Good evening. This applies to SoftMaker Office in general, although I have currently only use for the feature in TextMaker. When I copy&paste fragments of HTML-content from a browser into TextMaker, <img/> is honored in the way that the picture is included in the TextMaker version of the document. T...

Re: doc turns to pdf before I can print

There is a long wait for document to spool to the printer (more than a minute). I have to leave document open after telling it to print or it will not print if I close the window too soon. PSE be more specific, as your latest post does not fit under the topic you have chosen and it does not respond...

The OP asked

Re: Insert > Photo album

I tested it with rev.946.0213 64bit and the Nightly version and the option "Save within document" was set. The problem occurs, when the option is NOT SET . The OP wrote: If pictures are added via the 'Photo-album' wizard as embedded link ('Save pictures in document' has not been ticked ), Presenter...

Re: Insert > Photo album

Confirmed.

This malfunction and the obligation to store images in the document defy the whole purpose of the wizard.

Re: List of bugs at a glance

If you save and open later Meaning: The current font-setting is not taken into consideration, if the original font is different from the one currently set automatically (as a replacement font) by TextMaker? This is a little esoteric. Let's say, I like the replacement font better. How do I save the ...

Re: Clear Text Style Formatting

How do you clear character styles from a block of text? Presumably, to clear paragraph styles, one just applies a different style or chooses "Standard". You define a character style which represents what you consider "cleared", then apply it. Edit: Over 2100 views for this thread? Holy Crap. Are th...

Generate tables in a new TMDX-document

This is the result of an endeavor already mentioned in https://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=306&t=18232 You can replace TMDX by OOXML in the subject-line of this post.

Re: No hidden settings folder

I only access to a sub-folder of /home/[user], when I already know what I want to do there or which file I will need to work with. So, while I had to get accustomed to the new location in ~/SoftMaker , -and although I had to change a few shell-scripts which manipulate the configuration of SoftMaker ...

Re: Cut/Copy/Paste does not copy formatting...

On the Home tab, section Edit on the left, there is a paint brush, which is meant for copying format. Excel has exactly the same and it works well in Planmaker. Although I do not contribute to a possible “solution”, you should also consider using the “Paste Special“ option. It is by default mapped ...

Ok, but my question is how to get automatic numbering of chapters, please see post of Dec. 6th.
You can do that outside of Textmaker, using XSLT on the expanded document.xml file, then routinely to make updates... :lol:

Re: how to add chapter numbers to the headings?

I read in the manual that you have to insert the chapter-number as a field, i.e. using the menu-command
Insert|Field
