Hello!
I have some bullet lists each in a paragraph. Example:
• bla-bla • aklklkéáléálé hhhhh e r • kkkkkkkkkk • art jtrokkk • eeeeeeeee

I tried to add the • symbol among segmentation delimiters (. ; ! ? tab etc.), but it is ignored during file opening and segmentation. Maybe I have to use its Unicode value?

Péter.

Hello Péter,

Yes, you need to use the Unicode value for the bullet point.

In the box below the Rules list (Advanced View of the Rule set editor), type
#!#\u2022[\s]+[\p{L}\d]
and press Add button

Press OK to save the segmentation rule set

Here is a screenshot.

Best regards,

I tried it, but it doesn't work in the first phase. I will cloese and reopen memoQ and will try again.
Thank you for your help anyway!

It works! Oct 21, 2016

There is no need to add any Unicode, it works simply after adding it to the list of other segment delimiters.
My problem was that another segmentation rule was overriding this setting and I just needed to disable that one.

Thanks again!
