Re: Headers, footers and page numbers -- how to use them?

To solve your issues, just insert chapter breaks. First chapter break after front matter to let page numbering begin from there, then chapter breaks after each book chapter to get the headers right. NB: Facing pages in an open book show even page numbers left, odd page numbers right. The two page vi...

Re: Template changes

I have just tested it: I open the template, set the cursor in the form field, select all with Ctrl+A, double-click a different character style in the sidebar and save the template.
When I create a new document with this template, the form field has the new font. No need for a table.

Re: Template changes

To make font changes permanent in templates, proceed as follows: 1. Go to File > Open..., choose file type "Templates (*.tmvx, *tmv) and open the template you want to change. 2. Go to Format > Paragraph style, choose "Normal", press "Edit...", then the “Character" button and make your changes. 3. Re...

Re: Printing with TextMaker on Mac

Does it work when you choose the Apple Print Dialog first and your network printer from there?

Re: Template location

I guess you are aware already that, after moving your template folder, you have to change the folder path in Tools > Options, tab "Files", to make it work properly.

Re: Create a textbox

The first paragraph of your solution contains basically what I wrote. As I didn't know what you needed the text box for, I didn't add the steps for filling and writing in the text box, but I'm glad you've found the solution you were searching for.

Re: View two pages side by side for print book setup

Unfortunately, this function doesn't allow to view facing pages side-by-side (as in an open book), because the title page isn't shown separately; so you see left pages right and right pages left and cannot control the layout properly. The only workaround at present is to insert an empty page as firs...

Re: How do I draw a line?

There is a drawing toolbar which is turned off by default. To turn it on, go to View > Toolbars and check "Drawing". The drawing toolbar appears at the bottom of the window but can be placed elsewhere, as all toolbars in FlexiPDF. To draw a straight line (in 45° steps) hold "Shift" while drawing. Li...

Re: Is it possible to delete old, original text or graphics when adding to & editing an old pdf?

PS. What is meant by the word "crop" in Softmaker language? Delete a picture? I always understood "crop" to mean, in computer jargon, that part of a picture is removed, so that what remains of the picture becomes the whole picture. That's how I used the word. You spoke of deleting part of a picture...

In the border between main window and sidebar, in middle height, there is a small button. By clicking on it you open and close the sidebar.

Re: Is is possible to delete old, original text or graphics when adding to & editing an old pdf?

As far as I can see it is not possible to crop a picture directly in FlexiPDF. A right-click on a picture (Object tool selected) gives in the context menu the option Image > Edit with... to open the picture with an external graphics program, e.g. Paint, crop it there and replace the original picture...

Re: Is is possible to delete old, original text or graphics when adding to & editing an old pdf?

The assumption in my first answer was wrong; it's not a matter of being in Outline view accidentally. It's all done in Preview view, though. (Preview view shows all objects in the PDF: text, images, graphic objects etc; Outline view gives only the sheer text, all other objects are shown as outlines ...
