Check/fix spelling used to require "connecting" to one of the Open Office suites. Now it's stand-alone.
Great improvement, isn't it? A new build that allows quickly adding words with unknown spelling to the User.dic is on its way:
Does this mean I can disconnect Writer without missing out on other features?
I have indeed closed the connection to OO because:
- I didn't like OO starting in the background every time I started CafeTran.
- I didn't like to run CafeTran in 32-bit mode.
Since then I haven't experienced any problems.
Unfortunately, for one recurring job, Word:mac performs better for saving and showing the source text than Writer
Not sure what you mean here: Do you mean that converting from DOCX to ODT does cause layout problems?
Can I still "preview" my translation, or export the project as TXT/HTML/TMX without Writer connected?
For the TMX part I can confirm that already. TXT and HTML I didn't check yet.
Can I connect to Word:mac?
To use Word as a preview editor, like OOw can show you the source segment in context? Well that would be a nice feature ...
