Hi,
I just installed OmegaT 2.6.3 on my Macbook. After I've created a project, I try to import the source files but nothing happens, i.e. the program says that my project is empty or the file format isn't supported. Source file is a .docx that I created, so there can't be any conversion problem.
If anyone could help, I'd appreciate it a lot!!!

Try this Aug 21, 2013

I've had that happen after creating a project and translating one file -- although not at the very beginning of a project.

Try just copying the files you want to translate into the Source folder manually. Then when you click on Open you should see your files in the list.

Not working Aug 21, 2013

I have no idea what happened, but I managed to do this just once!

Not each time I want to Select "Open", it's grayed out. I have the feeling that I'm doing something terribly wrong...

Close your project, or reload it Aug 21, 2013

That's because a project is open.
Close it first (Project > Close).

Or, if you have changed something in the source folder, simply reload it (Project > Reload).

You could also quit OmegaT, and open it again.

No plugin is needed to open a .docx file.

Problem solved! Aug 22, 2013

I don't know how, but apparently I solved the problem... think the source file kept on being somehow corrupted.

Thanks a lot for your help!!!
