Fuzzy matches won't insert while pretranslating

Hi all,

Already posted this on "The Beast", but crossposting it here, let's see who's first to answer:

After having checked all of my settings once again, I am seriously wondering what is going on.

7.5.303 Workgroup, WinXP, project with Trados Workbench docs, 3 TMs selected, all of them with read, write and reverse.
Pretranslation settings:
Accept only exact - deact.
Assemble from portions - deact. (I only want exacts and fuzzys at this point)
No overwriting options selected
Database lookups in options set as low as 55%
All databases compacted and repaired

What happens is that fuzzy matches (sometimes 90%+) do show up in the AutoSearch Sentences section, but DVX just refuses to insert them during a pre-translate run.

Any ideas?

Hi Wolfgang,

Did you consider repairing the project? It sometimes helps to solve this problem.

Hi Selcuk,

This must have been the only thing I did not think of. But it seems to have done the trick, I do get fuzzy matches inserted now.
