I'm trying out metatexis (thank you responders for pointing me in this direction:)) . The first paragraph of my document worked fine, I see the translation there. After that I can only see the source text, not my translation! I can only visualise the translation when I check on 'show hidden text'. Of course, it's supposed to be the translation I see, and the source text that is hidden. What happened after that first paragraph? How do I get my translation back? I've looked in the manual, and clicked around the program a bit now.

Thank you for your continued advice,

Hi Marissa Apr 15, 2006

In case you wish to see both source and translation, go to Metatexis > Navigation > Show hidden text on/off.


P.S. Perhaps I have misunderstood your question. In case you see only source, not translation, maybe you haven't clicked the OK button on the Metatexis toolbar while going to the next segment?

In case of a fuzzy match first press Shift+Alt+Enter to accept the fuzzy match and then Alt+Down or simply Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Down to execute both functions at once. I prefer to assign Alt+Down to this function (Select translation and open next TU).

To do this: Go to the General options, select the Shortcuts tab, click button Default, then click OK. The command Select translation and open next TU should now have a shortcut. To change the shortcut, just double click the item in the shortcut list. Also you can reverse the assignment and assign open next TU to Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Down in order to move to the next TU without saving the open one.
