Hi all,

I recently licensed WFP4 on two machines (my desktop PC and my Mac laptop). I've been using the WF demo version for a while, but without properly setting up memories, etc.

Ideally I would like to keep all memories, etc. in a dedicated Wordfast Dropbox folder so I could go back and forth between the two machines. *Has anyone successfully set this up?* I tried, but I'm not having any luck when I try to open an existing project on my laptop, I get a "cannot connect to local TM" error message.

Or does anyone have other suggestions as to the best way to organize my WF files? Willing to share your system?

As mentioned, I've been using it up to now mainly to handle internal repetitions within documents and avoid working in PowerPoint, but now I want to create an organized system to archive and leverage all my work going forward in the long term.

I do 90% of my work on my desktop, so instant syncing isn't essential, though it would be nice. I do mostly non-technical work.

Any and all suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
