I recently did a project online with MemoQ. Now I'm back in my default offline mode but I cannot set my regular TM as the primary. I tried creating a new one from scratch and even that one cannot be set as the primary or master. I noticed the names of the TMs in the list are now in italics, but they're stored locally. Any suggestions?

Translation memories appear in italics when they are not in the same language pair direction as the one in the active project. For example, if a TM is in English>Greek and your project is in Greek>English, the name of this TM will appear in italics in the list of TMs.

As for why you can't set a TM as primary, can you describe the exact steps that you are following?
