I’ve just released Felix version 1.2. This is a major upgrade with several improvements:
- Share memories over a network
- “Translate to fuzzy” command for PowerPoint interface
- Toolbar for Excel interface
- Zoom function for memory and glossary windows
See below for details about each new feature.
Share memories over a network
In order to use this feature, you’ll need to install Memory Serves, a free program to share Felix memories over a local network.
Once you have Memory Serves running, copy the connection string for the desired memory/glossary, and then from Felix, select File >> Connect… (you can do the same thing from the glossary window).
The Connection Dialog appears. Copy in the connection string, and click OK.
Now you should be able to use the networked memory just like an ordinary Felix memory.
“Translate to fuzzy” command for PowerPoint interface
This command will automatically translate all segments in the current PowerPoint file until a non-perfect, or “fuzzy” match is found. This is useful when you have a document with a lot of repetitions.
To use the command, from the menu bar select Felix >> Translate to fuzzy.
Toolbar for Excel interface
Now the Excel interface has a tool bar like the Word and PowerPoint interfaces, allowing quick access to common Felix commands.
Zoom function for memory and glossary windows
Use Ctrl + Mouse Wheel to increase/decrease the size of the text in the memory and glossary windows. If the zoom doesn’t work, click the title bar of the desired window to make sure it’s in focus.
