Hi everyone

I've just installed OmegaT and I'm a little confused because I started reading tutorials and they always mention Options>Transtips as an option that seems quite useful, except I don't have this. I had first installed 4.3.2, so I tried 5.2.0 instead to no avail.

Hi everyone

I've just installed OmegaT and I'm a little confused because I started reading tutorials and they always mention Options>Transtips as an option that seems quite useful, except I don't have this. I had first installed 4.3.2, so I tried 5.2.0 instead to no avail.

Is Transtips there under a new name or should I get an earlier version or...? I feel a bit blocked because I guess this is one of the software's most interesting features, so I'd like to solve this mystery before I go on learning how to use it.

Many thanks for your help.

The tutorials (and even the user manual!) are out of date. Options > TransTips was replaced by View > Mark Glossary Matches. It's a very similar feature that was added when TransTips was removed. I'm not sure if everything the tutorials say about TransTips also apply to "Mark Glossary Matches", but the latter is intended to replace the former.

Thanks a lot for this info

It's a bit disconcerting because the tutorial starts with something in the line of "If you like intuitive trial and error softwares, OmegaT isn't for you, this software requires you to read the tutorial", and now I hear the tutorials are out of date ha ha. What you told me is super useful though, at least now I have a starting point, thanks again
