In Studio 2017 I have become used to working from source pdf files that are treated as translatable and that are converted to an sdlxliff files without problems. In fact, it does a very good job extracting the text and later merging in the pictures when exporting as a Word document.
Studio 2019 marks the same pdf file as translatable, but in the next step creating the project, it says that the project needs at least one translatable file.

In Studio 2017 I have become used to working from source pdf files that are treated as translatable and that are converted to an sdlxliff files without problems. In fact, it does a very good job extracting the text and later merging in the pictures when exporting as a Word document.
Studio 2019 marks the same pdf file as translatable, but in the next step creating the project, it says that the project needs at least one translatable file.
I am following exactly the same procedure as in 2017 (in fact, I had them next to each other on my screens) but it simply doesn't want to work with them.
Is this a known problem or has the procedure changed in the 2019 version?

Had the same problem with regular Word files Nov 9, 2018

This sometimes happens, for no apparent reason. I don't think this is specific for PDF files. In such a case, I generally delete all the automatically created folders, make sure there is an empty folder where the new project will be created and retry. It may take two-three attempts, but the "shortened" project-creation procedure will eventually create the project.
HTH,
Sandra
