Hello,

as soon as I confirm a translated segment, the preview scrolls the text and shows the next segment highlighted in red, but hides the one I just translated above the preview window. I have to keep scrolling down the window to check if the formatting is ok. In my logic, the highlighted segment in red should be right in the middle of the preview pane so that it is possible to instantly check what you translated without having to touch the mouse or the keyboard, do you agree? Is that a way to configure the behaviour of the preview pane?

Regards,
Marcos

Entirely agree! May 13, 2010

I entirely agree! It would be a lot better to let us scroll the text manually so that we see the text above and below, or at most that the text scrolls automatically when the highlight is at the bottom of the page and go to the next segment.

Ctrl+S May 13, 2010

I just noticed that instead of pressing Ctrl+Enter to confirm the segment, you can save the document with Ctrl+S, which will update the preview pane. This is not the ideal solution but at least might be a help to this issue.
