Changing default font in Textmaker 2018

Post by gabrielvirgilio » Wed Nov 29, 2017 4:46 pm

How can I change the default font for all documents in Textmaker 2018?
in this thread viewtopic.php?t=8980 say
You have to open the normal.tmv (File => open => file type "template" => normal.tmv).

but in 2018 version there is not any normal.tmv... or I don't find it in any way :(

In TextMaker 2018, there is Normal.tmvx.

But it is much easier to open Format > Character and click on "Set as default".

ok thank you, but where is the position of Normal.tmvx?
I don't find it, with any search program.

Then you should repair your installation. You are in the correct folder, but below that there should be a Templates 2018 folder.

I'm having the same problem. I want to change from Times New Roman to another font but:

1 - Trying to make the change directly in the Normal template file doesn't work.

2 - Trying to make the change in a new document, going through the respective menu and dialog boxes to apply the change to all documents based on the Normal template doesn't work and brings me the following message:

Image

It's Brazilian Portuguese for (freely translated):

Error
The file C:Users\xxxxx\Documents\SoftMaker\Templates 2018\Português\Normal.tmvx cannot be opened


It happens when TextMaker is set to Brazilian Portuguese (my mother tongue and system language). But if I set the TextMaker default language to English (US), I can make that change. So the problem has to do with the Brazilian Portuguese setup.

How to fix it? TIA.

I think I found why it's not working here. The path where the program tries to find the template file is not completely identified.

For the Brazilian Portuguese version, I think the path should be:

C:Users\xxxxx\Documents\SoftMaker\Templates 2018\Português (Brasil)\Normal.tmvx

I thought of trying a workaround by renaming the Português (Brasil) folder to Português only. But I'm not sure if it could mess with the program as whole somehow.

What do you think?

Yes, there is a discrepancy what the setup program creates and what SoftMaker Office expects: Português vs. Português (Brasil).

We have already internally corrected the error. In the meantime, you can simply rename the folder.
