Some questions and observations about working with SIL files:
File | Save/Load Translation | Save Project - the SIL file (Captions) contains blanks even though all my forms siLangLink components have AutoSkipEntries = True. What am I missing?

File | Save/Load Translation | Save Project Properties creates a SIL file for say just Strings. How do I read the file back in? When I use Load Project, it wipes out the translations in all other properties.

When I have the project SIL file open and merge a property SIL file, it always tells me all the items that were missing from the property file. Do I need to pay attention to this? Can I merge just the properties in the smaller file?

Is there a way to merge (or export) just one property section?

Thanks. I really appreciate your quick responses.

It looks like your SIL file was created before setting this property to True. Since SIL is just INI file format older entries are not deleted when writing newer content.

You can load particular property directly in TsiLang Translation Editor when editing this property.

These are just warning, you can ignore them.

To merge you can use Merge Wizard in SIL Editor. To export- TsiLang Expert with "Save project properties".
