Hello,

TRADOS Studio always put together numbers and units, even if in the TM they are separated.

Anyone knows how to disable this automatic feature which may cause me a lot of trouble...? I am sure that there must be a checkbox somewhere, but I have not been able to find it!

Thanks in advance for your support!

As this did separate numbers and segments.
The "check box" you are missing is a set of very complicated regular expressions, so I cannot really tell you what to change there to get your desired behavior.

... you could use these settings which give you a number of options for customising the spaces between numbers and units;
