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.

Re: Insert Pictures

TextMaker inserts all images with their original resolution, so I suppose that FastStone defined the resolution as 300 dpi. For a screen capture, this is obviously wrong. I don't know anything about FastStone Capture - maybe there is an option to define output resolution?

Re: Insert Pictures

No, it isn't. The "preview" effect is somewhat baffling at first sight, but in fact the image is inserted in original size into the printed document; it is only on screen that it looks much smaller, because you don't see the TextMaker document in its original size on screen. In your above posting th...

Re: .BAK files

1) Go to Tools > Options , tab "Files", and you'll find the backup options at the bottom of the box. The default setting is "Simple Backup" (one .bak file per document in the document folder), but in the dropdown list you can choose either "No backup" or "Advanced backup" which gives you options to ...

Re: Save toolbar configurations and preferences for future sessions?

IIRC the free version lacks the option to customize the toolbars. This is a feature of the full version only.

Re: How do I compile a document with some portrait and some landscape pages?

Insert a chapter break (Insert > Break > Chapter break). Each chapter can have its own page format in TextMaker.

Re: Interface Color

Unfortunately not. TextMaker 2018 offers only a light and a dark interface for the classic menus. I regret this, too.
