If a certain segment appears twice in a doc, you translate it the first time and it automatically appears the second time as a %100 match. Now, while reviewing the doc, if I make a change in the first segment, what command is there that should update the second occurrence of the same segment without me having to (i) do it manually, (ii) clear target segment and re-insert translation from TM??

TIA

Depends on your software Jun 6, 2012

In Tageditor you have to make the change yourself in each segment. In Studio the change will be made automatically in the same file for all segments that are 100% matches.

Check that you have enabled "Auto-propagate exact matches to confirmed segments" under Tools>options>Editor>auto-progagation.
