Embed all fonts 2. creates PDF files you can give to others because it embeds only those fonts where the font foundry has declared they may be embedded. 3. creates PDF files you can create ...

Re: Could Not Paste Key During Install

I cannot reproduce this.

1. The product key is not asked during install, but when you start SoftMaker Office for the first time. Please verify that we are talking about the same thing.

2. I have no trouble whatsoever pasting the key into TextMaker by pressing Ctrl+V. Please try that.

Re: Broken package after install (libgl1-mesa-glx not satisfied)

1. Fixing dependencies should be done with apt-get install -f

2. okty2k's problem is different. If you have broken dependencies, then SoftMaker Office would not start at all. If it starts, it is not a dependency problem. Can you post a screenshot?

Not only that. Using the ribbon command View | Sidebars, you can move all sidebar tabs to the right, into the same sidebar.

Re: Do we still have to jump through hoops?

During the beta, there are no service packs. So you need to reinstall, but...

1. You can simply run the new setup and it will silently replace the old version.
2. Why should you need to reboot? The setup doesn't ask you to do that.

Re: Does Office 21 prevent one from overwriting newer versions?

1. Desktop applications (at least SoftMaker Office and Microsoft Office) keep files open while you edit them to prevent others from opening the same file and working on it). This works for files that are on your local storage or a network drive. But cloud files are outside the realm of accessibility...

Re: Does Office 21 prevent one from overwriting newer versions?

1. Do you know any desktop application that does this? I think if that was a concern, it should be handled by the cloud, not by the applications.

2. Autosave never overwrites the original file.

Re: Does Office 21 prevent one from overwriting newer versions?

I am not sure I understand your question. SoftMaker Office for Linux doesn't have any built-in cloud file handling, so it would really on whatever drivers you have installed on the system level to provide cloud access. And when it detects that a file exists already, a Save as would of course ask if ...

Re: Calculation-error (PM2021 multiplies with FORMATTED value and not with numeric value)?

Are we talking about imprecisions in the fifteenth place after the comma? All calculations are handled by the FPU of your computer, and around the 15th place is the point where precision simply ends. It might be that LibreOffice masks the imprecisions better, but they will still be there unless they...

Re: Editing a document written in a different language

These names are stored in the document and, by extension, in the document template. That's why we offer English templates, so that you can start an English document by basing it on an English template. If you don't like that, you can go to the Insert caption dialog and create different labels, using...

Re: Will product updates for Office 2018 continue once 2021 is released?

Since you purchased SoftMaker Office 2018, there have already been four service packs. Our policy for service packs is "3 years after initial software release", and after that, service packs will be released when required to address security issues.
