Hi,

I've recently upgraded to Studio 2017 and have upgraded most of my personal TMs, leaving the biggest for last, which is the DGT TM containing around 1.5 million segments. The first four steps (backup, upgrade, reindex and build) were reasonably fast, but the last step, align translation units, has been running for two days and according to the progress bar it has so far aligned 359,000 TUs, so I guess it will take around a week to complete, which begs the question: wouldn't it make sense to include a pause button? This would mean I could shutdown my computer and let it rest for a while and pick up where I left off later on. Also, living in rural Mexico, short power cuts are not uncommon, so having a pause button would mean I could hit the button when the no-break kicks in and wouldn't loose a few days progress in the upgrade process.

Also, when playing around with my first TM upgrades I notice that if I click cancel before the process is completed, the "upgrade" option for that TM is greyed out next time I set up a new project, which doesn't make sense because the process was not completed. If the process is cancelled part way through the last "align translation units" stage, will I still get leverage from the partially upgraded TM?

I guess splitting big TMs is one option, but still, a pause button would be nice.

Turns out the entire process completed a few hours after the original post:

This means the progress bar is meaningless.
