I'm no expert on this, but having just done a tranining course, am happy to send you what I was told - although I haven't actually had to test it out yet!

Click on the of the segment + Ctrl, and click on the of the segment you want to merge. Right click and select Merge Segment.

You should select the source segments (or place the cursor where you need the segment to be splitted) and right-click to merge (or split). You will be unable to do anything in case the segments are locked (unlock them previously) or if they belong to different paragraphs (this must be your case if you work with converted PDF).

It is normal: Studio does NOT produce PDF files. You are translating a converted Word file, so the target format is DOC(X). In case you need a PDF, make it separately.

Before wasting time for doing this, just try anothe document - a standard DOC, not a converted PDF.
