I have many English and Chinese .psw files to open. TMV 2010 opens all the English ones without a glitch. Although it says Chinese is supported (both Traditional & Simplified), it fails to decode the Chinese ones. And there is no way one can customize the encoding setting.

Does any one out there have a solution for this? If so, pls kindly let me know: kwokshsee((at)) You are very much appreciated!

I downloaded your software to view open office docs. The software downloaded and installed fine - however at first would not open a file attached to an email in my Outlook 2000. Only after saving the file to my hard drive could I open and view the file.

My daughter had sent a copy of her resume for review but had saved it with the .odt extension. Fortunately I was aware of the OpenOffice use of the extension but did not have OpenOffice installed. Google (not Bing though) sent me to your site. I downloaded and installed the file and opened the resume. The formatting was not perfect but was good enough to read and convert to a PDF file which worked perfectly. My daughter and I both thank you for having the program available for public distribution. I know there are many other people out there that would like to know about TextMaker Viewer.
Thanks again.

Very disappointing. Hard to figure out and did not do the one thing I wanted it to: create thumbnail images of Word documents that can be viewed in Windows Explorer or My Documents.

TM Viewer was easy to install and it works. Thank you! It is an extra bonus that it can export pdf files. I will suggest friends to install this viewer if they cannot or do not want to install big or expensive software.

I thank you for taking the time to contact me. I was in a state of frustation with MS when I was unable to open a document written in Office 2007 and was unable to read in MS Office 2003, since MS as usual doesn't always provide goback ability on their software. I downloaded your product when I found that MS has a Compatability pack available to correct that paticular problem. Thanks again. It is organizations like yours that keep the intest of the users as a number one priority. MS unfortunately operates similar to a telephone company designing great software for MS and not the user.

Excellent viewer, that can handle docx files. It actually is more than a viewer: you can make a pdf with it.

I downloaded your software to enable me to view pictures sent on MHTML files. I am pleased to report that it has worked beautifully. Thank you very much for making this software available to those of us who are, for the most part, software challenged!

.ODT viewer

I really needed to open some .odt files. In a first moment I tought in downloading and installing the Openoffice suite, but just to open and browse the document? In few minutes searching the web I found this application, that is small, fast and work for what I need. In this days when there are many diferent documents formats and versions, this application is a must have.

Downloaded software

Hello, I got a document with .odt extension. We are working with Microsoft softwares, and that's why I downloaded your program. The program was helpful, because I should only print the document. Thanks a lot for the software.

Worked exactly as described, downloaded it, installed it, selected the relevant application and it worked first time for ODT files.

Served my needs--opened documents created by a program I don't have (Microsoft Works). Future enhancements might include Postscript and PDF.

TM Viewer

Would like an easier way to copy text. Otherwise very pleased with it for my use which is to read odt files, copy them into a Word doc.

Really Nice Product

I was really confused when I received an .odt file. But thanks to TextMaker Viewer. Its really a wonderful software. It not only helpful for .odt file format but I also found working comfortable with other file formats I will recommend it to all of them whom I know and use computers. Thanks once again..

TextMaker Viewer to the rescue!

You know the problem: someone send me an attachment without an extension. That Someone went on holiday, and I couldn't figure out what format the file was. After a while, I suspected an Open Office file, but how could i know, without installing the whole suite? TextMaker Viewer did the trick: it displayed the files' content, so I could get on with my work. Best wishes to TextMaker Viewer's makers, and a salute to all those anonymous programmers that keed finding solutions for all those small but vital problems that keep popping up in our digital era.

textmaker viewer - great product

I had not even heard of an ODT file until received one yesterday. Downloaded textmaker viewer. No problem. Looking forward to checking out what else it can do.

mouse right click

Hi, the software worked fine for what I would like to use (OpenOffice document viewing). One notice: should be nice to imlememnt the usual mouse right click popup menu (with copy, paste, ... usual stuff) on text selections. Szabolcs Jaray - Hungary

It did what it said it would first time and without any fuss or bother. It's going to be a very handy piece of software.

TextMaker Viewer - Very Good

I like TM Viewer because I can preview Openoffice Writer documents with it. Not many software programms can do that. And it's quite fast. Thank you.

As easy as pie and just as good!

Textmaker Viewer 2006 was easy to install and worked like it said it would. I have no idea if there is an uninstaller with this program but it doesn't matter as I'll never uninstall it. Worked right out of the box - it even changed the necessary file associations for me,after it asked if I wanted it to. Thank you for a great program, for me it was a "life-saver".

Pro And Con

Slick user interface.
Can view many type of documents.
Small footprint and fast.
Printing dithering may not good enough
for low resolution printer. (Dot-Matrix).

Worked well

I needed an application that would let me look at some old word processed files that I had transferred to a new PC where OpenOffice wasn't installed. TextMaker Viewer did the trick -- easy to install and use.

CapZap 2007-03-20 14:46:44 #

Very fast

This is just what I needed to view open document format text files. Very small footprint and very fast. Much better product than two or three other odt viewers I've tried. It's time that Microsoft and Corel get with the program and provide open document support because it's here and it's going to be adopted by ever more governmental entities as the public standard.

UI comments.

I like the zoom function, but a few observations off the top of my head.

1. With the mouse context button action to copy disabled, the C-c command should also be blocked to synchronize. Alternatively, the mouse context menu should be enabled.

2. The toolbar button allows toggle of the Vertical Ruler, and the Horizontal Ruler. But the menu only allows toggle of the Horizontal Ruler. Why does the menu not have a toggle function for the Vertical Ruler?

3. The help button in the file open dialog should display a meaningful message for the 'Quick Path' button.


p.s. Please consider removing the headline 'These are the mistakes' in the post preview.

Works but I have a Recomendation

For my use it worked. I was able to view the file I wanted. The only thing I wasn't able to do was have it automatically convert the text to a new fromat as selected when clicking send. I copied and pasted into MSWord instead so that worked. My only real need was to view and transfer an OpenOffice document to MSWord without having OpenOffice.
