Hi there,
When starting to work with Cafetran, I somehow missed to name the translation memories (tmx) properly, so when I open Cafetran now, there are several "Project memory" / "ProjectTerms" with no specific name in this panel. I can see where they come from when putting the curser on them, but it still bothers me.
Is there a simple way of renaming them?
Thank you for your advice,
Irene

Hello Irene,

You can simply do this in the Finder. But then you'll have to remove them from the Dashboard (right mouse button) and add them again.

Remove from the Dashboard, rename and add back Jul 6

Hello Irene,

In the Dashboard, you can right click on a specific TM (or other resource) and remove it.

You can then rename it as you wish at its original location (or a new one) and add it back to the Dashboard by drag and dropping it (and choosing Open, not Edit) or with the button Add memory.

The TM will be added with the new name you gave it, and the TM options you have chosen.

---

As a side note, if you tend to use specific TMs (or other resources) depending on your clients, language pairs, project types, etc., you might want to explore the Project templates feature, which allows you to store and reuse the Dashboard and other settings.

I have attempted to describe this feature here: https://github.com/idimitriadis0/TheCafeTranFiles/wiki/5-Project-templates

Hi Hans and Jean,
Thank you so much for your answer! Sometimes I feel rather stupid and I'm very grateful for your help ...
Have a great day!

Not a side note but indeed very relevant. Project Templates are just ... great.

And, for my use, if this feature could be added:

they'd even be perfect.
