1. Bug fix: Skip settings for full-width characters ignored (PowerPoint)

In PowerPoint, the setting to skip segments if they did/didn’t contain double-byte characters was ignored.

2. Remote memories/glossaries loaded on startup

Now if you select “Load previous memories/glossaries on startup” in the preferences, remote memories/glossaries will also be loaded. Felix will remember a total of 15 each of remote and local memories and glossaries (60 items total).

3. Preference files (.fprefs) include remote memories and glossaries

When you save your preferences, the preferences file (.fprefs) now includes information about remote memories and glossaries that were loaded. The next time you load that preferences file, Felix will connect to the same remote memories and glossaries. See the manual for details about connecting to remote memories.

4. The latest Trados text format for translation memories is supported

The latest Trados translaton-memory text format is supported. Note, however, that text formatting information (such as bold and italic) is currently ignored in the new format. Text formatting is still supported in the old Trados text format.

5. Bug fix: Cannot change lock property

It wasn’t possible to change the “locked” property of memories or glossaries if the current user’s account name didn’t match the creator value of the TM. This caused problems in some situations, like when the creator was “Align Assist.”

6. Preference files (.fprefs) associated with Felix

Felix preference files (.fprefs) are now associated with Felix. This means that if you double click on a preferences file, it will launch Felix, and Felix will be configured with all the settings and memories/glossaries in that file. You can also drag and drop an .fprefs file onto the Felix memory window, and Felix will load those preferences.

7. Bug fix: template files not copied over

There was a bug whereby if you already had Felix installed, and then installed an update from a different account, some templates weren’t copied over to the user’s local folder.

8. Languages picked up when importing MultiTerm glossaries

When you import a MultiTerm glossary, the source and translation languages are set as the source and translation languages of the Felix glossary.

9. When starting Felix after installation, Felix starts in the installer language

Before, when you launched Felix for the first time after installing it, Felix would start with the Japanese UI if you were running on a Japanese OS, and the English UI otherwise. Now, if will start in whatever language you chose for the installer (currently Japanese and English only).
