[IGNORE Solved in 2021] TextMaker still misinterprets white-space between tags.

Post by Michael Uplawski » Sun Jun 21, 2020 7:34 pm

I like the 2021 version of SoftMaker Office. This is the test-version S1014.0529.

Of course, I am looking into the bugs which I had reported for Office 2018. In the attachments, you find two ODT files, one of which differs in the formatting of content.xml. The result is a false alignment in TextMaker.

LibreOffice still ignores the extra white-space between XML-tags, as it should be, and both documents look identical. TextMaker does it wrong. I have not tested extra white-space inside text-nodes, as it must be ignored as well (and was not in 2018).

PSE correct this bug as it complicates the work with the xml-code of future ODT documents.

TIA.

Please check the screenshots of the file in TextMaker and LO. Please share details of the problem which "false alignment in TextMaker" and " extra white-space" you mentioned.

Thanks

@SuperTech and all.

I have tried for half an hour, to reproduce the behavior which I had originally described in the German speaking forum AND CAN NO MORE. Ergo. It looks like
  1. The original bug is either corrected or cannot be reproduced - which may be the same thing.
  2. My example-files in the OP are corrupt and non-representative. Although they document how I used to produce beautified XML, then where unable to make them appear correctly in TextMaker, the differences from the original 1-liner XML file are quite obviously not responsible for any false alignment or lateral margins.
To my shame, I admit that I might have confused the two versions of TextMaker, i.e. 2018 ad 2020, and have no other explanation for the observations made in the first article in this thread. Let me fall back to the conclusion in the German thread that I will not make any more comments about the ODF support in SoftMaker Office.
