Re: Add dialog to save template if styles or other template meta-data or modified

I did not give you the correct path for the feature. Sorry.

It should be MAIN MENU:

Sorry again. :(

Re: Add dialog to save template if styles or other template meta-data or modified

I think that what djsmith has in mind is that he starts with a template and adds to or modifies the template styles as he works on a document. I do this all the time. Often a new project needs to have its own styles, and you do not know what you need until you work on the project. Later on you want ...

Re: Editing Restrictions for Other Users

Check the following.

Open whatever file manager you currently use (e.g., Windows Explorer).
Find your file.
Right-click on it.
Click Properties.
Look to see whether "Read Only" is checked. If it is checked, remove the check.

Maybe that will solve the problem.

Thank you for your response. I know how to insert an nonbreaking space with keystrokes and that I do not need to know a code for it. I also know that a user can display the special symbols with Ctrl+Shift+8. The reason for my original post was that I wanted to point out to you that using Alt+X after...

I have an Autocorrect option set up so that I type *( to insert the Unicode character 2015. This is very easy...

I am always a little reluctant to make a feature request, but here is a request for a simple (I think) feature that would be very helpful.

More on colors, etc.

I did some googling. The answer to my question is complicated, and goes beyond my experience and knowledge. It seems that some modern (digital/image setter) print systems can use RGB colors, but traditional offset printers do not. Also, some printing houses can do an RGB-to-CMYK conversion for you. ...

No colors except black for text, and some grays for highlighting text and for screenshots. I just wondered if the CMYK vs RGB issue was something that I needed to address, since shades of g...

Robert is, of course, correct. You cannot do vertical text in Atlantis. The use of a graphic is a good workaround, except that if you are going to publish a hard copy, the graphic rendering of text (the the caption) could be suboptimal. If you want to publish an ebook in Kindle or epub format, I do ...
