Really?! Off topic spam much?

On a second screen it tries to ask for your address and phone number and more.-TaoPhoenix (December 18, 2012, 09:09 PM)

So it can pre-fill templates with either your personal or business info - stops asking after the second run, (here anyway).

So how is the company making profit from this, is it ad based?-Tinman57 (December 18, 2012, 08:41 PM)

Depends what you mean by ad-based - the sidebar Tao is complaining about shows tips/tricks and sometimes describes how it would be done/easier in the commercial version but it doesn't download anything from the net to do it - it's all in files installed at the same time as the program.
If you let it, it will update the files when new versions become available but other than that there's no ads.

If you don't like the commercial plugging go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SoftMaker FreeOffice\inst\banners and delete the three directories.  Do the same at %APPDATA%\SoftMaker\banners.

Or edit the PNG files to remove the references to the commercial offering to retain the tips.

Or substitute your own PNG files if you want more tips/porn/whatever.

Your details are saved locally - then when you open a template (e.g. letter), your details will be automatically filled in. I love that myself :up:
There's also a database where you can fill in details of other people you regularly write to - havent used that one much.

I'd highly recommend it, but this one does have the disadvantage of not being able to open the more recent MS office formats.

Over the years I've gotten various free versions and a couple of paid ones too - mostly via Ashampoo & then upgrade to the Softmaker version. I get very little mail - update notifications and occasional upgrade offers for older versions.

hehehe.  Looks like ol' lukebrown got his spam message blown away.  Nothing I love more than smokin' spam.   :Thmbsup:

I think the profit is from many popular sites mentioning SoftMaker's office suite.
Their free 2008 office suite was a great deal too.
Replaced now with SoftMaker Free Office.
