I have to merge segments in Across. I looked at the online guide and found the relevant section but I can't select the segments.

Can anyone help?

Thank you
Tea

Merge segments in Across Apr 9, 2015

Hello, Maria Teresa,

I think that in order to merge segments, you must select the first segment, hold down Shift and select the second segment. Then. right click and choose "Join Paragraphs".

It doesn't always work and depends how it was formatted.


I hope that this will work for you.


Best regards,

May depend on parsing Apr 9, 2015

You cannot join segments if they are of different parsing levels (the segments belong to two different paragraphs; are a paragraph title and the first sentence of the paragraph, etc.). To check it, keep under your eye the crosView that is on the left off the source view). You could see the structure and where the segments belong to after clicking the most left little icon. Click on this icon which depicts a text tree and analyze the text structure (titles, paragraphs and so on). If both your segments are on the same level, then join them; if not, then you cannot join them.
By the way, check free webinars on Across in German on the my-across website.
