Working with Macros makes life easier for serious word processing users DavkaWriter‘s new macro editor simplifies complex and repetitive tasks, and provides you with the ability to automate many different aspects of word processing, from simple tasks to complex processes. Some useful sample macros are provided, and users can share macros with each other for even greater productivity.
You can simplify your documents by dividing your documents into chapters, each with its own title in Hebrew or English. Then, with the press of a button, create a table of contents listing all the chapters in the document, and the pages they start on. Using multiple levels, you can create a table of contents for parts, chapters, and sections. Make your page prominent by choosing from a variety of impressive styles for the table of contents layout, or customize your own.
The Auto Spell Check feature has been im-proved so that now when the spell check feature runs by default it accepts all words of tanach whether they are spelled Malei or chaser. If you come across a misspelled word, click the right mouse button over that word, and a menu of correct spelling suggestions and other options pops up. This menu includes an “Ignore All Occurrences” command, which is like the button in the spellchecking dialog. This command now takes effect for as long as the document remains open. So you won’t see that word flagged, not in your next spellchecking session, and not by the auto spell check feature.
At a loss for a better word to convey what you are trying to say? Is your document bland by repeating the same word over and over again? The English Thesaurus has been enhanced with over 10,000 new definitions, synonyms, usages, examples, and pronunciation guides, so you now have more options in word choice.
While writing you document you may decide to insert an image or open a file usually the dialog box usually opens at this time. What XP users want is that it should remember how you saw it last (whether icon, file, list etc). With this version of Davka this is now a reality. Also, the Browse buttons in the Hyperlink editing dialog, in the Insert Document dialog, and in the Mail Merge dialog have this new ability.
In the past, if you worked on a document in a newer version of Davkawriter you were unable to save the document to work in an older version. Now with version 6, there is an option to save files automatically as their original DavkaWriter versions. This way, you can work on files from someone with an older version of DavkaWriter, and he can still open them after you are done. It also can inform you if you’ve added a document element that is not supported by your friend’s version. How convenient, especially when working at different times at different computers.Shimon Lewin
