Adding a new shortcut on TBS
« on: November 24, 2011, 06:36:21 AM »
Hello,

First I would like to thank you for  this software, it is very useful !!

However, since you removed the French version in 3.2, is it possible to use a French thesaurus ? So far I was not able to do so and it is very annoying cause I bought it.

Nevertheless, I was ready to fill a new thesaurus with my vocabulary in entering spintaxes I made earlier, I cannot do that either.
The greatest idea for my use would be to add a fonction in "word/phrase" for exemple where you can choose to add permanently the word to a database (to pick on a list), so you must not go in "manage my favs" to fill a single word.

I have no skills regarding programming, however I'm a translator, so if you would like to translate your software (buttons, etc...) in French I'll be happy to do so.

I don't even know if I'm at the right place to make this request.

Bye and thanks

You can import and export "My favourites", so you do not need to do this one word at a time. Does that help?

Well I need anyway to create a file at the right format of text to use it. I cannot gather all my texts together ! I tried with a single word and its synonyms and it does not work anyway. I don't understand why the software is not using MY thesaurus instead of the English one...

But thanks for trying to help me ^^

If you have tried with one word and its synonyms, can you paste the text in your thesaurus or favorites file so that we know where is the problem?

I think I understood where is the problem. Maybe there is one database (in English) at the root of the software. What I want is to use a French one, it was possible with the previous versions, but not with TBS 3.2 as Jonathan Leger said in another place of the forum.

So even if I put a favorite or many, they won't be recognized.

I put though some new terms in the thesaurus I have (in French), I even tried to put some in a .txt file and imported it, still no progress.

The tab "word/phrase" does not recognize any word in French ! For what you suggest to do, it is not related.
That is to say, for the software save favorites, it need them to be on the list, except that I have no words recognized in my list, so I can not add any favorites at all !! Do I make myself clear  ;D ?

The problem is way to complex, we need to use a previous version, that is the only solution that can work now.

camspupuce,

Actually you are a bit confused.

You can save almost any character on the keyboard in any combination as a word, French words included, in MyFavorites. Now if you ask TBS to "Replace My Favorites" it will infuse those synonyms in place of those characters (could be even French words) in the text you are working with.

The central thesurus has no connection here.

That's all there is to it.

Regards,
SNM

I answered your email, yes it is really confusing to use this software !

I tried this option "replace my favorites" with some words as test, it does not work either ??! So why the favorites are not going into the text ? There is a problem somewhere !

I just checked by inserting Myfav on a new text file and it works!

Ok I tried one last thing and it worked. In a simple texte I succeed in replacing words by my favorites, that is a win !!

BUT, the English version does not support the stresses on words : that is a big problem because there are a lot in French.
 
Thank you for helping me with this, I will try to find a solution for that.


Bye bye
