Hello.

Beautiful Sunday afternoon in Uruguay, and spending it studying wordfast... y metiendo la pata!

I edited my BTM just now, cleaning and "deleting" (is that possible) all redundant lines.

Now, how to I save it? Unfortunately realized too late that BTM is read-only. I selected all (CRTL+A) the lines, copied them and pasted them into a new TM, but it copied and pasted all the lines, including the redundant ones which supposedly I had deleted.

Any help will be ENORMOUSLY appreciated.

Thanks.

Marcela

bak Jan 24, 2010

marcella,


there would be a bak file (backup) for the BTM. usually it contains the situation before the latest modification.

you can check: in case your bak BTM, is quite larger in Mb-s, than it still contains all, or most of the previous content.

if so, archive or move the actual smaller BMT, and rename bak into operative BTM, with txt extension.
