I am using Trados 2007 Freelance with Word 2003 under Vista.
In a recent assignment the client provided the TM, and requested that 100% matches are not to be revised. Translation files were in .rtf format, and I used Word as translation environment.
In the final revision stage, I just wanted to skip any 100% match, and used the key combination Alt+Ctrl+S that should jump to the next 'No 100%'.
However, I had to learn that in many cases it skipped 'No 100%' matches such as 95% or 75%, and arrived at 100% matches. It worked simply the opposite way!
As I did not want to risk missing any 'No 100%', I went thru all the segments, including 100% matches but that took quite a long time.
Now I don't trust the 'No 100%' command any more.
In the past, it worked well.
What could happen? Have you had such experience?
I browsed thru this forum and Trados support but couldn't find any reference to this issue.

Thank you
