Full Version: Textmaker Review

TextMaker is a truly excellent word/document processor; I just posted a (belated) review on bargainPDA, with a fair number of screen shots and so on.

If you want the tool I used to make the GIF animations, I can post that too, but it's just a wrapper for imagemagic - it really takes the work out of manually rotating, GIFfing and combining all those BMPs!!

Best Regards
Ian.

I tried that software but it was not that good. It wouldn't let me enter anything besides English and kept crashing when I tried to use the handwriting recognition software to enter Japanese characters. sad.gif

If you only need it for English it is quite nice.

You're right about not being able to enter Japanese. Attempting to use the handwriting recognition for Japanese didn't crash my 860 though - nothing happened at all, and the program was fully responsive afterwards.

Reinstalling the program stopped it crashing but I can't type in Japanese no matter what I do. huh.gif

It's probably just not aware of Unicode. simplifies the coding, but kinda kills the target market.

I found a file in the home directory on my 860 from Textmaker. It specifically says it doesn't support Japanese, Chinese, or Korean, as it doesn't support 2 byte character encoding.

Doesn't bother me too much - I use zeditor for what little Japanese editing I do.
