Hi! I am back with one more newbie question: is there a quick way (like a hotkey combo) to insert the number(s) in the source segment to the target segment? I just noticed that a number is highlighted in green in the source segment and wonder if that indicates a quick way to reproduce it on the target side is available.

Thank you for answering my question:)

If the number is highlighted in green, it means that memoQ identified it as an auto-translatable item. You should see the number in the Translation results pane. If you do, simply press Ctrl + the number of the item in the Translation results pane. It gets inserted the same as a termbase entry.

Thanks, Tomas, for pointing me to look at the right place.
But how do you insert a term in #11 in the results window? That's where the number is, and when I typed 11, I got duplicate entries from #1:) My temporary solution was removing a large but not very useful termbase from my project to make the number hit go up on the list.

... and 1 for 11, 2 for 12 and so on. I think that might do it.

Hi Ulrika,

I just tried Ctrl+Shift+1 and it successfully brought what was in #11 to the target segment. Thank you so much for your tip!
