Improvement suggestions

Post by ArnaudK » Sun Apr 11, 2021 6:54 pm

Hi !

On my corporate computer I use extensively MS Office 365 and I noticed some features I cannot find especially on Textmaker :
  • When I copy from an external source, I can in MS Office use the destination format, source format or copy as text when I right-click on the target page. I don't find this in Textmaker
  • When there are images embed, I can in MS Office right-click on the image and save it as a file. In Textmaker, I have to go to the property of the image and click on the button export. This is one step more than in MS Office. Possible to improve this ?
  • The spell checker / grammar check is way better in MS Office and I can understand it due to the dominance of the productivity suite on the market. However, it would be nice to see in Textmaker a "blue underline like in MS Word" when there is too much space between words, or something that does not match the language policy (for instance in French, the word "Exmple:" would have been underlined in blue as the correct writing would be "Exemple :"
Thanks
