Carsten, I'd like to have tried out Preview 4 of Calimero v3.7, but . . . .

So, when you get this issue fixed let me know, and I'll try it out once more. It is very frustrating getting your software and having these issues with them virtually each time, but I'm a patient guy . . . . so I'll be waiting to hear back from you.
I should also say to you that I have used TurboCalc, PageStream, Datastore, Wordworth, Final Writer, MSWord, OpenOffice, well you may have already got the picture - I know how to click a mouse button, and move about a page of a document or spreadsheet, or table, BUT Calimero is not in the same league as those programs as it stands.
It has potential, but it is not being realised at the moment.
The most important thing for a program that handles text is to get the text-handling correct before anything else, and then, and only then, move onto other features that you want to implement, one-at-a-time.
Then, get each one working correctly, ideally with feedback that it is working correctly from lots of users, or at least from ones you know you can trust . . . . before adding in something else to over-complicate the program and make it buggy for any user. That is IMHO.
