Decimal Tabs

Post by bfree380 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:54 pm

We are trying to open an rtf which has decimal tabs in it. In word, and even in TextMaker Viewer, it shows up/lines up correctly. However, in FreeOffice TextMaker, they don't line up at all properly. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks.

I've attached a sample file of what we use. The first half of the document is fine, but under expenses, it is not formatting correctly. It comes out fine in MS Word and TextMaker Viewer, but not in TextMaker. Thanks for your help.

I opened your file with MS Word 2013, TextMaker 2016 and TextMaker 218 and could not see a difference. Could you please attach a screenshot to show what exactly you mean?

The file looks good with TextMaker 2018, so please try again with FreeOffice 2018 as soon as it is available.

Okay, I just downloaded the file that I had uploaded, then opened it directly in Textmaker (rev 767.0516) and it doesn't show correctly at all on my computer. I've uploaded a snip of what it looks like, highlighting a few of the issues. you can see that the decimals aren't lining up at all when it is just a decimal without a whole number, or when there is a negative.

Thanks for you assistance.

You can change the decimal separator for your file in File=>Properties=>View from comma (,) to dot (.). this fixed the problem on my side.

It already is a decimal (period).

Please make sure that the correct decimal symbol is set in the Windows control panel (regional settings). TextMaker 2016 and 2018 both rely on these settings. If I change the decimal separator in the Windows 10 settings on my machine, it is also automatically changed in TextMaker in File=>Properties=>View.

I have verified the settings are correct.
