I've posted re segmentation issues at least a couple of times and thought it had all been sorted.

But here were go again!


"S.A." in abbreviation list:


The abbreviation list is from the TM at the top of the list.

The incorrectly segmented text is from an MS Word file with no paragraph of other breaks after "S.A." or "C.V."

Any help is appreciated!

Have you changed... Oct 12, 2012

... any of the other segmentation rules in the TM? I opened this sentence with a new TM that also contained these abbreviations as they are default, and get this:

Yep! Oct 12, 2012

I had added ".-" (which often appears after numbers in number lists in Spanish) to segmentation rules and after resetting to defaults "S.A." and "C.V." do not get segmented.

Not sure why ".-" would affect "S.A." and "C.V." though?

Thanks as ever, Paul.
