Is it possible to get Trados to segment after a manual line break (sometimes called soft return, or shift+enter) as it does after a paragraph mark (or hard return)?

I don't know too much about Trados segmentation rules or indeed if it's possible to edit them, so I would appreciate anyone's help on this.

Hi Alan,

Try this:

Open your TM and go to File/Setup.
Select the "Segmentation rules" tab.
Enter a name (e.g. "Line break") in the empty field in the top of the dialog box and click Add.
Then, in the drop down list "Stop Character" in the "Rule" field, you should be able to select a manual line break.

HTH,
Sylvain
