Auto-Propagate VERY slow!

Hello,

My present text has large tables full of numbers. These appear to be auto-propagated and are shown as 100% matches, but are not yet confirmed.

Every time I confirm one of these segments, I hear a ping, the match changes to 99%, and a small window opens, "Please wait, Auto-propagating translation". This takes about 10 seconds for every segment, although the translation is there, and it is holding me up awfully - these tables are very large!

Does anyone have an idea how I can speed things up?

Thank you.

Change AP settings Apr 9, 2011

Via Tools - Options - Editor - Auto-propagate
I would let the program confirm the auto propagated segments. This way it would not stop there again.
In fact I only use the setting "Always prompt user" and "Confirm" after AP.
That way I can fully controll the behaviour of Auto Propagationicon_smile.gif

Jerzy's solution Feb 10, 2015

Curiously there was no waiting around on the first set of figures in an 80,000-word annual report with lots of figures in tables, but it started the "self-propagating-please-wait" thing on the second set, and I'm pretty sure I did as Jerzy suggests. Now, however, I've been put on hold for 15 minutes and counting (about 3/4 of the way through the stupid green filler bar), while it seems to be sifting the whole document. I hope this is the last time ...

I think ... Feb 10, 2015

... I've got the hang of this now, thanks to Jerzy. Again.

The boxes I have checked are Activate Auto P, Confirm ... and Always ...

I now realise that when it tells you how many repeats there are further down in the text, and asks you if you want to say Yes to all of them, it holds you up a little, but it's worth it in the end. Next time it just glides over any subsequent 100% segments. The reason I was waiting so long for the numbers was that there were hundreds of them, but it doesn't even stop on them now.

This may seem obvious to loads of Studio geeks out there, but finally I seem to be gaining time again. Which is the ruddy point of it, isn't it?

Use regex - more reliable than AP Jul 16, 2017

AP is a good tool, but regex allows you to achieve the same solution in part of the time and on top much more reliable.
Use display filter (Review tab in Studio). You need to enter this there, then press Enter:

^[\d\W]*$

This will filter ALL segments, which do not contain anything else but numbers, dots, commas, spaces and so on (only NON word characters and digits).
Select all segments, copy source to target, confirm all segments and you're done.
