Document not displayed correctly in Word but appears correctly in Textmaker

Post by Levente » Tue Jul 26, 2016 6:37 pm

I created a document from stratch in Textmaker (rev. 758.0608) that I saved in .doc and .docx format. I forwarded the document to someone, but it appeared incorrectly in Office 2003: the content was not broken into pages instead all the content was displayed on the first page. Attached please find the document.

I can confirm that issue and informed the developers. I will report here as soon as we have a solution. Thank you!

The document contains a table with a single row spreading over 6 pages. There's an option in Word and TextMaker to allow splitting of rows onto multiple pages. This is not set. But TextMaker sees that the table row doesn't fit without a page break and ignores it while MS Word respects the flag.

Workaround: Call Table/Row Properties, enable "Allow page break in Row", then save as .doc again. (you must do this for the existing document, patching TextMaker will not help with the existing document).

Sven, thank you for the response, this workaround solved the problem. I think, it would be wise to have the checkbox checked as a default setting.

Sven, can you please try this:
- check the checkbox and save the document, then close it.
- open the document see the checkbox. It is checked. (That's ok)
- UNCHECK the checkbox then save the document, then close it.
- open the document and see the checkbox. It is still checked, though you unchecked and saved the document before. Shouldn't the checkbox still be unchecked?

I could not reproduce that behavior here and will send you a hotfix via PM.
