I took on a big project, which is supposed to be delivered in batches. I made the mistake of downloading the whole job to the Desktop Editor all at once, so that when I am now done translating the first batch and want to edit it, I confirm a string, only to be jumped to the next unconfirmed (untranslated) string hundreds of strings down. And then I have to go back up and find my spot again.
Is there a way to remove the batches I am not yet working on, so I can finish the first one? I also wonder what will happen when I do QA on the first batch, and I have all those untranslated strings.

My version is 6.210.5, and I work on a MacBook Pro.

Thanks!

Lincoln's suggestion is good, simply change the behavior after confirming.

Alternatively, you could download the single files of the batch and work on these files instead of the full batch. You can even switch between working on the full batch and working on the single files. The translation on the server should always be synchronized, regardless on what kind of local file you work.

Oh, that's great! Mar 13, 2018

Thank you, both of you! Very helpful. I didn't realize I could re-download them, and then have my already done translations populate the strings. And changing the behavior is great to know too!

Thanks!
