How are complex tables handled?

I have to deal with tables of complex structure that have merged or split cells. As far as I can see, the Table Box feature doesn't preserve this structure and exports a table strictly as an MxN grid. How do I handle more complex tables?

[Issue] Grid is rendered in exported images

When exporting images, the grid is rendered in them if it's displayed in the application. I haven't found any obvious way to disable this, and neither can I think of any reason to render the grid here. Can you suppress grid rendering or at least make it optional?

Re: [Issue] Ctrl+Shift+B doesn't work for Rebuild

This issue is resolved. For the record, the offending software was TPFanControl, a utility to control CPU fan speed on Thinkpad laptops. I was able to see what was grabbing the hotkey using a free program called Hotkey Explorer.

Re: [Issue] Ctrl+Shift+B doesn't work for Rebuild

On a desktop PC, Ctrl+Shift+B works as it should. I have no idea what part of configuration can prevent it from working on my laptop because I've excluded the obvious possibilities.

Re: [Issue] Can't Rebuild certain text

Still there in v1.08. Occurs with a different document.

[Bug?] "Render text in vector artwork" not set, yet vertical text being rendered anyway

I may have found a bug: the "Render text in vector artwork" checkbox is not set, but vertical text in vector artwork is being rendered anyway. This is in v1.08.

Re: Convert PDF to editable word text.

I don't think FlexiPDF is designed to do that. Its purpose is more like helping you avoid the need to convert to traditional editable formats.

Re: Last view

That would be a nice option to have. And not difficult to implement, I guess.

Re: Problem opening files with FlexiPDF

For what it's worth, I can reproduce the problem with the topic starter's file which he sent to me. (Even though he may have given up already.) The file opens initially without any error but doesn't look correct. When I try to press Page Down a couple of times, the first error occurs (see file "jbig...

Re: Search & Replace with special characters

This is not yet possible in FlexiPDF but on our wishlist for the future. Nice to know that it's at least planned. That functionality is really needed because it takes a lot of time to delete, add, or replace para breaks in text boxes one by one when preparing for export to CAT tools. Regular expres...

Re: Is there a future for FlexiPDF?

Agree 100%. I've just noticed that SoftMaker is not answering any support questions that I've sent. Why? Well, I guess you can always turn to Iceni Infix for new stuff. But I vaguely remember that FlexiPDF was better than Infix at some things I tried, and I don't like the new server-based story wit...

Is there a future for FlexiPDF?

I'm now starting to wonder if there is a future for FlexiPDF, given that Softmaker doesn't look very eager to answer questions here or share development news. It would be a shame if this effort went nowhere, because technically, there is much potential in the product, even if I as a customer and the...

Search & Replace with special characters

Is it possible to search for and replace special characters like ^p for paragraph break and ^l for line break?
