I've been testing MemoQ and have version 3.5.16. So far I am enjoying the software.

One problem: I can't seem to join or split segments. Those two functions are always blanked out in the Edit menu.

Anyone else having a similar problem?

this is true with some bilingual formats May 11, 2009

...due to technical restrictions. What type of document are you translating? If you work with Star Transit projects for example, joining and splitting is disabled.

Best regards,
Gergely

depends on the file format May 11, 2009

This depends on the file format and whether you are working in a server environment with simultaneous proofreading. I suspect you're working on a TTX file. As the segmentation there is done by Trados, MemoQ does not dare to change it (to ensure compatibility). For most other formats, joining and splitting segments will work.

Thanks! It's a Transit project, so that would explain what is happening.

Filter vs. joining/splitting May 31, 2009

Hello,

I really adore the Filter function. However, when I activate it, I am not able to join and split segments. This is for plain Word files, not for Transit as above. So when I find segments that should be joined/split, I need to reset the filter, do the joining/splitting and set up the filter again.

Is this a bug or a feature?icon_smile.gif

Probably a feature Jun 11, 2009

Vitor, most probably its a feature. I also tried to do this and failed.

I think it was intentionally made, because when filter is activated, normal sequence of segments is changed and you see just segments 1, 3 and 5 (for example). And joining works only with neighbor segments. So you can't join segment 1 and 2 if your segment 2 is hidden.

Why splitting isn't working - no idea, may be the same reason.

yes, it is a feature Jun 12, 2009

Hello All,

Allowing split and join in filtered segment lists could cause serious problems, so we need to prevent it.

BR,
Gergely

Nasty buggy program Nov 3, 2011

I vote for "BUG" and only one of many in this annoying program. I'm working on a document imported from a memoq bilingual file and can't join segments. Incredibly irritating and simply not good enough for a program that costs this much.

Joining/splitting also doesn't work if you created a view - even if it's not active.

Thanks Lemminger. This answer saved my neck. I deleted the view and Join/Split Option immediately activated.
Thanks once again.
