Re: How do I define the default settings of a numbered paragragh?

How do I change the DEFAULT settings of a numbered paragraph? When I do Format > Bullets and Numbering > Bullets and Simple Numbering > Numbering > Horizontal position, no default setting seems possible, I always get .63 cm. How do I set another measurement as default? I have to second ecbritz here...

Re: The correct way to customise numbered lists?

This shouldn't occur. Probably there is some older formatting in the way somewhere. Can the problem be solved by selecting the whole document (with Ctrl+A), then invoking Format > Bullets and Numbering..., tab "Bullets & Simple Numbering", and setting the horizontal position to 1.25 cm? In the attac...

Re: The correct way to customise numbered lists?

I just noticed that the Cascading Outline File I found in my downloads folder wasn't posted by you but by another user in the TextMaker HD forum. Anyway, maybe it can be useful in some way. Sorry for mixing this up.

Re: The correct way to customise numbered lists?

I have had a closer look at your sample files now. As for the Cascading Outline file, my advice for producing such a file would be: 1. Don't tamper with the page or paragraph borders (horizontal ruler); keep them where they are. 2. To set the standard tab distance to 1.25 cm, go to Format > Tabs... ...

Re: Any auto-correct, auto-replace or shortcut-to-character-replacement available?

TextMaker has both options. The auto-correct function (e. g. -- to en-dash) is available via Insert > SmartText... Click "New...", insert as "Name of SmartText entry" what you want to type (two dashes), then type or paste into in the big field what shall appear in the document (en-dash). Check that ...

Re: The correct way to customise numbered lists?

To illustrate a few points, I have attached a sample questionnaire. My workflow was as follows: First, I wrote down the complete text, regardless of format. Only after this was done I started with the formatting. The questionnaire part (below the heading) is formatted as a hierarchical numbered list...

Re: The correct way to customise numbered lists?

I'm not quite sure if I understand your question correctly. In my experience, the automatic formatting of numbered lists in TextMaker leaves almost every formatting option open ("almost" only because it is not possible to right-align the numbers): left and right indentation, distance between number ...

Re: Unclear date options + Is a default date format possible?

ecbritz, I didn't yet reply to your question as I did some testing first, too. As far as I see, there are actually five (or six) ways to insert a date into a TextMaker document: 1a. Insert > Date/Time... inserts the current date as normal text. It can be edited later just like any other text. 1b. If...

Re: Turning off automatic hyphenation

Yes, obviously something is wrong here. C:\Users\[username]\Documents\SoftMaker\Templates 2016 is the template folder created and used by a standard installation of SoftMaker Office. C:\Program Files (x86)\SoftMaker Office 2016\inst\mydoc\Templates 2016\English is a folder which is only used when re...

Re: Turning off automatic hyphenation

Changing Normal.tmv is the right thing to do, but as it seems, something has gone awry with your template folders. Have a look at Tools > Options... , tab "Files": on top, there is a field "Template folder". TextMaker stores all your templates in the folder indicated there. Check if this is the fold...

Re: How do I change the position of quotation marks?

Tools > Options.., tab "Language". In the lower right corner there is a dropdwon list "Smart quotes". Choose "English" or "None" for straight marks. Probably yours are set to "German" or to "Auto" (automatically adjusted to the language used).

Re: links

Hi Don, TextMaker (I suppose this is the program you write your sales letters with) doesn't activate links automatically; it has to be done manually. Proceed as follows: 1. Select the URL (or any other portion of text you want to link) with the mouse. 2. Go to Format > Link... 3. Insert the URL into...
