Basically, nothing happens when I click [Plain XLIFF for other tools] (no pop-up, no dialog, no nothing). I'm using memoQ 2015.

shitty, but normal
•Save a compressed file check box: For smaller file size, check this check box. memoQ creates XLIFF files in a ZIP (*.mqxlz). MQXLZ cannot be imported into other tools. You need to export as *.mqxliff. In order to do this, click the [Plain XLIFF for other tools] link. This will automatically deactivate all check boxes that are needed for a MQXLZ export and will generate MQXLIFF files.
it's a shame we can't generate files with plain .xlf extension.
This behaviour is absolutely normal and allowed under the XLIFF specification. Tool vendors can create their own variants of plain XLIFF, hence .mqxlif and .sdlxlif and .txlf and a few others.
What can't you do with .mqxlif? You can use it anywhere that XLIFF is supported. The core file structure is the same.
