Re: Inserting PDF images

Let me help out: When you go to Object > New picture... or Object > New picture frame... , PDF is not offered in the list of file types. When you select "All files (*)" and then a PDF, you get an "Invalid picture file" message. So, obviously, it is not possible to insert an image in PDF format as a ...

Re: [Resolved]Inserting rows and columns

This command cannot only insert complete rows but also parts of rows. That's why it's called "Insert cells" and not "Insert rows". What you want is an additional command for complete rows only. Personally, I don't think much of having duplicate commands for the same action at different places.

Re: Default file locations

But we are discussing FreeOffice, and I don't see that as an option in FreeOffice. Just checked: QuickPath is available in FreeOffice. Even if it was available, it doesn't solve the issue. I can't designate every subdirectory I have documents in as a quick path; that would just duplicate a file man...

Re: Default file locations

By the way, SoftMaker Office has a most handy feature: Quick path (at the bottom of the Save dialogue). I use different directories for different kinds of documents (e.g. invoices, letters etc). So neither a fixed directory nor SoftMaker's way of offering always the directory last used meets my need...

Re: Default file locations

When you create a new TextMaker or PlanMaker document, then go to File > Save... or File > Save as..., which directory is offered in the Save dialogue?

Re: Inserting rows problem

I know at least two ways to insert a row. Either I mark the complete row below by clicking the row number in the left column, then go to Worksheet > Insert cells (or type Ctrl-+), or I set the cursor in one of the cells in the row below, then go to Worksheet > Insert cells and select "Insert complet...

Re: Wide spaces between words in justified text

I'm the last one to deny that a DTP program is far superior to any word processor for professional and demanding typographical tasks - I have worked long enough with QuarkXPress to know that. Still I don't see the need for using an additional text editor. Can you give me an example for code that can...

Re: Footnotes display

There has been an extensive discussion of this issue in the German forum some time ago, but the result is that unfortunately it's not possible, as miguel-c already wrote.

Re: Exporting smarttext entries

Additional hint: These SmartText files are simple text documents which can be altered or amended with any text editor. Extensive changes may be made quicker this way.

Re: Wide spaces between words in justified text

Without knowing anything about the intentions of the thread opener or the kind of document he has in his hands, I see no reason why he should take a double detour through a text editor. When you make all non-printable characters visible in TextMaker (Tools > Options, Tab "View"), you can do all the ...

Re: Wide spaces between words in justified text

The proper way to avoid wide gaps between words is to use hyphenation.

Re: Can't print a page with symbol

What happens when you try to print the document? Doesn't it print at all or does it print out rectangles instead of smileys?
