Why oh why does Studio 2009 delete recent projects when it crashes?

does Studio 2009 have to delete recent projects when it crashes? I've learned from experience to update my main memory so as much of the target text can be automatically repopulated once I create a new project, but whenever it does crash I know I've lost at least 10-15 minutes work. Other programs (e.g. MS Word) recover documents - why can't this one? Why delete at all?!

You don't have to Apr 2, 2013

If I understand what you are saying, when it crashes the project may be deleted from the list but it is not at all deleted. Go to open > project and then find the sdlproj file from whatever file it is in. This calls it up and you will have everything to the last save and, even if you didn't save, what was not will still come up as 100% matches. So you don't lose anything. The key is simply to reopen the project, not create a new one.

Thanks Apr 2, 2013

even if you didn't save, what was not will still come up as 100% matches.


How does it do that without you committing the text to the project TM or main TM?

All TUs are saved to the TM (project or main TM) the moment you confirm them.

Is this automatic, Apr 2, 2013

or do you have to select an option for it to do so? Because if Studio crashes, and I open a project from the sdlxliff, any TUs that were confirmed after the last save are lost. It only preserves the ones prior to the last save.

TUs Apr 2, 2013

TUs are saved to your TM after you confirm them (CTRL+ENTER). The SDLXLIFF might be empty from the position of the last save, but you can still use your TM to pretranslate the empty segments.
