  • Fix spreadsheet: field names with [square brackets] caused errors

Version 3.2
  • Support for import of MultiTerm mtf.xml files, even if no xdt file is available.
  • New TBX parser supports handling of very large files. Note, though, that MultiTerm itself has a size limit of 2 GB, so you still can't convert the IATE termbase to MultiTerm format...
  • Improved support for fields in TBX. It is not mirroring the whole byzantine tangle of field and note types and groups in TBX, but will harvest most of what can be considered a field in MultiTerm.
  • Fix: settings files are now saved with the extension xml (not the out of date txt).
