Dear colleagues,

as I am working with POedit for the first time I am wondering if it is possible to change several translations at once from Fuzzy to normal? I have over 600 strings here...

Any helpful tips appreciated!

Thanks
Carolin

Not even Virtaal... Apr 19, 2012

Not even Virtaal has that feature (though I actually requested it, and was told that it would be "dangerous" to have). Your only hope is to open the PO file in a text editor (make sure it detects the file encoding correctly) and remove the #fuzzy lines from the messages that you want to unfuzzy. Simply removing that line (the whole line, including the line break) will mark it as no longer fuzzy.
