Re: Terrible display quality

I can confirm that the display of scanned pdf files in FlexiPDF is horrible when compared to how they display in Acrobat Reader, PDF Studio, Evince and other pdf viewers/editors. I first wondered if it could be a wine issue (running linux on my laptop) so I checked on a PC with Win10, but it's the s...

Re: Is there ever likely to be a Linux version?

I agree with you that a Linux version would be great, but while waiting (probably for quite some time) I can assure you that FlexiPDF works under wine. I've been running the 2017 pro version under wine 2.21, 3.0.1, and 4.0 without issues and just upgraded to the 2019 version which also works. Can't ...

Re: List of bugs at a glance

Can't replicate the font change issue, guess it must be caused by your particular setup. However, when trying out WPS Office I found that the program constantly changed Times New Roman to Liberation. The solution was to delete the symlink 60-liberation.conf in /etc/fonts/conf.d (the symlink linked t...

Re: Textmaker will not launch

Always a nuisance when you've upgraded libraries and a program expects an older version. A dirty workaround I often use, which might work in your case (no guarantees, though) is creating a symlink: ln -s /usr/lib/libidn.so.12.6.0 /usr/lib/libidn.so.11 This ought to be addressed in a future upgrade. ...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

For various reasons I prefer to have en_US as system language and a Swedish keyboard. This doesn't affect the use of accents in any other program, only Softmaker. As previously mentioned, I have solved the accent issue by adding the line export LANG=sv_SE.utf8 to the start script. This, however, lea...

Re: can't save file with ä or ö in filename

Yes, with system language en_US and starting Textmaker with textmaker18 and nothing else, I have no problems with using ä or ö in filenames. But (as I mentioned in post #3 in this thread) this issue is linked to the one discussed in another thread: http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=305&t=17...

Re: can't save file with ä or ö in filename

Setting system locale to LANG=sv_SE.utf8 doesn't solve this issue. And for various reasons I prefer English as system language. So I have to choose one of two options: 1) Running en_US as system locale and writing in Swedish on Swedish keyboard - then I can use å,ä,ö in filenames but accents won't d...

Re: can't save file with ä or ö in filename

I can add most special characters to a filename, e.g. + $ # @ ( ) ? !
A few give the message "invalid filename", e.g. £

suggestion: auto replace hyphen > en-dash

I frequently - maybe too frequently - use dashes when writing. For years I've missed the automatic replacement that's part of MSWord, LO, and OO when using Textmaker. The Smart text function offers a workaround, but with a small snag: When writing e.g. "Mon- and Tuesdays", the hyphen after "Mon" is ...
