can't save file with ä or ö in filename

Makes me remember the good(?) old days of MS-DOS 3.3 :)
A minor issue, but it would be great if that could be fixed some time in the future

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

Holy mackerel, it works! Thanks, martin-k, I just wish that someone had told me this earlier! I get a warning which I guess can be disregarded: (process:28031): Gtk-WARNING **: 19:47:57.949: Locale not supported by C library. Using the fallback 'C' locale. I've added the line to the /usr/bin/textmak...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

Until now we could not reliable reproduce the issue with the accented characters here. Not even with KDE (it seems most users who report this issue use KDE). It would be nice to have more detailed information about the affected systems because not all information can be found in the sminfo.txt or o...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

Well, the compose key issue is one thing. SM's weird behavior (in Linux) when it comes to accented characters (the OP topic) is another. A paid-for, commercial programme that's 'intuitive to use' and 'seamlessly compatible' should just work. Even if accents are very rare in German (SM's 'native lang...

Re: Problem with Brazilian Portuguese characters

The very same problem is present for (some) users of SM2016: http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=260&t=16658 It persisted in the 2018 Beta version, I reported it here on the forum but it never received a comment from the developers: http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=294&t=17394 This ...

accented characters

trying out FreeOffice 2018 I notice that the issue I reported testing the 2018 beta hasn't been solved - see http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=294&t=17394 It's one of the main reasons why I have refrained from upgrading my Office 2016 (which is also affected). It would be good to know if th...

Re: Can't type any accented char in french

@Michael Uplawski: It's not my file manager that is affected. It is Softmaker's menus/windows for opening/saving files that cannot display the Swedish letters å, ä, ö if I start the program after first giving the export LANG=sv_SE command. It is thus within Softmaker the problem appears. If all my o...

Re: Can't type any accented char in french

Update to previous post: I found the topic regarding the Czech user mentioned by Kevlar. Indeed, starting TM with export LANG=sv_SE textmaker16 got the accents working properly. However, then all files/folders containing locale letter such as ä and ö no longer shows up correctly when opening/saving ...

Re: Can't type any accented char in french

No reply/solution from developers? I have exactly the same problem although not that serious since we don't use accents that often in my language (Swedish). And the tréma (") doesn't show up at all. No problems with accents in OpenOffice or plain text editors or browsers. I know that the same issue ...

Re: Internet connection needed for every start up

Hooray, Service Pack 757 solved this issue for me! =D> It took three attempts until my license key was accepted, but then it worked. Unfortunately this SP once again changed all file icons to SM's "flashy" design, taking some time to get rid of - but that's a minor issue. Very happy that I now can r...

Re: Internet connection needed for every start up

SM2016 for Linux is now 4 months old but the Internet connecion issue is still lacking an official solution (update, service pack). I would appreciate some transparency on this. Users receive PMs and e-mails, but we other users have no clue what information is shared or whether this private communic...

Re: Version without reference to 32-bit libraries planned?

As GRH writes, the Softmaker team's position is understandable. However, 64bit Linux distros are becoming more and more common. Even if many of us (I among them) have no particular need for the peformance improvement but are perfectly happy running 32 bit systems, maintenance of 32 bit program versi...

Re: Internet connection needed for every start up

Problem persists for me, too. What's different from what unhappy_customer writes is that product key is requested even without reboot - it's enough to close Softmaker, disconnect from the internet and then try to restart Softmaker. I first simply updated, using the tgz installer which I always have ...
