Ho ho ho,
CafeTran Espresso 2017 Harbinger aka Release Candidate 3 is available for download. The update can be performed via the Drag & Drop procedure as follows:
1. Run CafeTran.
2. Download 20161222_update.zip file from here (do not unzip or rename the file after downloading) and place it on your desktop.
Note: On Mac OSX, the Safari web browser may unzip the file automatically after downloading. To prevent this, just use the right-click menu and choose the "Download Linked File" command.
3. Drag and drop the downloaded file into the Project Dashboard and restart the program.
Alternatively, you can install the update via the Update button in the Help > About panel instead of dragging and dropping.
I preferred the "cafe" theming on the top of the dashboard, but this is a matter of personal aesthetics.
On a more objective note, would it be possible to improve the buttons display (Open Project & Start a new project) ? On my installation, they are transparent and inherit the dashbord background.
This also occurs when choosing to Add a new document.
See the attached screenshot
>I preferred the "cafe" theming on the top of the dashboard, but this is a matter of personal aesthetics.
Yes, I really liked it. Made CafeTran standing out.
And the tab-at-bottom option looks wonderful.
Thanks for the feedback! I have just uploaded another build with small visual Dashboard's corrections and sticky (kept across sessions) option for the bottom tabs placement. As for the Dashboard's coffeehouse theme, it's back until I take a photo of another coffeehouse.
>New Term/Fragment dialog got a button to add a new entry without closing the dialog.
Long awaited, highly appreciated.
For me it would be useful if clicking on New term wouldn't delete the content of the source and target box (even when adding them to the glossary): this would allow me to easily add similar entries (like plurals that cannot be entered via selection or dash variants):
Nice to see that you're still giving CafeTran a try!
Please use this menu to toggle the QuickViewBar:
Duh, Quick search bar

Yes, it will be possible soon via holding CTRL key.
Just a quick note about the Edit menu. The vast majority of programs (especially editors) keep all the search/find related actions under the EDIT menu - yes, even the display of the search toolbar. You are right it may have nothing to do with the edition but I believe it is there for historical reasons.
>Um, it's really not "duh".
You couldn't know this, but the 'duh' was a kind of mental note to myself, because after having posted my reply, I noticed that the bar isn't called QuickViewBar but Quick search bar.
So I'd say that my attitude towards trainees isn't involved here.
Anyway, I wish you a Merry Christmas!
In connection with this, I'd like to request additional buttons on the New Term/Fragment panels. Holding CTRL key might be a good idea, but such a feature must be documented somewhere simply because no one would try it unless they know it's available.
So, "visible" buttons should be better; they can speak for themselves.
My proposal is to add the following buttons.
Add & Clone (to retain the current content to add a more or less similar term/fragment pair)
Add & Clear (to clear the current content to add a completely different term/fragment pair)
Add & Close (to add the current content and close the panel)
