I want to merge two segments together but this option is not active. I select the two segments, then have a right click on them, and then I want to select "merge segments", but the option is not active!
why is it not active? and how can I activate it?
Thank you in advance.

merging files Oct 30, 2012

You must mark files to be merged, using a short cut Ctrl + A.

Sometimes it's just impossible Oct 30, 2012

Trados will not let you join segments if they are separated by a paragraph sign.

segments, not files. Oct 30, 2012

Mr. Lekawa,
Thank you for your prompt reply. I want to merge two segments, not files.

ah, yes Oct 30, 2012

Jean-Pierre,
Thank you for your notice, being totally new to trados, I did not notice that these segments are marked by the paragraph sign. If it is "just impossible", then ok, and thank you for your comment.

If you can get the original files Oct 30, 2012

You could try to find out why the segment is split. Last week I got prepared files with lots of abbreviation that were not on the list. So at each full stop the segment was split. Fortunately I could get the original files, add the missing abbreviations to the list and prepare the files for translation without these splits. This was done in Wordfast Pro, but there must be a list of abbreviations also in Studio.
