Dear friends,

In Microsoft Word, there is a useful shortcut to bring the cursor back to the last editing point: Shift-F5. For example: you work in the middle of a document. Then you look up something some pages above. To get back to your working position, you simply press Shift-F5.

Is there something similar in MemoQ?

Thanks,
David

Ctrl-Z to remove filter Feb 21, 2017

David if I am in a filtered view I use Ctrl-Z to return to a previous perhaps unfiltered view and find this works very well. Unless of course in the meantime I have done an amount of unsaved translation in which case I remove the filter and sort by Last changed (newer first) which also works very nicely

Thanks Feb 21, 2017

Thanks, this is a possibility. But is there no simple way to just go to the next untranslated segment, without changing the view?

"Go to next" Feb 21, 2017

memoQ implements this idea of where you should go next to continue translating. If you are translating, it could be the next empty or non-confirmed segment; if reviewing, the next unreviewed segment. You can go wherever you need to in the translation grid and, when you are ready to continue working where you had left it, simply press Ctrl+G to go to the next actionable segment.

This is called "Go to next", and its default shortcut is Ctrl+G. You can easily configure what should be your next segment with a dialog box you can open with Ctrl+Shift+G. Play a bit with it and check the online help, and you will master it quickly enough.

I hope this helps a bit!
