Hi there,

One of the things I like about Synergy is, that you and follow the translation progress of the files you are working on. It can be encouraging, when working on a seemingly endless project - or it can give you a pointer as to how intensely you now must work to meet that dreaded deadline !
But I Synergy has not been my best friend for quite some time. Suddenly it started to add identical lines of the files to the window 'Show recent projects', every time you had saved and closed to file (to have a peep of the wordcount).
What also happens is, that it suddenly add the 'untranslated' words of each new line to the total of wordes to be translated (if there are several files in the project).
When it happened it ended with a total freeze of program.
I unfroze it by following the instruction in another thread here. Reinstalling the program, removing the 'server.txt' - and a part from the fact that I had lost all history - everything was working well again.

... But elas, now I see this add-on of the files again, and I dread another crash on my current job, and having to export the memory and all.

Is there a way to cure the problem ? Or is it just a 'funny bug' which I shouldn't be so concerned about ?

best regards,
