It is the same as with the previous version in terms of usability and RAM.
No, simply CONTEXT here (windows 6 layout with context segments activated)

This is still from CafeTran Espresso 2018 Akua Update 12, but really nice:
I must confess I wondered a moment what CXT means …
Is this version "usable" in Mavericks? Ie. is it heavier from the current one and how much free RAM do you recommend?
Just one thing on the Autopilot function. In files that include only-number translation units, for instance "12", CT stops longer than, for instance, single-word translation units such as "Coverage".
Perhaps number-only segments should be excluded from the Autopilot, or the stopping time calculated as if numbers were characters?

In Java, some font types may be displayed correctly within some size range. If you need such big fonts, try Verdana, for example.
Sorry for the lack of information. It is on Mac, I changed the font via VIew > Font and it seems to happen for me with all font sizes from 24 upwards in Helvetica.
> Another thing...
Did you try changing the font via the View > Font menu? Is it on Mac, Linux or Windows?
Perfect. Thanks for getting back to me so soon.
Another thing I have noticed, not just in this build: if you work with a bigger font (say. 25) in the segment editor, die two dots of capitalized Umlaute Ä, Ö, Ü stick to their position in the line even if the word itself is moved by adding/deleting parts of the sentence. Not a big deal but confusing at times :)
> it's just off by one segment
Yes, this is confirmed and being fixed for the next build soon. Stay tuned. Thanks.
It doesn't have anything to do with my setup. Working on a MacBook Pro 15 (2017) with a 120 Mbit cable connection. CafeTran itself runs as smoothly as ever. It's not a random delay caused by a lack of speed, the functionalities kick in virtually instantly when the autopilot changes segments, it's just off by one segment.
PS: This might be easier to handle if there was a state "edited" for segments as in many other tools …
