I downloaded TextMaker and it looks like a really good, clean app, mid-way between Beaver and Abi, like Kword. But my whole system has crashed both times I've opened it up. Haven't as yet installed it on another pc as a comparison. Anyone else had probs?

Johm Murga's new 50mb package uses Textmaker, so maybe he'll have an answer.........although I don't think there's going to be a problem with it or he would have used something else.

Could be a download error. Did you verify the download?
( also, what version Puppy are you using? )

You are of course completely correct Wink

TextMaker has so far been solid as a rock for me.

I've got Murga's 1.0.1 Opera Puppy. Textmaker loads quick enough there is no point in Beaver. I now am just using Textmaker and Leafpad. Though AlienX posted Dotpup for Katoob and I installed it. Its closest to Beaver i guess. I like it better than Beaver. But again dont need it. Leafpad and textmaker are enough.

I think Textmaker is great. Who needs a spellchecker given the time it wastes and the lack of accuracy?

I'm hoping someone one day can give an answer to Abiword's curly quote problem before I can ever use that program. Curly quotes are easy to enable in OpenOffice, Kword and Textmaker, but not Abiword.
