Thank you, Igor!

In this update, I noticed the Preferences windows got much bigger now, both in width and height (GTK theme).

If not intentional, could you revert the window size in a future update?


> I noticed the Preferences windows got much bigger now, both in width and height (GTK theme).

Some user with lower resolution screens complained about the options at the bottom of the Preferences window running off the view. The current proportions of Preferences are 2/3 of the screen width and 4/5 of the screen height to fit the options to all resolutions. Perhaps some resizing of this window will be possible in a future update.

Maybe that ratio could become smaller in higher resolution screens, while kept as is on lower resolution screens :-)

The new build (2018032401) of update 3 is available with the following:

Displaying match percentage for the target segments included in .mqxliff translation projects.

Please repeat the update as described in the announcement above.

This update installed automatically on Windows 10 - how do I roll back to the old version I had?? I have an urgent project and I'm now locked out of it!


@bart: make a new post under the "Report a problem" heading – Igor is more likely to see this quickly,

You could try downloading and installing an older version (e.g. Yeddi update 27 can be found here.) in the usual way.
Big caveat though: I have no idea if this works, so best to backup your installation first.


Thanks Amos. It was actually a java update issue. The latest version caused my Cafetran to reset to defaults. Nothing has been lost - except a couple of hours work. Igor has responded already.


Java 10 is here...

The new Preferences window (with scroll bars and resizable) looks quite good on my low-resoultion screen. Thanks a lot, Igor!

Now, if CafeTran could remember the size of the Preferences window after the user has resized it, everything would be perfect.
