If the Export Threshold is set to 1% and the project has both commited and connected units, will there be any difference in terms of penalties once the project is imported to a TM. Given that the Aligment penalty is set to a >0 value. Will WinAlign give higher levels of penalty to a unit that's just connected compared to a unit that's has been committed? Or is it just to determine which units should be exported and which shouldn't?

WinAlign does not impact any penalty level on the segments coming from alignment.
The only penaly given is the penalty in Workbench for a user called "ALIGN!".
If you put a different user in the export from alignment, no penalty will be deducted.

The difference between confirmed and connected uint is first the level of certainity - a confirmed unit is 100% certain, a connected unit will be max. 99% certainity. When I use the function "Realign structure level" I confirm all units up to the active unit, then disconnect all non-confirmed units and realign structure level then again. So I do not have just connected units in my projects, but only confirmed.
But should you go as you describe, there will be no difference between confirmed and connected units - at least from what I know.

Best regards
