How do I get my old Textmaker 2017 interface back?

Post by ecbritz » Sun Aug 25, 2019 8:30 pm

I installed Softmaker 2018 on a new computer today and discovered that I could not use it because I had forgotten how to change the interface back to the old interface I know so well and use with such ease on different computers. I can't even find the "help" button. Kindly tell me how to return to the old interface, I would appreciate that very much.

I found the answer by searching the forum. A great relief!

The first question each program asks is which user interface you want to use.

Yes, I am aware of that but I mistook one of the 2018 interface options for the traditional interface, and then discovered that I had forgotten how to undo my choice. We have bought various Softmaker versions and also FlexiPDF in our household and we are all very happy with it. I have no objection to the 2018 interface options. If a new (or old) customer learns to use it, it probably becomes second nature to him or her and works just as well as the traditional interface. But frankly, for someone familiar with the old interface it does not seem to offer anything extra, anything other than obscurity and annoyance. Thankfully the support forum is always willing and able to throw out a life belt. This forum plus the other support functions are highly regarded and appreciated.
