How do you ignore certain parts of source text when segmenting?

What I want to do is to segment the source document in a way that ignores every "paragraph" that looks like:

" 【0001】"

with any combination of numbers between the brackets. This would speed things up for me when several hundred "paragraphs" from the source text are just paragraph numbers.

Is this possible? I'm used to using Wordfast Classic, which ignores segments like this by default.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Mar 19

Thanks, it looks like that basically solves the problem, but I'd still prefer to not see or tap through those segments at all.

If you’re dealing with MS Word documents, you can hide the segments in that editor. You can do this via Find and Replace:

BTW: Via the Skip settings in the Action menu you can ignore segments that you’ve set to Checked via the Task menu.
