Re: Paragraph line spacing

I am not quite sure if I got this right: 1. Does this mean the last paragraph must not stand alone on the last page, so that there are at least two paragraphs on the last page? 2. Does this mean that between (all) paragraphs there should be a spacing big enough to make the last paragraph on each pag...

Re: Moving/Transferring from MS Office Excel and Word

Word and Excel files can be opened seamlessly by TextMaker and PlanMaker respectively. Only macros are not supported.

Re: Spell Check

When you select your text, right-click and go to "Character...", which language has the text?

Also, when you go to Tools > Options..., tab "Language", "English (United Kingdom)" should be the default language.

Re: Modify database structure, import data

I see. Snowshed and I didn't realise that the asterisks have to be in squared brackets, too.
Thanks for helping, Sven.

Re: Modify database structure, import data

Oh sorry, I was still in TextMaker mode and didn't realise it was about the forum.

Yes, I have exactly the same problem. Looks like a bug in the phpBB forum software.

Re: Modify database structure, import data

The field names from the original database are now displayed in the fields of the first record. Original data in the first record are not displayed. Reopening the dbf file in PlanMaker is as it should be. When saving the dbf file in Planmaker, check "First row contains field names". Is it just me, ...

Re: How to remove a page?

Are you sure there is no additional page break or empty paragraph at the end of your document? By clicking the button with the paragraph sign in the icon bar you can make them visible.

Re: Modify database structure, import data

First answer: Upgrade to TextMaker 2018. In this version the option to modify the structure of existing databases was added. Second answer: AFAIK there is no way to merge databases directly in TextMaker; but see next answer. Third answer: As long as it is standard .dbf, the output of any program ca...

Discontinuous text selection is on the wishlist, but not yet implemented in TextMaker.

Re: Command button to open a translation website

As online dictionary for single words and phrases I use the excellent https://dict.leo.org/german-english/ It has eight languages (but unfortunately Dutch is lacking) and gives gender and plural forms for all nouns where appropriate. A toolbar icon to open this website directly from TextMaker can be...

Re: Paragraph borders

I cannot reproduce this specific issue, but something is definitively fishy with the border function. What I did: 1. Create a new document with two single line paragraphs. 2. Set the cursor somewhere in the first paragraph, go to Format > Paragraph..., tab "Borders", and set a single line border (0....

Re: Command button to open a translation website

For single word translations you could use the Berlitz dictionaries which are part of SoftMaker Office Professional.

Re: Paragraph borders

Does the style stay unchanged when you save as tmdx? If so, this could be a docx compatibility issue.
