Re: templates save as not working?

If you simply change the font size, only the occurence in this specific place is changed. To make a permanent change, you have to change the corresponding character style via Format > Character style...

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.

Re: Copying / Moving Frames

Re: Copying / Moving Frames

That's why I wrote: "set both documents to edit/object mode". It's true you can also copy an object while in edit mode, but I preferred to keep it simple.

Re: Recently used files in File menu

Strange. I set it to 20, and the menu shows 20. I'll give it a try with 50 and look what happens.

Re: Remember on-screen locations of dialogs

I'm afraid not. At least, I would like to have this function, too, and AFAIK there is no way to achieve it.
