Hi all,
I am working on a project (hundreds of pre-translated .ttx files; html is the target format) where I will be editing XU protected segments in Tageditor and each time I want to open such a segment, I have to go to options - tools - protection and deselect the XU tag option.
I thought I could just click on the 'lock' and then go into the segment, but, although that is already 'open', I still can't edit it.
Am I missing something here or is there a faster way to go into a XU segment and edit it?

Any suggestion is welcome!

They are quite self explaining.
If you just switch off the XU protection, the second setting does set it back again when closing segment.
