Hello,
I started an alignment project on one of my computers and wanted to continue working on it on my second computer. However, when I try opening the folder on Cafetran, I'am asked to «Open document» (*.docx/x...) where I can only open one document. When I decline, I get the message «Select joined documents tab for alignment!». Where do I find this «joined documents tab»?
Thank you for your help!
Irene

Open second document Nov 12, 2019

As you transferred the project folder to your second computer, CafeTran might have lost the file path to one of the documents in the alignment workflow. That is why it asks you to Open/Choose the document from the project folder. Instead of rejecting it, just select the second document for the alignment.

Thank you, Igor Nov 12, 2019

But how do I know which of the two documents to chose? I can only chose one ... It would be quite clear if I could chose the two documents to align, but as I said I can only click on one.

Dear Igor,
Many thanks for your prompt answer! I just selected the second document (as you already wrote in your answer) and everything works just fine.
Have a great day,
Irene
