Uncompromising compatibility

TextMaker 2016: Uncompromising compatibility

Perfect interaction with Microsoft Word

You will not find any other word processing program which is as compatible with Microsoft Word as TextMaker 2016. Both the old .doc files (Microsoft Word 6.0 and higher) and the modern .docx files from Word 2007 to 2016 are displayed true to the original and saved reliably. This guarantees trouble-free data exchange with Word users.

Equally, OpenDocument, RTF and HTML files can be edited. TextMaker also exports your documents to the universal PDF format at the touch of a button or creates an e-book in EPUB format for you.

Universally applicable

Ideally equipped for all tasks – privately, for your studies and vocationally

TextMaker 2016 gives you the desired results fast and effectively:

  • Daily correspondence is handled quickly using time-savers such as the automatic takeover of contact data from the address book and the easy to use mail merge function. Labels and envelopes are created just as easily.
  • Business documents can be processed individually by you, or thanks to Word-compatible tracking of changes and comments, in teamwork with colleagues – no matter whether they work with TextMaker or Microsoft Word.
  • You navigate through long texts quickly with the comfortable side bar and structure them with the integrated outline view.
  • For scientific essays, you can use functions such as footnotes and endnotes, bibliographies, cross-references, image captions, as well as indexes, tables of contents and tables of figures.

Powerful language tools

Excellent help for error-free text and the right words

Straight away when typing, the powerful spellchecker checks your texts for spelling mistakes – not only in English, but in more than 75 languages.

The integrated ten-language thesaurus helps you find the right words and the automatic hyphenation splits words in 33 languages.

SoftMaker Office Professional also incorporates Berlitz dictionaries for English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.

A team player

TextMaker 2016 is team-ready

Do you work on a document together with colleagues? TextMaker 2016 follows and tracks all changes which you make to a document. Later, you can either accept or reject these changes, no matter whether you work with TextMaker or Word.

Equally, you can insert comments,, which appear – just as in Word – as balloons in the right-hand margin, consecutively numbered and timestamped.

Design effectively

TextMaker 2016: Design effectively

Tremendous design options

You can place graphics, drawings, text frames etc. freely in the document with the unique object mode. You can not only crop images directly in TextMaker 2016, but also liven them up with diverse effects such as soft shadows, mirror effects, 3D rotations or attractive photo frames.

With master pages, you can watermark each page or place repeated graphics objects in your document. And the integrated TextArt function lets you create flashy slogans within seconds.
