Re: What happened to office HD?

SoftMaker Office 2021 for Android is a new version, the replacement for SoftMaker Office HD.

If you purchased SoftMaker Office HD, you can continue to use and even install it again. We however no longer offer this old version to the public.

Re: Spell check language keeps changing

It seems you have a text that uses Japanese, but you have not turned on extended support for Asian scripts (see Options dialog). When you do that, the Character formatting dialog will change, offering to set different font for Western, Asian and Complex scripts. I think this will make clearer what i...

"Clear formatting" does indeed clear both style and character formatting in MS Word (Word 2011 for Mac anyhow).
Ah, re-checked. It depends if only a piece of text is selected or the whole paragraph. A bit non-obvious... ;-)

Re: How can I change the language of the function names?

Changing the UI language of PlanMaker to English will also change the function names to English.

If I had to guess, I would guess that you changed the default language for spell checking to English. The "dialog language" is on the Appearance ("Aussehen") tab of the Options dialog box.

Re: How to clear ALL formatting from selected text

"Clear formatting" in Word doesn't do that either. But you can apply the paragraph style "Normal" again. You could assign a hotkey to that style, so that it becomes a two-key operation: Ctrl+Space, Alt+Something.

Re: Sidebar?

Wait until the ad campaign is over on March 14.

When no promotion is running, you can hide the sidebar permanently. When a promotion is running, the sidebar opens on program launch, but you can hide it manually.

Re: Chromebooks?

I understand that this is frustrating to you, but we never planned to support Intel-based Chromebooks.

Re: Chromebooks?

Yes, we have cleaned up the compatibility settings.

It should now appear on more Chromebooks (as long as they have an ARM CPU), but will no longer appear for Intel-based Chromebooks (we cannot support a system that runs ARM code only in emulation; too much trouble in the past).

Re: Expiry Date

When Google get their sh*t together.

First they refused it because we used the word "bar" in English description. So we removed, and now they "found" it in the Finnish description. Small problem: it doesn't even use the word "bar" ;-)

Re: Access files on network?

Because we are an Office suite and not a network application or a file manager for which network access is in a reasonable feature scope.

It is really not the task of an Office suite to embed a network stack.

Re: Look up the translation of the current word is not working

We no longer include the Langenscheidt/Berlitz dictionaries in SoftMaker Office 2021 because we have the new Research button.

We just let you add this optional button if you still have the old langenscheidt.thn. It seems you found this solution :-)

Re: Expiry Date

Why did you do that when I told you we would offer nearly all features of SoftMaker Office 2021 for Android for free?

Sorry to break this to you, but Google Play offers no mechanism to sell upgrades to existing customers, not even with an in-app purchase.

Re: Chromebooks?

I did some checking in the device catalog in Google Play: User MonkeyBunker did not write which Chromebook he uses. User Jon C: The applications request a camera in their manifest, and this device doesn't have one. We'll check if we can work around it. User Jon C: As you wrote, HP Chromebook X2 is s...
