Auto-propagate fails in review mode - Studio

I keep having the same problem in Studio 2009 and 2011: Auto-propagate works as long as I work in the translation mode only. The moment I review the file in the review mode, auto-propagte doesn't work. E.g. I edit a sentence, confirm it and keep going - if the same sentence comes up (100% match), the new translation isn't auto-propagated and not just that: I can't even find the new translation in the TM when I do a concordance search for the source.

I have enabled "update TM" in the project settings and in Options> Editor> Auto-propagation the following is checked:

Under "General"
enable auto-propagation
auto-propagate 100% matches to confirmed segments

Under "Prompt User"
Never- always auto-propagate translations without prompting users

I just can't think of anything that should be set differently and I wasn't able to find an answer to this in other posts. If anyone can help with this, I'd really appreciate it since this problem is costing me a lot of time.

Thanks a lot!

Looks as if we're the only oddballs here.icon_frown.gif
I never found out what to do about this. It doesn't seem to happen so often lately - it only happens with certain files but it drives me crazy that I don't know what the reason for this is...

Disable Track Change May 2, 2014

I was experiencing the same issue and reading SDL knowledge at

it reads

Auto-propagation and Tracked Changes
Auto-propagation is automatically disabled:
From segments containing tracked changes in the source and/or target.
To segments containing tracked changes in the source and/or target.

so simply disable track changes under Options > Editor > Track Changes > delect all

Save, close your file and re-open it.
