Won't do right hand tabs

Post by bobdanker » Tue Apr 09, 2013 1:23 am

I have a Word document that contains an outline with cascaded numbering
    I.
    A.
    1.
    a. etc.
    All the numbers are right justified at the period. When I open this kind of file in TM, the outline paragraphs do not line up in the way that they do in Word. This indicates to me that right hand tabbing is not included in TM at this point. I doubt that centered tabbing is included either. I need this feature for the documents that I create/edit. I hope it will be included in the near future.

    Please enable or disable "Wrap text" in the View menu. Does it help?

    No, it does not help. I have attached a file (Word document) that I tried to open in TM for Android. It does not display correctly. The attached Word document contains styles but is not based on a Word template. The Android Office suite named OfficeSuite does open the file and display it correctly.

    It seems that the formatting of tabs and of bullets and numbering in TM for Android is not fully developed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    The problem is even reproducible for me with TextMaker for Windows. I referred that issue to our developers and will inform you as soon as I have more information. Thank you!

    Have you fixed this yet? I cannot imagine using a word processor that does not do cascading outlines correctly. TextMaker is the only word processing program that I have ever encountered that cannot set left, center, and right tabs correctly. Please fix this soon.

    It seems not to be so easy to fix and the developers are still working on that problem. I will inform you as soon as I have any news.

    What does the previous post have to do with this topic? I apologize if there is something I'm just not seeing clearly. Thanks :)

    Nothing. It was a spammer, and I just nuked his account.
