Re: Margins - inches to centimeters

TextMaker takes the units of measure from the system-wide Windows settings. When you change these to "Metric", they are also changed in TextMaker. If you want to keep inches for the system settings, you may also type e.g. "2 cm" directly into the respective fields.

Re: Links and paragraph formatting problem?

Hi, I tried to reproduce this problem but couldn't. When I copy a link address from my browser (Firefox) and paste it into a TextMaker document, the link is in blue and underlined, but otherwise it has the same font and size as my previous text, and following text is unchanged. Where do you get the ...

Re: Don't like new ribbon toolbar

If the ribbon interface is active, go to "File", click "Options", tab "Appearance", click "User interface" and choose one of the Classic menus (light or dark). PlanMaker has to be restarted after that. Unfortunately, due to internal program changes, individual adjustments of the toolbars made in SMO...

Re: worksheet printing

Good questions! Let me start with question 2: Instead of creating a new document, you may prepare an empty document as needed (including a footer with page number) and click "Insert" instead of "New document" in step 7. Then the existing document will be filled with the data. As to question 1, I si...

Re: worksheet printing

The trick is: As Adobe Reader does all the booklet printing business, you only need a simple single page layout in TextMaker. It is impossible to get a booklet from a two page landscape layout, for then Adobe Reader cannot sort the single pages into the sequence needed for the booklet. So the step-b...

Re: worksheet printing

This task can be done much easier by importing the data into a TextMaker database and doing the printing in TextMaker. There you have all the options you may want.

Re: Tables ending pages in TextMaker

Your document contains a page break behind the table. Normally, this in invisible, but if you click the icon with the paragraph sign in the icon bar (or go to Tools > Options..., tab "View", and check "All" in "Show unprintable characters"), a paragraph sign will appear just behind the table. Set th...

Re: Referring to numbers in lists - is this possible?

If it is a numbered list (numbered automatically via Format > Bullets and Numbering..., not by hand), you may set a bookmark ( Insert > Bookmark... ) at the beginning of each list item. Then you can enter a cross reference ( Insert > Cross reference... ) referring to a bookmark. Set to "Show number"...

Re: Shortcut for merging cells

As we are in the TextMaker forum and you refer to Excel: Is this a PlanMaker or a TextMaker issue?
But anyway: In both programs, you can define your own keyboard shortcut. Just go to Tools > Customise..., search for "Merge cells" in the left panel, then press "Shortcut keys" and define a shortcut.

Re: controlling line feed in tables

Thank you for the document, that made it easy to find the solution:
In fact, TextMaker creates a new line, but the height of the row is set to "Exact", so the new line is not visible.
Set the cursor in the row, go to Table > Row properties... and set "Height" to "Auto". Bingo!
