Re: Mailings Moving to Next

If I understand the thread opener correctly, it's not about navigating to single records, but to print labels where each of the 20 labels shows a different record, not the same twenty times over.

Re: Superb-feature request: auto-filecompression

Such an extension would be nice to have, but I'm a bit sceptical. In my experience the main reason for bulky word processor documents are large embedded images, so the main task of such an extension would be to compress images, and AFAIK image processing is not SoftMaker's central competence area. M...

Re: Styles- Are some missing?

What if you choose at the bottom of the sidebar „All styles" instead of "Styles in use"?

Re: Textmaker Will Not Paste Some Text

If it can be fixed by clicking the "slanted arrow" icon, you got into object mode by chance. This icon toggles between edit mode and object mode. In object mode you can only handle objects (text boxes, images and so on) while text editing is blocked. This happens probably the following way: In the c...

Re: Default file format

@Woody44: This is really a problem. Of course, there's good reason to ask SoftMaker support always to give both ways, but look at ordinary board members like me: Just like you, I'm a diehard follower of classic menus. So, when I answer questions here, I always give the steps for classic menus, and I...

Re: Need help solving a mystery break in the text.

To show hidden characters, go to Tools > Options, tab "View" and check "All" in "Show unprintable characters" or click the paragraph icon in the toolbar/ribbon.

Re: Headers, footers and page numbers -- how to use them?

The use of chapter breaks is something that seems to be unique to TextMaker. At least I was unaware of it when I used Word. When I finish this project and save for upload to the publisher, I'll use *.docx format since most publishers like that format. Will the chapter breaks work okay when I do tha...

Re: Extra File Appearing when Saving

When you go to Tools > Options, tab "Files", and choose "No backups" in the "Backup" field, the program will stop saving backup files. But you should be aware that you won't have a backup file then to fall back to if anything goes wrong with the actual file or it is destroyed accidentally. So it mig...

Re: Headers, footers and page numbers -- how to use them?

To solve your issues, just insert chapter breaks. First chapter break after front matter to let page numbering begin from there, then chapter breaks after each book chapter to get the headers right. NB: Facing pages in an open book show even page numbers left, odd page numbers right. The two page vi...

Re: Template changes

I have just tested it: I open the template, set the cursor in the form field, select all with Ctrl+A, double-click a different character style in the sidebar and save the template.
When I create a new document with this template, the form field has the new font. No need for a table.

Re: Template changes

To make font changes permanent in templates, proceed as follows: 1. Go to File > Open..., choose file type "Templates (*.tmvx, *tmv) and open the template you want to change. 2. Go to Format > Paragraph style, choose "Normal", press "Edit...", then the “Character" button and make your changes. 3. Re...

Re: Template location

I guess you are aware already that, after moving your template folder, you have to change the folder path in Tools > Options, tab "Files", to make it work properly.

Re: Create a textbox

The first paragraph of your solution contains basically what I wrote. As I didn't know what you needed the text box for, I didn't add the steps for filling and writing in the text box, but I'm glad you've found the solution you were searching for.

Re: View two pages side by side for print book setup

Unfortunately, this function doesn't allow to view facing pages side-by-side (as in an open book), because the title page isn't shown separately; so you see left pages right and right pages left and cannot control the layout properly. The only workaround at present is to insert an empty page as firs...
