Hy there,
I tried the aligment tool of memoQ for the first time today and was really
disappointed. The result of the aligment process is of really bad quality.
The documents that I imported have technical content with a lot of numeration.
It didn't even assign segments with the same number entry! Much too much is mixed
up. This tool works much better: http://youalign.com/Default.aspx
Did I something wrong?

regards

Frank

Salut Hans,
I've tried pdfs and docs. I'm just reading the manual.
Maybe I did something wrong.

bonne journée

Every line in a PDF ends with a CrLF Aug 30, 2012

Hello Frank,

As far as PDF files are concerned: please be aware of the fact that every line in such a file ends with a hard return. This makes aligning problematic.

Hans

I tried this alignment tool with PDFs: http://youalign.com/Default.aspx.
It worked almost perfect... Compared to this the alignment function
in memoQ is really crappy...
