On my other computer, the numbers in the source were highlighted so that I could double click on them to move them to the target in the correct format. I am working on another computer and now they are not highlighted. How can I turn this feature on? Thank you.

Autotranslation rules Jan 16, 2013

I think this relates to the Auto-translation of numbers. It is possible that on the other computer you had something enabled in the Settings > Auto-translation rules panel of the project. Check the same pane in the project from the new machine.

I hope this gives you a hint as to where to look!

Not there! :-) Jan 16, 2013

What I meant is that you go to the "Proyect home" tab, click Settings, and then click the "Auto-translatables". I think that you should enable one of the options there, namely the one that corresponds to your language.

Glad it worked! Jan 16, 2013

Indeed. What you described before are the general settings that apply when you create a project for instance, but your actual project in process might have them disabled.

Good luck!
