Having finished a project and exported the translated files, I saw the update to 5.12.0 and ran it on both Macs. On the iMac (2017 27-inch 40Gb memory) I opened one of the program files to check everything was there. On closing, the project showed as 40% complete. I opened the other file to check nothing was missing and, on closing, it showed 0% complete for the whole project.

Having finished a project and exported the translated files, I saw the update to 5.12.0 and ran it on both Macs. On the iMac (2017 27-inch 40Gb memory) I opened one of the program files to check everything was there. On closing, the project showed as 40% complete. I opened the other file to check nothing was missing and, on closing, it showed 0% complete for the whole project. As I had the translated files stored in a couple of other places, I am not worried, but it gave me a fright. I sent a Feedback to Support. They e-mailed in a matter of minutes, saying 5.12.1 would be out soon. They say the crash on closing is "still there" but I had not seen it for some months and it now occurs on both Macs. The old trick of adding a couple of lines to config.ini does not seem to help. We live and learn!Collapse

Crash on closing Nov 19

More advice from the People Who Know (the helpful John S.). To avoid the crash on closing, go to the Wordfast icon at the top left, select Browser Mode, select Lightweight and restart. Never knew that!

Segment State and Progress Nov 19

Hi John,

We have added a new feature segment state Translated which calculates progress in 5.12. So your older projects will show up as less % based on number of Exact and Context matches in file which automatically get Translated State.

So old files if you want to see Project as 100% open the project and select all to Chain Files. Then go to Translation tab and click on Mark All Translated. Then Save and Close the file.

Hope this helps.

Thank

Many thanks Nov 20

Many thanks John. Understood and tried out on a small sample, pausing in the middle. It seems to work well. Have Release Notes moved somewhere else? I can only find 5.11.1 at the usual:

Warning about 5.12.0 on Mac Nov 22

Here we are back to square one. I installed v5.12.0 on my Mac with OSX Mojave and WPR does not open. Again! I thought this bug had been solved, but apparently it has not.
Crash on closing may have been solved, no start on opening is back!
I edited the config.ini file as once instructed by John DR, to no avail.
My bad not caring about warnings! Disappointed!

P.S.: I copied the Wordfast.app (v5.11) from a backup to Applications on my iMac and WFP works again.

Don't edit config.ini Nov 22

I was advised that one should not add the two lines to config.ini with this version. In fact, one of them is already there. Setting Browser Mode to Lightweight eliminated the only crashes I have had on two Macs with Catalina. If it won't open, you can't do this. The usual suggestions are (1) Try opening in Safe Mode, (2) Add another User to Users & Groups, open in that and try ... But I don't doubt you have tried both of these already. Probably best to stay with something that works and try 5.1... See more

Not a word from Wordfast about WFP5 v5.12 failing completely...
