Sorry, I decided to stay with Apple's Mail, so I didn't install EM Client.

Re: can't input left and right quotes

In the German forum, a user recommended MultiLing Keyboard (free app in Google Play Store) for typing left and right quotes.

Re: iPhone sales are estimated to reach 10 millions soon

Well, Apple of course tries to promote its own Pages app, which is about the only halfway decent word processor for iOS. I don't say Pages is a bad app, but its philosophy is so different from what we are used to in word processor gui's that it is not so easy to adjust to. TextMaker offers more poss...

Re: TextMaker for OS X

I regret SoftMaker's decision not to develop for OS X (or iOS, for that) as much as you do, but with a staff of 37, they obviously are already at their limits to produce and maintain their applications for Windows, Linux and Android (and again, personally I would have very much preferred an iOS vers...

Re: TextMaker for OS X

A lot of things have changed over the last years. By now, with BootCamp and Parallels Desktop available and the iPad dominating the tablet market, a version for iOS would be much more needed than a version for Mac OS X. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Metro UI, Windows 8, and WOA

The tendency to turn computers into "closed shops" (something you criticized in Apple's iPad before, IIRC) is rapidly becoming universal.

Re: MegaFont XXL 2.0 - For Your Information

The German text says:
“Fonts and font families labeled NEU! have been added in MegaFont XXL 2.0, fonts labeled XXL! have extended character sets (e.g. East European characters, expert symbols, typographical signs, fractions, lines and many more).”

Re: Support for Google Android mobile device operating syste

A free software platform doesn't necessarily mean all application programs have to be free also. Linux is free software, too, but SoftMaker Office for Linux isn't free.

Reminds me of the "SoftMaker anywhere" project. Obviously you were far ahead of your time back then.

Go, SoftMaker, go. Hey, you made this work on Pocket PCs, so why not on iPhones?

Re: Is Calligraphy a viable art in a world that has TextMaker?

Thank you for the link, Lance. Handmade calligraphy is a most beautiful art and will surely keep its place in the future. For the rest of us who lack this artistic gift: You can get some fine results by using the font Zapfino Extra, an astounding calligraphic handwriting font by Hermann Zapf with lo...

Re: iPhone sales are estimated to reach 10 millions soon

Well, that's what this thread is all about: Oedipus wants SM Office to become the first office suite for iPhone. An intriguing idea, but... the SoftMaker team is still tackling the (obviously quite difficult) issue of getting DataMaker working. The iPhone would be a completely new field of programmi...

I'm neither a developer nor even an owner of an iPhone, but your argumentation seems sound. iPhones are a fast growing market.

Re: Mac OSX again

NeoOffice is rather sluggish on all but the fastest Macs. Mellel is a fine program, but it's user interface philosophy is rather unusual and needs some time and experience to become comfortable.

Re: Amazon web site

SoftMaker can offer highly competitive prices for their software because they sell directly to their customers. Shopping at SoftMaker's website is as easy as shopping at Amazon's. So why pay more just for the sake of Amazon's profit?
