Where the heck is Wordfast saving my projects?

I have the trial version of WF Pro. I am trying to learn the basics of it.

I use Mac OS X.

I am trying to create my first local TM, and it is asking me to find the spot where it saved my project.

Problem is, it saved the project somewhere I can't find it. The path is:

Users/jnielsen/.wf_workspace/Test Project

I found a Users folder on my hard drive, with jnielsen under it, but from that point there is no ".wf_workspace".

I also cannot find a place to change where it saves projects. When I click on "Preferences" nothing happens - perhaps this is because it's a trial version. But it seems like Wordfast chooses where to open projects and I have no say in the matter.

Can someone help?

Go figure... May 16, 2009

Go figure where the 'heck' it is… But hey, that's just a drawback you have to bear for the sake of all the greatness the Eclipse platform brought to Wordfast. Hurray!

(Eclipse is such a failure... Every program I have that is based on it is slow.)
