I'm working with Studio 2009 and just discovered that when searching for a specific term in one of my TM (I am in the maintenance menu of the TM window), with the search fonction, Studio doesn't go through all the TM until it finds it, but goes page by page, asking me each time if I want to continue the search on the next page... considering I have ten of thousands of segments, how much time do you think I will spend on that?
Maybe there's a solution I don't know about, if anyone could help me...

Increase the number of TUs displayed per page Oct 27, 2010

At the moment, this is to my knowledge the only thing you can do to at least ease this process a bit.

In Tools - Options - Translation Memory View you can change the number of TUs displayed per page, so that at least you need to paginate less frequently.

I suggest you submit an idea on and also vote for this one:

Perhaps this works Oct 27, 2010

In Translation Memory View go to Edit/Find and Replace, and at „Look in:” choose „Selection”, then select the whole target text. So you can search the whole target text without interruption, by pressing „Find next”.

SP3 does search of entire TM Oct 27, 2010

I'm not quite sure how it was in pre SP3, but in SP3 there is the "Search Details" Box (View/Search Details), where you can select "Search entire TM". Then all you need to do is to leaf through the results windows.
