Winalign 8.0 does not display target language filenames

Hi all,

While editing my alignment project in WinAlign, Version 8.0 I get to see only the source filenames. On the right side of the "Files" tab in the "Edit Winalign Project" window I see a blurr of spaces and dots where the filenames and routes should have been. The left side of the screen displays ok. There is nothing special about the filename structure: "Number(4 digits)_Language code(3 CAPS)" e.g. source file = 2113_ENG.rtf, target file = 2113_SVK.rtf.

Is this a GUI bug or is there a problem on my side?

thanks for help anyone


I also do not understand why is the winalign tool suggesting to match non-related files. The files are all sorted alphabetically and they have a structure the analogy of which even a 6-year old would understand, but not the Trados engineers apparently. Nevertheless, the software cannot detect this coherence and aligns files in its own zig-zag way, the files on the bottom with the ones on the top denying the very basics of logic. Why?
