I’ve just released version 1.3 of Align Assist.
Wow, has it really been a year since version 1.2 was released? I had been neglecting Align Assist for a while, but fortunately some Align Assist users gave me good feedback, and spurred me to make some improvements. There are still a few things on my list, but I want to release the improvements so far now.
This is a good example of how the best way to get new features in your software is to tell the developers that you want them!
Below are the main improvements in this release.
1. Default settings for TMs and records
You can now set default values for translation memories and records. To set default values, in the Align window, from the Tools menu, select Defaults.
These default values will be saved in your Felix TM.
2. “Move To” command
There is now a Move To command on the context menu. Right click a cell and select Move To from the menu, then enter a row number to move a cell to an arbitrary row.
3. Improved Split function
The Split function (for splitting a segment into two segments) is now easier to use. Instead of cutting and pasting the text to split, you can just click in the text box where you want the segment to be split. The segment will be split at the location of the cursor.
