Suggestion for next release: NOT jumping to the next unconfirmed segment when confirming a segment

Hi. I use SDL Studio quite often and there's something which is annoying very much when reviewing my own translation: it would be nice if the cursor didn't jump to the next unconfirmed segment when i confirm a segment (or didn't change a 100% in CM segment when the cursor is in it, for that matter).
It's ok if it's a few hundred words file, but when it comes to a few thousand words and that i have to review every single segment because it's my own translation, but always have to come back several segments backward, then it becomes very, very, very annoying. Couldn't you fix that in the next release? SDLX didn't do that.
Or if it is already possible to avoid that, please tell me which setting to change. I've looked everywhere and couldn't find anything. Thanks.

You can confirm a segment and move to the next one (instead of moving to the next unconfirmed) by pressing CTRL+ALT+ENTER

Hmm... Jul 19, 2013

This would mean moving manually through the whole document instead of saving time with the automation function...

To change your options, you should go to tools - options - editor - autopropagation, and check the options you need there:
Enable auto-propagation (or no)
If yes, then starting from the next segment in the document, or from the first segment etc.

Also, you can use the screen filters in editor to show|hide certain types of segments:
Display:
100% matches
fuzzies
draft
with/without tracked changes
confirmed/unconfirmed
locked/unlocked
etc etc etc

Hope this helps.

Sure Jul 19, 2013

Just wanted to remind you about many other existing options which often are very useful.
