I have a problem with the Export/Import function:
When I export a project, which is not completed, using the Export Wizard, and later re-import the ara-file, the document will be shown as completed.I have tried all sorts of things but I cannot re-open it. When I go via Cross Board, I get a message "Task already finished and will be opened in read-only mode".
What can I do to change this?

I have no problem re-opening any other tasks in my Across, so it must be something to do with the export/import procedure.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!


Across Version 5.00 i_de packge version 9
Standalone Version (task was not sent by a client but created from a doc by me)

Open the document and pre-translate May 16, 2010

Hi Kerstin,
I would open the original document and hit pre-translate ("Tools -> Vor-Übersetzung" with my german interface). Since all of your translation work is stored in the crossTank, you should get it done until the point where you stopped translating.

Hope it helps
