I don't see the option to add multiple variables to an existing TM but I wonder if there's a another way to do it. I tried to open the TM file with a text editor but the TM was opened in HEX editor mode, so I can't modify it.

I'm working on a large project about a series of similar products, so I'd like to enter the variables as I run across them on the project. Is there a workaround?

By the way, probably it's already been suggested but having a way to add variables on the fly and would be a great addition. Same with importing/exporting variables.

Edit:

This is related but it's not the same. I like working with project TMs, so if I add a variable, will it be added to the main TM when the project is finalized?

Hi Claudia,

In the TM view, right-click on the TM you want add variables to - sorry missed Settings - Language Resources - Variable List - Edit and add your variables

HTH,

Bernard

Thank you Bernard. But I actually meant a way to add multiple variables at once. I've been adding each variable to each TM but it's very time-consuming.
