The NEW SoftMaker Office 2021 lets both beginners and experienced users swiftly achieve attractive results. The new document templates enable the effortless creation of attractive documents, while convenient functions such as automatic fold marks for letters and new DTP and drawing functions ensure professional and highly functional designs. The integrated database module for printing mail merges has been completely redesigned and now manages SQLite, XLSX, PMDX, dBASE and CSV files.

Many new features are also available when creating complex documents: The compatibility of footnotes and endnotes was increased and the functionality of tables of contents was extended. Cross references also offer numerous new referencing options within documents.

Previously in SoftMaker Office 2018 was made available for Windows, Mac and Linux, (in separate packages per operating system). The 2021 version, SoftMaker has made its licensing policy far more generous! A single purchase of SoftMaker Office 2021 will now entitle the user to install it on Windows, macOS, and Linux – on up to five (5) computers in total!


The NEW SoftMaker Office 2021 is a straight-to-the-point, no-bloat office suite that offers "out-of-the-box all-out integration" of MS Office, eliminating the annoying issues of the most common software. It is very much pretty simple to use and highly customizable. User-friendly and stylish and yet the ease-of-use is there for all! The ability to use macro commands and automation tools through an overly simplified menu that gives access to simple and more complicated features is and can cater to anyone who has a flare to have their own way with the software application. 

This is the most flexible complete suite that the user can alter or set to his preference!  SoftMaker Office 2021 won't make the user feel out of his league. It will rather make you feel that the user has used it before! The customization features will make you adapt it to how he uses any office suite and most of all it edits Microsoft Office documents as true to the original as Microsoft Office itself.

SoftMaker Office 2021, currently contains TextMaker 2021 (Word processor), PlanMaker 2021 (Spreadsheets), Presentations 2021 (Presentations), BasicMaker (macros), is the straight-to-the-point, no-bloatware suite that offers MS Office integration out of the box!

TextMaker 2021 (Word processor)

New research features have been added to the word processing program TextMaker 2021 which greatly simplify the creation of extensive scientific work. The literature management program "Zotero" is now integrated directly into the program and thus provides powerful support in terms of managing citations, bibliographies and literature sources. SoftMaker Office's research functions have also been significantly expanded elsewhere. It is now possible to search countless online dictionaries and other reference books in a wide variety of languages with just one click by means of a customizable dropdown element.

The previous versions of TextMaker 2021 already offered a unique mechanism for orientation within complex documents in the form of the "Navigator" in the sidebar. The 2021 version goes one step further! The new sidebar view with page thumbnails of the document pages assists the user when navigating documents with lots of pictures, while the new sidebar search facilitates navigating between different search results. All sidebar functions can now be arranged as desired in two sidebars.

However, SoftMaker Office 2021 not only improves navigation within a document, but also between different versions of a document: The improved version control allows users to maintain a freely selectable number of automatic backups and to return to them if necessary.

"Share feedback to SoftMaker (can be of SoftMaker 2021 product application features, customer support, or site content, etc.) and why do you want to win a SoftMaker Office Standard 2021 license?"

I'd like SoftMaker to have the capability to catch the color of a given hue or an HTML color picker so it'll be easier for the user to get the same hue / color when working in Presentations. A of the moment I use a 3rd party portable app (Just Color Picker 5) for it when I use SoftMaker Free - Presentations. I'd like to have a full-featured license by way of this contest. SoftMaker 2021 Standard is way above the free version which I use when my MS Office 2013 goes wild. Thanks SoftMaker!
