so on.

Re: TextMaker behaves inconsistently on different Macs

If there is no difference in the versions and configurations of SoftMaker Office there must have been a change on the OS side. Between High Sierra and Big Sur lots of things may have changed unter the hood.

Re: Allow open csv without confirmation

I prefer it the way it is, because this gives me the safety that the CSV file is read correctly by PlanMaker. CSV files are not unambiguous in their formatting, so PlanMaker needs some hints how to interpret them. What if you turn off this inquiry and then get a CSV with a different separator, code ...

Re: Envelopes

If you cannot address envelopes by hand and if you cannot afford 50 Dollars or Euros to buy SoftMaker Office (we are not talking about Microsoft Office here), you may try to create a table over the whole page with cells the size of convenient self-adhesive labels and address your letters by affixing...

Re: Envelopes

Why should it? Please remember that FreeOffice is offered completely for free. There is no obligation to include all features of a program in the free version. If you need the envelope function so badly, you should buy the full version.

Re: Create new, BLANK text box?

New text boxes in FlexiPDF are per default transparent. Create a new text box with the Text plus tool (T+), then activate the Object tool, right-click the text box, go to Text box > Background colour in the context menu and change "None" to "White".

Re: Spell check language keeps changing

Language is also a part of character style, and character style can be a part of paragraph style. Maybe your default character or paragraph style has Japanese as language. When you open the right sidebar, you can check each character and paragraph style in use in your document by selecting one and c...

Re: i have two pages on my screen

TextMaker creates a new page only if there is content which doesn't fit on the first page. Maybe there are some blanks or an invisible break at the end of your document. You may click on the paragraph symbol in the toolbar or invoke Tools > Options, tab "View", and then check "All" at "Show unprinta...

Re: Possible to create 'Replace' script for TextMaker?

Not quite sure if I understand you correctly. Do you want to change existing documents you get from somebody else or do you want to type "Level" and get "Lvl" as result?

Re: Ascending dates in column

When you put two dates with ascending month in the first two cells, e.g. "01.01.2021" in A1 and "01.02.2021" in A2, then select both cells and drag the black button down, you get what you want.

Re: I'm looking for a font ...

I don't know which fonts in the MegaFont Collection have this character, but it is not so uncommon; it's the Unicode character U+017F in section "Latin Extended A". For example, my Times New Roman has it. Maybe this can help in your search. In TextMaker, when you invoke Insert > Symbol..., choose "L...

Re: Batch convert to docx

Yes, there is.
You will find a BasicMaker script for this task here.
It was written for SMO 2018, but I see no reason why it shouldn't work with SMO 2021, too.
