Hello All

Simple one but could not find it in the Help section of OmegaT – or have looked in the wrong place ;-(

Can you mark a segment as untranslated (i.e. return it to the purple highlighting)?

I do not work on segments in sequence, so i sometimes hit return and the segment then displays the source and highlights it in yellow.

Any key combination you can use to return a segment status to "untranslated"?

Thanks!

I don't think there is such a function Aug 17, 2012

I would just mark it with a symbol, such as [], meaning "come back to this later." Or if you don't want it at all, delete what's in the segment -- I think that will make it "purple" again.

Thanks, Susan Aug 17, 2012

Indeed. Deleting the translation returns the status to "untranslated", it is a simple workaround that works for me.

Have a great afternoon.

You can use a right click for the same thing Aug 27, 2012

You can use a right click, followed by Remove Translation; it does the same thing.
