SoftMaker Office UK English

July 15, 2012 — BarryK
I created a PET of the free version of Softmaker Office 2008, back in August 2011:

The base PET package has US and UK English spell-checking, however it was reported that UK could not be selected.

Tuxtoo discovered that a file is missing from the base PET, installation of which then enabled UK English to be chosen. Tuxtoo posted a PET with the missing file:

...thanks very much for that!

I have added that missing file and uploaded the SoftMaker Office PET (12.1MB):

The docs and other languages are also available (13.2MB, 24.2MB):

There is also this little issue when using the Presentations module: if SoftMaker is ever again repackaged, renaming that file would get rid of that persistent dialog. Great package, btw... I needed to do a simple dtp task yesterday and Abiword did NOT cut it. Didn't want to download LibreO for this one task, remembered this post and was very satisfied with the software...

"Thanks, I have fixed the PET, will upload it soon. The new PETs will have "-2-" in their name.
