TextMaker Imperfections

Post by RKanarek » Tue Jan 30, 2018 11:51 pm

Greetings,

I would prefer it if TextMaker were perfect, rather than just very good. For this reason I’ve decided to finally report some bugs I’ve found, both new and old. So as to avoid littering the forum, I thought I’d put them all in this thread ‒ unless anyone has a better idea.

The first bug:
Using Format -> Chapter, one can manually set a chapter’s number, but the setting isn’t saved. See the attached file and photos for an example.

Kindest regards,
Richard Kanarek

Bonus: This forum considers the words SoftMaker and TextMaker to be spelling errors. If you have the capability, you might wish to add the names of SoftMaker's products to this forum's dictionary. ;-)

The file was saved, then reopened. Notice that chapter 3 is back to being chapter 3.

Here is a screen capture of the attached .TMDX file's chapter 3 being changed to chapter 27.

Please start a new thread for every single issue. Even if this may look like littering the forum, it helps enormously to keep things sorted. Thank you!

I can reproduce the issue with your sample file and will inform the developers. Thank you!
