A. This is a known issue that we hope will be fixed shortly.
Q. Why are no tasks displayed in the Desktop Extension when I re-import the Portable Transcriber Format (PTF) file (TT-1261)

Q. What should I do if I don’t like the way a particular string has been translated?
A. Consider contributing the suggested translation on the crowdin site and letting us know. We can rebuild the program and release a hot fix with the adjusted translations.
Q. What are the known issues for Version 1
A. Version 1 has quite a list of known issues. Since it runs on a single machine, it doesn’t allow the same level of collaboration as SIL Transcriber 2.
