Re: Unable to install at mac

Revision 972, released yesterday, is properly notarized, so that it starts without modifying Gatekeeper.

Re: PM 2016 unable to read .xlsx files

Please do not edit posts after someone has already replied to them. That creates a bit of chaos for anyone trying to follow the discussion. SoftMaker Office 2016 is discontinued and there will be no more updates for this version. If you want to try the file with a current version, go to www.freeoffi...

Re: Unable to install at mac

Welcome to Catalina :-(

Open Gatekeeper, go the General tab and click on "Open anyway".

Re: PM 2016 unable to read .xlsx files

That's entirely possible. Third-party applications that create XLSX files tend to create files that Excel just barely reads. The developers tweak their export only as much as necessary for Excel not to complain. ;-)

Re: Find and Replace does not work correctly.

We do it exactly like in Microsoft Word, because customers asked us to do it this way.

Re: Find and Replace does not work correctly.

TextMaker adapts the casing of the replacement term to the term as it appears in the document. To prevent this, activate the option "Case-sensitive".

Re: Can't print a page with symbol

Most likely, these are emojis which are in the 32-bit Unicode character set. At this time, SoftMaker Office supports 16-bit Unicode ("only" 65536 different characters...)

Re: Cannot unlock using purchased license key

SoftMaker Office places the license file in /etc/SoftMaker. Ensure that your application has access to this folder and can write to it.

Re: Can't Install SoftMaker FreeOffice 2018 in macOS Catalina

Since it is not notarized yet, you need to open Gatekeeper and click on "Run anyway" to add it to the exceptions list. We are working on notarization.

Re: Accidently clicked on dont save while exiting Textmaker

Unfortunately, when you tell it not to save, then it really does not save. You can go to Documents\SoftMaker\Backup to find older versions of the file.

Re: License terms for business use

You can install it on all the PCs of your company, but you need to request individual product keys for each, since each FreeOffice product key is for just one commercially used PC. You can request the keys directly in the software, and you can always use the same e-mail address.

Re: Thinking about the future

DOCX is an ISO-standardized format, and tons of applications can open it. TMDX is just a superset of DOCX. RTF is not standardized by any standardization body and changes all the time. Even if SoftMaker were to go out of business, you could still run TextMaker and save your files in a different form...

Re: AutoShape copy paste loses formation

You need to go to or stay in object mode before you paste. When you are in normal writing mode, the AutoShapes are simply inserted in the text flow, and there is no way to keep the relation between them.
