I hope, you will be able to help me with this one!

I've got Deja Vu X3 Pro, and I often import external files to work on into a DVX project.
In most cases, these files are standard XLIFF files.
However, I noticed that after a pre-translated XLIFF file has been imported into the DVX project, the tags in the Source and Target rows are mismatched. For example, if there are tags 1 and 2 in the source row, the tags in the same target row will follow the same numbering sequence (3 and 4 respectively). I suspect that this is incorrect, as the tags in the source are the same as in the target and should therefore retain the same structure and numbering (1 and 2) after the import into the DVX project has been completed.
This mismatch results in a lot of manual rework, as I have to follow through and
1. Delete all tags.
2. Re-insert tags.

Again what's important is that mismatched tags are always the same (correct) tags, but DVX handles them as different tags that should be fixed.

I will really appreciate your help!

Hi Denis,

Did you send the file to support after yesterday's webinar?
We would like to have a look at this.
