Is there a way to filter the Editor grid for unique strings? There is a predefined "duplicate segments" filter, and I think something quite opposite would be much more useful when reviewing your translation.

While we are at it, what is the regular expression in Studio for strings ending in a particular character, say, a period or colon? I must say that this is one set of regular expressions too many for me to learn (I used the link provided in the help file). Why can free software like Olifant have a lot more useful predefined filters, but SLD Trados makes you do your homework and learn new regular expressions?

Wouldn't it also be great to have two sets of filters - one for Source and one for Target strings? This way you could e.g. filter for source strings that contain the word ABC and target strings that do not contain the word XYZ etc. I'm pretty sure I've posted such an idea on the SDL website, but so far to no avail.

Thank you in advance.

The filter bar could also use some speeding up via keyboard accessibility, thus far not available:

1 enable a keyboard shortcut to activate (go to) the filter dialog box
2 a keyboard shortcut to filter either for source or for target (Enter works for whatever is selected (source or target). It would be more useful to have Enter for source, and (say) Ctrl-Enter for target. I often flip between the two, and it's annoying to have to have to find the mouse to do this.
