Hi,
Small question: I'm doing a (huge) winalign project. Some English segments are spread over 3 French ones. I can link two, but not 3. The 3rd gives me a red padlock sign.

How do I get around it?

Thanks,
Nancy

Join segments? Jan 20, 2005

I am not sure what the padlock means, but you can try to join segments (select the segments and press CTRL+J).

Hi Nancy,
You can link three (or more) into one, but you cannot link over multiple levels.

For example, let's assume you have source segments, A, B, C, and D and target segments E, F, G, and H. You can link B+C+D to F, but not if D is also linked to G - that's a typical situation where you get the 'padlock'. Therefore, check whether the unit you're trying to link is connected elsewhere.

HTH, Ralf

Thank you both Jan 21, 2005

Now that I am back to work, I'll try what Hynek has said.

You're right, Ralf, that is what happened.

Nancy
