It is time to start rolling out the Forerunner (aka Preview) version of CafeTran Espresso 2019. This update and the subsequent builds this year will make up the CTE 2019 version to be released in December/January.
The update can be performed via Drag and Drop as follows:
1. Run CafeTran.
2. Download 20190105_update.zip file from here and place it on your desktop. Do not unzip or rename the file after downloading.
Note: On Mac OSX system, Safari web browser may unzip the file automatically after downloading it. Before you download the update file, uncheck the following Safari option:
Safari > Preferences > General > Open "safe" files after downloading.
3. Drag and Drop the downloaded 20190105-update.zip file anywhere in CafeTran's initial screen - the Dashboard.
Alternatively, you can install 20190105_update.zip file via the "Install Update" button in the Help > About panel instead of dragging and dropping.
Important! Please complete all your translation projects in your current CafeTran version before updating.
What's new in this update:
> Clone or Duplicate
Both are pretty good approximations. :)
> while closing the "New Term" dialog via the Close button. I should have made it clearer.
I only have a Cancel button, but closing the "New Term" dialog via the Cancel button with Ctrl pressed works in the manner described above. It even switches back.
Nice, but not intuitive. Perhaps an additional shortcut would do even better work. Or an additional button "Switch to fragment memories" / "Switch to glossaries". There is still plenty of space in these dialog boxes.
> I only have a Cancel button
Yes, it is the Cancel button (not Close).
> Or an additional button "Switch to fragment memories" / "Switch to glossaries"
Yes, that's a good idea but I need to see a broader interest in this feature to justify another UI button.

A more sophisticated but easier solution would be a change from "Cancel" to "Switch" when pressing Ctrl (and indeed propagating this feature).
> an additional button...
The additional button for switching between "New Term" and "New Fragment" dialogs has been added in the build 2018100403. After all, this new UI element is more intuitive than holding CTRL key. Context segments have been made clickable in the filtered view.

Counting from the right hand, which holds the mouse, it is last in the row and requires the longest mouse travel. The similar applies to scrollbars in apps. They are on the right-hand side because it requires less effort to reach them.
I'm working with two monitors (extended desktop), and I've just noticed (well, I *think* the behavior was different before, not sure) that when hovering a hit or the number of a TM entry, the pop-up window spans to both monitors. Because of the different resolution, the result is a confusing, I would prefer the pop-up self contained within one display. If that was the case before, please consider reverting to this behavior.
Otherwise, this is just a thought.
Attaching screenshot. The darker gray vertical line marks the separation.

Hm, I have two left-handers in my family, I have no idea how their brain processes the right-hand scroll bar. Or how they process the infos on buttons. Or how this works for RTL languages (any RTL language translator here?).
BTW: I know that in some dialogues, the order of buttons depends on the OS. Any chance to hardcode/fix this?

Another interesting approach would be that the average user might expect to find the most common buttons at the same position, e.g. the OK button left most.

>New Term Dialog can add multiple entries to the glossary - separated by the new line.
Thank you very much!
Thank you Igor for these new implementations. It's a bit convolute, but I does the job as intended.
Just one thing regarding the new "Task > TMX Memory > Remove TMX filtered units": I did a quick test and it seems that it doesn't remove the filtered segments from all the TMs attached to the project (in my case it removed them only from the ProjectTM although I selected an additional TM in the small pop-up window). Have I missed something?
