Good evening everybody!

I'm a WF user and for a very big translation project I'm using WF classic (I'm a Mac user and I'm using WFclassic with VirtualBox). My client just sent me a glossary but I can't use it with WF classic because at every segment I get this message: "This file cannot be reorganised because it is shared by another process."

Is there anyone who can help me with this?
Thanks!

Eleonora

huh Oct 1, 2010

It seems as if you had the glosary opened in your Notepad at the same time. Was it the case when you tried to reorganise it?

Locked file Oct 1, 2010

This happens sometimes when a program that accessed the file hasn't released it. This can happen if the program terminated unexpectedly, or it can simply be a bug in the program. I have had MS Word and even the Windows operating system do this sometimes.

I have been using a simple little program called Unlocker for a while that solves this problem. After closing the file, right click on it and select Unlock, and it will disconnect it from the program that hasn't released it.

Unlocker is available from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Unlocker.shtml

Hope this helps.

I just notice you said you're a Mac user - not sure if this will work with Mac or not.

Copy and paste Oct 4, 2010

Have you tried copying the glossary, starting a new glossary and pasting your glossary into it?

Hello Lesley!

In the meantime I opened it with notepad and using the glossary in a very silly way: searching the term I need with ctrl+f!! But is the only way to use it!!
