Export interim target files?

So a client of mine urgently needs an export of a large project, even though I'm not finished with the proofreading. I don't want this junk in my TM. I can't just press -F12 because I'm working with hundreds of merged XML files - every single file requires confirmation before it is saved. So this is not an option...
So I tried "Save Target Files", which at least produced the (rotten) goods.
But now (a) my merged file has disappeared from the Files view and (b) the only options left in the context menu for this project are "Export files" and "Copy to target languages".
Two questions:
- How can I continue to work on this project - without having to open each XML file individually! and
- How do I complete this project, i.e. proofreading, export and update main memories?

I hope I've expressed myself clearly. Studios options in my situation seem to be anything other than clear! I tried Googling for "export interim version" and "export preliminary...", but nothing came up

Go to your long list of files in the target language Files window, right click one of the files and the last option is "revert to sdlxliff".


- How do I complete this project, i.e. proofreading, export and update main memories?


Not sure what you mean. Can't you go on now that you know how to re-open the merged sdlxliff file?

(Edited to change re-convert to revert.)

Thank you! Jun 4, 2013

Emma, fantastic - that's great. Learned something new again
Yes, the second question was redundant - I think my nerves were a little frayed, at the time.
