Starting where I left off[SOLVED]

Post by vikingson » Fri Oct 13, 2017 11:52 pm

Textmaker doesn't appear to be able to open a document where I left off even after making changes and saving the docx document. Is there a setting for this or does Textmaker not do this?

With respect, what you are saying does not make sense. When you save a document, the latest editing done on it should be part of that document when you open it again. I suggest that you describe the steps you took to save a document, then closed the document or exited the program, and then opened the same document again. Perhaps we can then see what causes your problem. I have experienced a problem with the way MS Word displays a .docx file originally saved with Textmaker, and tend to use the .doc (Word 2003-97) format for that reason. But I have never seen the problem you describe.

In LibreOffice when you open a document you have been working on it automatically takes you to the last place in the doc you were working on. Softmaker doesn't appear to do that.

Thanks! I'm guessing there is no setting to have it automatically do this when you open a doc you were working on?

Check this checkbox, and it does exactly what you want.
