Re: Hyphenated words

You may either uncheck "Automatic hyphenation" in the "Tools" menu or, for a permanent solution, open Normal.tmvx (choose "Templates (*.tmvx, *.tmv") als file type in the "Open" dialogue), then go to Format > Paragraph style, choose "Normal", click "Edit..." and set "Hyphenation:" in the "Text flow"...

Re: Duplicating a table in Textmaker

With the cursor somewhere in the table, I go to Table > Select > Table. The whole table is selected, and with Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V I can copy and paste it with styles and all.

Re: Preserve justification with Manual Break

As the thread opener wrote, this issue occurs only when you load LibreOffice documents in TextMaker, not with TextMaker documents. So you'll see the problem only if you get LibreOffice files from somebody else. As LibreOffice is not needed to repair such documents, there is no need to have LibreOffi...

Re: Watermark in TextMaker

I am not an employee of SoftMaker, only a user like you, but SoftMaker support reads this forum, too, so your suggestion will be duly considered.

Re: Watermark in TextMaker

AFAIK this is not possible directly in the TextArt library. There you can only store one design as default (right-click the watermark, choose "Properties...", tab "Text" and click "Set as default"). If you need to store several watermark designs, you may either save a document consisting of an empty...

Re: Watermark in TextMaker

You may create any watermark using TextArt (Object > New Drawing > TextArt). The result is an object frame which can be resized and rotated as desired. Place it behind the text (Object > Properties..., tab "Layout", Text wrapping "Behind text") on the master page of the document (View > Mater pages)...

Re: On a Mac OS 10.15 How to open a tmbak

To open a single backup file it is sufficient to draw the .tmbak file with the mouse upon the TextMaker icon in the dock. To change options permanently, click "Choose application" in the error box (or right-click the backup file in the finder and choose "Open with..." in the context menu). In the fo...

Re: Creating a first-page-only letter header

Go to Format > Chapter, tab "Chapter", and check "Different first page". Then go to View > Master pages. Your letter head should be on the first master page only. If you want to, put a secondary letter head for follow-up pages on the second master page. An alternate way is to insert a chapter break ...

Re: Toolbar icons too faint, hard to see

The icons in SMO 2016 were great in this respect; unfortunately, they were abandoned for the pale ones in SMO 2018.

Re: Reading multiple forums

Threaded view surely has an advantage in very big forums with dozens or hundreds of replies every day where you only want to read a small part of them in selected threads and can find them more easily. Here in the SoftMaker forum I read all posts, so it's easier to click Quick links > New posts and ...

Re: Reading multiple forums

I see, it's not so much the question of forum vs. mailing list which matters for you as the display in conversation form (AFAIK conversation threading is possible in forums as well as in mail programs). Personally, I don't like it, but tastes vary.

Re: Reading multiple forums

I receive some mailing lists and I don't see the advantage over a forum. What exactly are you missing here?
