To compact a gigantic memory, exported as TMX from Studio, I'd like to remove all properties, e.g.:

What is the best way to do this?

Open it in a Unicode-aware text editor and do a regex find/replace operation.

There is a Mac on your desk, so perhaps this page provides such a text editor.

The simplest way would be to search for something like changeid=".+?" and replace with nothing (the Find field's regex syntax may differ from editor to editor). Or, if you want to assume that the "lang" attribute is always at the start of the TUV tag (which is 99% true), you can search for e.g. (<tuv lang=".+?")(.+?)(>) and replace it with e.g. $1$3 (again the syntax may differ from program to program).

Along these lines I was thinking indeed, hoping, however, an even simpler solution would exist .

Thank you for your suggestion!

I've tested Maxprogram's TMXEditor:

Free Heartsome Tmx Editor Sep 5

You can use Heartsome Tmx Editor to export your Tmx file as an excel file and then reimport it again into Heartsome creating a Tmx file again without any properties. It's very easy.

With Heartsome, you don't even need to convert tmx into Excel or anything else. Just open your tmx, clear all attributes and apply to the entire TMX file.

Bad luck as Heartsome does not run under Catalina.

When you open a tmx file with Heartsome, an Attributes Editor pane displays on the right. You can add, edit or delete the attributes one by one: choose the first unwanted attrubute (by clicking), then delete with 'Whole file/TM' radio button selected; choose the second unwanted attrubute, then delete with 'Whole file/TM' radio button selected; etc.

BTW, does anybody here own Heartsome for Windows (as the application does not run on moste recente Apple OSX) and can (s)he point me to where to download it? I tried Github but the zip file is infected with a trojan.

Googling gets me two "Heartsome" profiles on GitHub, one being "Heartsome TMX Editor" and the other "Heartsome Studio", but I'm not sure if they're the same thing or two different things. I downloaded the TMX editor in 2014 (not sure from where, though). I uploaded it here for 7 days (I'm not sure how many people can download it). It's 620 MB and contains HSTMXEditor 8.0.1 for Linux (32&64 bit), Mac (32&64 bit) and Windows (32&64 bit, with and without JRE. The "without JRE" version doesn't work for me, but I suspect it may be because my own installed version of Java is too new for it.

Hello Wolfgang,

Remeber that the HSTMEditor version must correspond to your OS version. Otherwise it doesn't work.

Also, if you are not sure whther you have Java installed on your machine, choose the version ending with JRE.

A big Thanks to you guys, Samuel, Adrian and Stepan. I downloaded Win_x86_JRE version and it works in my Windows 10.
@Samuel: as expected those versions for Mac do not work or I would have to install Java 6 which I tried unsuccessfully. So I'll content myself with the Windows version and can definitely forget about TMX Editor.
