I’ve just released version 1.0 of Align Assist.
I’d like to give special thanks to Align Assist user Kokoro Hyman, who suggested most of the improvements in this version. Here are the main improvements from the last version:
- Open Felix memories and glossaries
- A save menu makes it easy to select the file type to save
- Alignment window status bar shows number of rows and columns
- Alignment window title bar shows file name, if any
- Bug fix: Save dialog button was “Open” instead of “Save”
Details about the improvements follow:
1. Open Felix memories and glossaries
In addition to intermediate results files, you can now open Felix memories and glossaries, and work with them in the Alignment window. In the main window, select File >> Open from the menu, and then set the file type to “Felix Memory Files” or “Felix Glossary Files”.
2. A save menu makes it easy to select the file type to save
The Alignment window now has a Save menu, with the choices Felix Memory or Intermediate File. This makes it easy to select the right file type when saving your alignment results.
3. Alignment window status bar shows number of rows and columns
The right panel of the status bar in the Alignment window shows the number of rows in the source and translation columns. This makes it easy to check, for example, that you have the same number of source and translation rows before saving your results as a Felix memory.
4. Alignment window title bar shows file name, if any
If you open an Intermediate Results file or Felix memory/glossary file, the file name will be shown in the Alignment window’s title bar. If you save your results, that file name will appear.
5. Bug fix: Save dialog button was “Open” instead of “Save”
When saving alignment results in the Alignment window, the button text of the Save dialog was mistakenly set to “Open” instead of “Save.”
