For years now, I'm having this problem with Studio projects:

100% EM matches are not being not propagated.

It works at the developer's computer but not at my iMac. How come?

In the TM pane I see:


In a large project with thousands of EMs, this gets really annoying. I constantly have to use Translate > Insert all EMs.

These are my propagation settings:


Same issue with CMs:

Edit: I see that EMs and CMs are inserted automatically, but that they aren't set to translated and skipped automatically.

Is this by design?

Edit: I've solved the task ('issue' is maybe too strong, since the behaviour might be intended by the developer) (temporarily?) by this macro:


The caveat with this macro (procedure) is that actually, a Memory > Import > Import segments from project should be executed first.

New keyboard shortcut needed? Jun 22

Perhaps a new keyboard shortcut 'Force propagation forward' is needed?
