Re: Database issue

The field type for a ZIP code (or a phone number) must be "Character", not "Numeric". If the field type is "Numeric", the content will be considered as a number and leading zeros will be truncated.

Re: Background Printing

Please go to File > Properties..., tab "View". Is "Print page background" checked?

I learned the hard way to get a back up system set up ASAP.
I think most of us have learned that the hard way when we started using a computer – been there, experienced that. :cry: Glad you could avoid a major disaster.

Re: HELP!!! ALL MY DATA IS MISSING

Oh. My. God. You have been working for a month with important spreadsheets every single day without ever making a backup? Lesson No 1: BACK THEM UP. BACK THEM UP. BACK THEM UP. Daily, at least. And to more than one location. Now, having made that clear, go to Tools > Options..., tab "Files". Is "Cre...

Re: Auto-numbering fault in a table

I don't have Linux installed, so could only test it with the Mac version: When I select only the cells to be numbered and choose a numbering list instead of simple numbering, it's all right. With simple numbering, it's the first number throughout, just as you reported.

Re: Page Numbering and Chapter breaks

In Format > Chapter..., you may check "Different first page". Then, when you start page numbering on page two, the first page is not included. There is also the button "Page numbers..." which allows to set a manual start value for each chapter. The default setting is "Increment" which means that the...

Re: Odd/impractical spellcheck behaviour

This checkbox already exists: There is a "Search from top" option in the Search and replace dialogue box (if you are searching via the left sidebar, click "Advanced..." to get there). Unfortunately you cannot choose to have this option checked by default, so users like kgha who want to search from t...

Re: Musical flat symbol

I fully agree with Richard. That a special symbol is only available when I use a font containing this symbol is basic knowledge from Word processing 101. For me it is essential to have full control over all the fonts used in my documents and I definitely don't want a program to insert glyphs from ot...

Re: Unformatted Text & Others Functions

This could only work if hard page breaks were inserted between all pages. But this would contradict the basic idea of a word processor, i. e. that you can alter, insert or delete text just as you like and the layout is always adjusted accordingly, even over page borders. In a document with hard page...

Re: Unformatted Text & Others Functions

The option to paste unformatted text has been present already in TextMaker 2018, even in the free version FreeOffice. You will find it there at Edit > Paste Special... or Alt+Ctrl+V. In FreeOffice, you must select the option "Unformatted text" in the dropdown menu which opens; in the full version, y...
